To millions of shoppers, the supermarket is just a place to stock up on produce and pantry staples to keep the family fed. But to others, especially children of immigrants who may already feel pushed to the margins of the American mainstream, the supermarket can be just another place to experience the sting of their outsider status.

The sting occurs whenever they walk down the “ethnic” food aisle, the section of the supermarket that, to some, plays out like a remnant of the Jim Crow era, when laws established separate facilities for African Americans in the post-Reconstruction South. Sometimes known as the “international” food aisle, or even “Asian” and “Latino” aisles, these rows can come across to the shoppers they seemingly target as de facto segregation, another kind of “separate but equal” policy that marginalized African Americans for generations.

“If you go to the ethnic food aisle, that is sort of the last bastion of racism that you can see in full daylight in retail America,” David Chang, the man at the helm of the Momofuku empire, said on his podcast this summer. “It is something that’s got to go.”

I'm proud to be black - said the black.
I'm proud to be Asian - said the Asian.
I'm proud to be white - said the racist.

Any immigrant who is offended by a grocery store's conscientious attempt to accommodate them can get the hell out of my country for all I care.

That said, I suspect for every one immigrant who is thus offended, there at least 1,000 patronizing woke-tards who are offended on their behalf.

Damn, while he's at it, better break up the ethnic cities of Little China, Little Italy, Little Havana, Little Haiti, etc...... These cities are dominated by those races and cultures, with stores erected exclusively for them.

No, it gets worse -- especially when academics get their hands on these screwball notions about food intersectionality. Check out this video from 24:29 through 28:12:
