Round eyed know-it-alls protest against opening a Panda Express restaurant near the U.C. berkeley campus

The SF Chronicle ran a story about the protest. Ugly white vegetarians are up in arms over the idea that a chain famous for serving delicious "American style" Cantonese food is planning to open a restaurant in Berkeley.

Seemingly unable to understand the concepts they supposedly invented, "hands off my body" and "choice," the protestors claim to be very concerned that students will put unhealthy, bad tasting, inauthentic Chinese fast food into their persons.

Aside from the fact that it is none of their business, ever, what other people eat, they are definitely wrong about American style Chinese food not being delicious. It is. Chicken chow mein, pork fried rice, sweet and sour spare ribs, fried prawns, won ton soup, the usual traditional Chinese-American fare is all yummy.

It's always pathetic when a white person tells Asians what kind of Asian food they are allowed to like. I went to a Chinese restaurant with a Vietnamese friend who works for Kaiser. She brought 2 of her co-workers along, a young Chinese lady and an older white lady.

The white lady had the nerve to tell the Chinese girl she should not order "chicken chow mein" because it is "not real Chinese food."

"I always order chicken chow mein," the Chinese girl told the white lady.

I got news for the smug faced know-it-all gwai lo food police in Berkeley, a lot of Hispanics love Taco Bell, as well. Why don't you head for Taco Bell and try to snatch a chalupa out of some homie's hand, for the good of his health, and see what happens

Now if they had been protesting the utter lack of taste, not the cultural kind, of Panda Express then I might have joined as well. Or did the guy who pays the homeless to move his hot dog cart nightly put the vegans up to it.

What, Americans with slitty eyes can't evolve their own cuisine over two hundred years? Sounds racist to me...

I'd bet that the ancestors of your chow mein eating Celestial pal were Americans before the old bat's were, anyhow.

Well, Patty, iffin they don't like Panda they don't have to eat there. That simple. I am damn willing to bet that the stuff the vegetarians eat on a daily basis does not rival even fast food for delicious flavor. I was invited to a vegetarian thanksgiving once where the hostess got the entire meal from Whole Foods. It was gelatinous goo, inedible and cramp/gas inducing. She could have just had the usual fixings without the turkey and it would have been waaayy... better than the "special" vegan meal.
