NYU serves Kool-Aid, watermelon during Black History Month dinne

Tyla Leach said she was upset that the meal served was stereotypical.

CAS sophomore Nia Harris detailed a similar encounter with the dining staff upon noticing the meal options.

"I sent out an e-mail to the deans, to several student organizations and I was trying to just raise awareness", she said.

The university president issued a statement saying the meal was inexcusably insensitive.

Europa League: Napoli win but exit, Lazio's Immobile hits hat-trick
According to Sarri, Napoli , like that Dutch national team, did not win but will be remembered for their achievements. Napoli visited Germany to face Leipzig in the second leg of the 32nd round of the Europa League .

NYU representative John Beckman told The Independent Aramark has fired all employees involved and asserted it was not NYU who decided the menu. Still, she said that she enjoyed the food. "We are grateful to the students who brought this to the attention of the University. It's just not an accurate way to celebrate the black students on campus", Leach said. We are extremely disappointed by this regrettable situation and apologize to the entire NYU community and communities everywhere for their insensitive and offensive actions. Each cook and chef needs to go through sensitivity training to ensure that they can responsibly provide food from a variety of cultures, especially since NYU is touted as a diverse school and there needs to be respect for every single culture.

Cultural clubs at NYU, which include the Governance Council of Minority and Marginalized Students, Black Student Union and the Black and Brown Coalition, put out a joint statement that supported Harris's remarks and how the menu choices affected people of color. These young professionals were able to learn and get the banking expertise they need because U.S. Bank has a dedicated program and outreach to the African American community. Eubanks explains that when she asked Tim Hoben, an operations manager and one of the employees that has now been fired, about the food and drink choices, he responded, "Are you, like, offended or something?"

Items like barbecue ribs, watermelon and Kool-Aid, were all featured on the menu at Weinstein dining hall Tuesday.

African Americans have long battled misguided stereotypes about their fondness for fried chicken, watermelon and certain other foods. And Kool Aid has been associated with black people living in poverty. "In 2018, there's no excuse for intentional and deliberate disrespect", Harris wrote. However, I don't want it to stop there.
