Damned if you do, damned if you don’t. If the original poster wasn’t sensitive to this issue (I would have also assumed that blacks would be offended by such a meal as well), she would be a redneck, but by pointed out the issue, she’s overly PC. One thing I learned living in the US is that no two racial groups think alike when it comes to what is considered offensive or acceptable. I developed all of my beliefs about culture and sensitivity from the media and my peers. Even into the 90’s whites were still referring to Asians as ‘Orientals’ and while offended, I bit my tongue. Other non-white friends of mine were less understanding…
