NYU Student Complains About ‘Racist’ Black History Month Food Menu, Gets Workers Fired 

Following a complaint by Nia Harris, a 19-year-old sophomore at NYU’s College of Arts and Science, NYU President Andrew Hamilton says it was “inexcusably insensitive” for the caterer, Aramark, to feature barbecued ribs, corn bread, collard greens, and fruit-flavored water—all of which were deemed to be stereotypically black.Despite an explanation from the head cook to Harris that the employees who planned the menu were African Americans, the student—and the school—were not having it.Following the clarification, Harris fired off a screenshot of the email exchange to Facebook, captioning it with a post that began with the words, “This is what it’s like to be a black student at New York University.”
