Also, thanks Charles. Love the juxtaposition of the different faces of Zimbabwe / Rhodesia in the PNW.

@12, thanks for that...so many people are unaware of Seattle's history of segregation.

@46 You shouldn't jump to conclusions about who he does or doesn't know. This is the crew at Rock Creek. His number three there is someone of "African heritage." I'm not defending his boneheadnesses ... just saying making assumptions about folks may lead you astray.

I know the chef and, while I think he is guilty of being unfortunately tone deaf to not have predicted this response, I know that this brunch idea comes from his sincere love of all things hip hop. We're regulars at the bar there and there is always a fantastic rotation of classic rap playing. At worst, he is guilty of what Larry Mizell, Jr. said on his response to the original post: "Good ol NW cluelessness."

@38 Fnarf, did you listen to the audio? The commentary by this douchebag of a radio host was cut in with a pre-recorded interview of Eric Donnelly. He wasn't live on the show. I think his mistake was trusting this asshole to represent his position.

Roux is pretty good...maybe they can reopen for lunch during the week.

And who elects these idiots? Who makes sure that Tea Party maggots beat the Dems and even the half-way reasonable Republicans? They bear a good chunk of the blame--for being susceptible to the siren song of the money that is thrown at the messaging, for not bothering to be informed, for being dogmatic asshats.

I've been using Feedly. It's actually pretty good.

@6, it's a private company, so it's possible it's owned by a small number of people (or even one person) instead of your typical corporate structure. It looks like the company started as a co-op. Anyone know their ownership structure?

He's absolutely entitled to his "freedom of religion" and we're absolutely entitled to not buy any of the crap they make any more. I wonder if he's done the analysis on the demographics of most organic product customers.
