Yvette Carnell: Why Stanley Crouch is Wrong About Black People and Soul Food

The hyperbolic sensationalism of Stanley Crouch’s article “Soul Food is Killing Black America” is laughable on its face. And the initial silliness I felt when reading the title was solidified by the nickname Crouch gave the filmmaker who is developing the soul food documentary – “Braveheart”. Just call me “Chuckles”, then. Because this is the funniest and most self-negating piece of trite I’ve read all week.

First, the notion that filmmaker Byron Hurt is somehow brave for “tackling” an issue which has been addressed a multitude of times is just daft.  Wasn’t the movie “Soul Food” based on the Sunday coalescing of black folks around a table of collard greens, fried chicken, corn bread, and ham hocks? And didn’t untreated diabetes kill Big Mama?

    Today to say that Soul Food is killing Black People would be a half truth because it’s the FOOD that’s killing every one, no matter how you fix it, or serve it. 98% of everything in the grocery stores contain GMO’s which mean they have no nutrition and are filled with toxins which ultimately cause diseases and people are dying from birth to geriatric. It is the food chain, not the types of foods that are causing the Obesity Pandemic. The answer to the problem is NUTRITION…PLAIN NUTRITION. Sad thing is you can’t get nutrition from a supplement on a shelf, if they worked no one would be sick. So what’s the solution? MORINGA OLEIFERA, the MIRACLE TREE, the TREE OF LIFE. Dr. Oz called it the Powerhouse Superfood. Tony Horton , Madonna, Evander Holyfield and so many more say the same. Google it. Watch the Discovery Channel Documentary on it. Then watch these videos and get back with me so you can try the Tree for 30 days money back guarantee: These are very interesting videos. Watch these. It can change your life physically and financially. Email me with your thoughts.
