Televangelist Pat Robertson holds many convictions in his heart, but, apparently, knowing what’s on the Thanksgiving menu in the homes of African-Americans is not one of them.
On his 700 Club show on Wednesday, Robertson showed a clip from co-host Kristi Watts’s interview with Condoleezza Rice, in which Rice says her favorite Thanksgiving treat is macaroni and cheese.
Following the snippet, Robertson turns to Watts, who is Black, and asks inquisitively: “What is this mac ‘n’ cheese? Is that a Black thing?”
Yes, you read that right.
Ever more perplexing, Watts, who said she shares a love for the rich and creamy dish, responded, “It is a Black thing, Pat,” and that the world “needs to get on board.” After which, the two chuckled about the awkward exchange.
