Yes I’ve heard it, although the bigger stereotype is for fruit flavored soda, especially grape, and seems to have been supplanted.
The white person version is Tang.
Some of those foods (catfish, grits) are also Southern things, so it isn’t exclusively black except that they make up a large part of the population. Add chitterlings (“chitlins”), okra, and collared greens, but again some might be associated with white southerners.
I cannot see it in my country, but I’m going to say it’s pretty bloody unlikely. Kool-Aid isn’t known as a stereotypical African-American drink, it’s known as the means by which a cult killed themselves in a massive murder-suicide.
Yes, it’s a stereotype. Is it offensive? In the way the Fox idiot said it, yes. I would not suggest bringing up koolaid in that manner. Juice boxes for kids? That’s safe. Black friend visits your house and you offer it to them (along with other drinks, think the Chappelle stand up), well, that’s murky, but generally inoffensive unless your koolaid is weak or you made green. I refuse to believe anyone likes green.
In the Northwest, at least on the Great Plains and in the Rockies, it’s Indian Time. I’ve never heard of CP time, but I have heard about slow and lazy black people.
The idea of eggs being a particularly “black” food is weird. It’s like saying water is ethnic: It’s a basic ingredient. It can’t be ethnic. Everyone uses it. But, of course, everyone down South eats watermelon, too, and that’s probably the most stereotypically black food there is.
To try to balance this out… The most stereotypically white food is mayonnaise on white bread with the crusts cut off. The most stereotypically white trash food is mayo on lime Jell-O, maybe with some fruit added.
It’s like doughnuts. It’s a perfectly ordinary food that anyone might eat and in any other context, it might be innocuous or have a different meaning. But ask a cop about doughnuts and you’re definitely implying something.
Fruity drinks—around here it’s grape soda or anything red-colored—strawberry soda, Hawaiian Punch—definitely a black stereotype.
CP Time is hilarious. As a white guy with a bunch of black friends, I don’t know which is funnier: them teasing me about being on time (“I have to adjust my schedule or you’ll be the only person here for a couple hours”), or me just shutting up when a couple shows up late and one spouse is rolling their eyes at the other about how late they are. And the spouse who wanted to arrive earlier ends up looking at ME with an “mmm-hmm” look, like “can you believe these late people?” I just giggle.
Yes, Kool-Aid is a stereotype, and yes Brian Kilmeade is a stupid fuck. A match made in heaven.
