11 Foods You Had To Explain To Your White Friends

When I was a kid and I had friends over for dinner, my mom would make a big deal of it and cook a traditional meal. While the food was very delicious, I always had to come up with ways of breaking down for my friends exactly what we were eating. They came from homes where the average meal was pizza or burgers and the average snack was Pringles or Go-Gurt.

Here’s just a few foods I had to explain to my white friends when I was growing up:
