Tell Powell’s that Thug Kitchen is Racist!

November 7 – February 7, 2015

Powell’s Books, Inc.

1005 W Burnside St.

Several organizations and local businesses recently emailed Powell’s Books, Inc. reminding them why “Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give A F*ck: The Official Cookbook” is a problem and asking them to pull it from their shelves. Please read our letter here: http://www.resistanceecology.org/pull-thug-kitchen-letter-from-community-organizations-to-powells-books/

Whether you live in Portland or not, we’re asking you to please call and/or email Powell’s Books, Inc. and kindly express your concerns– that “Thug Kitchen: Eat Like You Give A F*ck: The Official Cookbook” perpetuates racist and violent stereotypes against black men, that the authors need to answer for their appropriation and ignorance, and that Powell’s should no longer host events with the authors.

Powell’s City of Books is the world’s largest, locally-owned, independent bookstore, located in Portland, OR and needs to be an inclusive community space.
