Pat Robertson Asks ‘What Is This Mac And Cheese, Is That A Black Thing?’
700 Club host Pat Robertson was utterly flummoxed over a Thanksgiving food item discussed by co-anchor Kristi Watts during an interview with former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. “What is this Mac and Cheese, is that a black thing?” Robertson asked in bewilderment.
“What’s that one thing at Thanksgiving you just have to have?” Watts, who happens to be African-American, had asked Rice.
“It’s Mac and Cheese,” Rice responded.
A confused Robertson, who grew up in Lexington, Virginia, acted like he had never heard of the culinary dish, a popular American staple for generations and absent-mindedly singled out the meal as a food reserved for blacks. Smithsonian Magazine notes that Kraft Foods first introduced its boxed macaroni and cheese in 1937.
“It is a black thing, Pat!” exclaimed Watts. “Listen! And you guys! The world needs to get on board with macaroni and cheese. Seriously, I just– Christmas and Thanksgiving, we have to have macaroni and cheese and it just trips me out that you just don’t. ”
“I don’t and I have never!” the televangelist conceded.
