Because black people cant be anything other than slaves and hoodrats according to them.
We cant like science, photography and things. We can’t be complex individuals.
We can’t have our stories be seen as universal because Blackness is tainted by white supremacy.
Sometimes I think of how one tiny mutated cell can wipe out our whole civilization, but then I watch a video like this and think “nah, we’re way too awesome of a species to be defeated.”
I feel like my life is complete after watching this.
The Yummy History of Gen. Tso’s Chicken,
A staple of modern North American Chinese cuisine, no Chinese takeout, sit down meal, or buffet is complete without the sweet and spicy General Tso’s Chicken. While this delectable dish has origins in Hunan Cuisine, today it is as American as apple pie.
Most modern historians trace the origin to General Tso’s Chicken to a Chinese American chef named Peng Chang-Kui. Born in 1919, Peng was born to an impoverished family in the Hunanese capital Changsha. When he was a teenager, he was lucky enough to be chosen as an apprentice to the legendary Hunanese chef Cao Jingchen. Peng became very successful in the culinary business and by the end of World War II he had become the head chef for the Chinese Nationalist Government.
In 1949 Communist forces under Mao Tse Tung defeated the Nationalist forces and took over the country. Peng was evacuated to Taiwan along with the rest of the Nationalist government. It was then that Chef Peng invented the a dish that would be the precursor to modern Gen. Tso’s Chicken. The new dish featured battered chicken coated in a very spicy sauce, which like much of Hunan cuisine utilized the chili pepper for its spice . Unlike the dish today, Peng’s original recipe was hardly sweet at all, in fact the recipe didn’t even use any sugar. Chef Peng named it “General Tso’s Chicken”, after the Chinese general Tso Tsung-t’ang (Zuo Zongtang) famous for putting down a number of bloody rebellions in the mid 19th century.
Chef Peng continued his career in Taiwan until 1973 when he moved to the United States. There he opened his own restaurant on New York’s 44th street, right next to the United Nations Headquarters. The spot was certainly an ideal location, as his clientele consisted of a number of famous and powerful dignitaries. His most popular dish; General Tso’s Chicken. To make the dish more palatable to American tastes, Chef Peng modified his original recipe, toning done the spice of the sauce and making it much sweeter. The new dish was a big hit, especially with one important government official, Secretary of State Henry Kissinger (pictured above with Chef Peng). Instantly the dish became popular all over New York City as other chefs began to serve it with their cuisine. After a decade, the dish spread all over America. Today it is one of the most popular, if not the most popular dishes in modern American Chinese restaurants.
After making a fortune, Chef Peng moved back to Taiwan. In 1990 he moved back to his hometown Changsha with the purpose of introducing American style Chinese food to China. Unfortunately the restaurant failed, as customers complained that the dishes were too sweet.
