Two women had their business shut down. The reason? Serving burritos while being white. That's right, liberals shut down a burrito stand owned by two white females.
Kali Wilgus and Liz “LC” Connelly opened Kooks Burritos in Portland, Oregon. They were having success. The business was featured in a local newspaper. But it didn't last long. The duo was hit with loads of negative media and accused of "cultural appropriation" from your typical lunatic far leftists.
It appears Wilgus and Connely went over a line that does not exist. A line of a non-existent copyright on burritos.
Per Daily Wire:
The women explained to Willamette Week that they traveled to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, and became obsessed with tortillas, speaking with the local "tortilla ladies" for ingredients and tips.
"I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did," said Connelly. "They told us the basic ingredients, and we saw them moving and stretching the dough similar to how pizza makers do before rolling it out with rolling pins.”
After creating their own spin on the tortilla via a trial-and-error process, the women decided to engage in the American dream and open their own pop-up shop on the weekends. Kooks Burritos was born, and they thrived.
Well look at that. They wanted to open a burrito shop, so what did they do? They traveled to Mexico and learned how to do it first hand from real experts. Then they took what they learned and applied it and were making really good burritos. Sounds like Business 101 to me. These ladies rock.
But wait, here comes the social justice warriors.
Getting a whiff of Wilgus and Connelly's process of creating tortilla recipes, leftist outlets like Mic.com and The Portland Mercury pounced: painting the female entrepreneurs contributing to society as racist, sticky-fingered villains.
"Because of Portland’s underlying racism, the people who rightly own these traditions and cultures that exist are already treated poorly. These appropriating businesses are erasing and exploiting their already marginalized identities for the purpose of profit and praise," accused The Portland Mercury.
"People of color are nothing more than an afterthought when the white perpetrators of this tradition continue to do this on a regular basis. While Portland is supposedly a progressive place, super liberal white people usually only have other super white liberal people to answer to—which means this cycle of cultural appropriation will never end until people of color call attention to it," the piece continued.
"These appropriating businesses are erasing and exploiting their already marginalized identities for the purpose of profit and praise," added the outlet.
Soon after, the business was forced into closing its doors, and its online presence has all but disappeared. The Portland Mercury called the closure a "victory."
Liberals Shut Down Burrito Stand For Being Ran By White People
What has happened to Kooks Burritos is absolutely disgusting. These ladies did everything right. They went and learned what it takes to make a quality product, then they did it. As a result, customers were flocking to trie their burritos. Then the wacko far leftists of their community wouldn't stop until they took them down.
