If there was any doubt about Barack's blackness... True story: just the other day, I was at a people of color luncheon at work, and we had soul food, but no hot sauce. There was damn near a riot. One woman lamented the fact that she didn't have her car, because she usually kept a bottle in the trunk. [Via Us Weekly.]

I go back and forth about this. I know enough white people to know that hot sauce is by no means a black thing. That said, I do know black people who can't seem to live without it.

I hate hot sauce. I hate the way it smells. I hate its existence.

you are ig and so are your coworkers! lol. i avoided hot sauce for a long time b/c i thought it was a black stereotype. then i fell in love w/mexican food and spicy food as a result and also as the breaking point mentions, tho i was around white folk for a long time, it was even longer before i realized THEY LIKE HOT SAUCE AS MUCH AS BLACK FOLK!! phew. now pass the pete's please!

LH- lol, you would.

Jam- I didn't grow up around a lot of black people, but my mom is Jamaican, so we ate a LOT of spicy food. Jamaicans use what they call "pepper sauce" which is hotter than anything on earth. But when I got to Howard, hot sauce was everywhere, so I got addicted. And come on, how you gon' have collard greens without some hot sauce????
