    •  What obvious reason? (0+ / 0-)

      Is this an official standard to name places that are "over the dead bodies of black people and on land that was acquired violently and through fraud" "Niggerhead"?  I don't think so.

      Are you suggesting that it is something to do with lynching?  Perhaps where a lynch mob beheaded a black person?

      I have not heard of beheading as a typical lynch method and most places that have enough people to form a lynch mob already have names.

      From the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/...

      The name “Niggerhead” has a long and wide history. It was once applied to products such as soap and chewing tobacco, but most often to geographic features such as hills and rocks.

      I'm not seeing the connection here.

      •  Iced Tilapia and Cinnamon Salad a la mode (1+ / 0-)

        1 lb. tilapia
        1 tbsp. cinnamon
        1 lb. mashed sole
        4 grapefruits
        1 lb. cooked tofu
        10 tsp. vinaigrette
        3 lbs. flounder
        6 chopped bananas
        2 tsp. baking soda
        2 cups jam
        6 heads of lettuce

        Preparing Iced Tilapia and Cinnamon Salad a la mode can be quite tricky.

        First, stir the grapefruits, bananas, vinaigrette, and tilapia.  Vigorously toss the sole and baking soda.   Freeze the jam, baking soda, cinnamon, and flounder. Broil the tofu and vinaigrette at 450 deg. for 37 minutes. Carefully fry the cinnamon and sole.   Next, fry the tofu and grapefruits.  Mash the tilapia, cinnamon, baking soda, and grapefruits.  To finish it off, grind the bananas, baking soda, and vinaigrette.

        Add a scoop or two of chocolate ice cream to each serving.
