    Why can't white people eat spicy food?

    Yes, i know this doesn't apply to all white people, and i am just curious.

    I've noticed that some white people have trouble eating spicy food. not because they can't handle the spice, but because it upsets their stomach + digestive system and whatnot. i haven't heard of anyone of a different race having trouble with spicy food.

    i know some people can't digest milk because they lack the enzymes needed to break down and digest lactose. but... don't the people have the enzymes to digest the spices? what's the deal?

    i don't mean to be disrespectful or racist in any way, and i apologize in advance if i came across that way.

    I'm half white, whatever that means and I like hot food but
    not stupid hot. Like way hotter than what most people
    eat but not say a handful of fresh Thai peppers.

    I think some people just never get exposed to remotely spicy
    food. A friend from Denmark couldn't handle the smallest
    smidge of Sriracha. I don't think it is genetic, or maybe it is?

    I never vacillate except when I do.

    I do not want to sound racist but why do snow monkeys ask stupid questions?

    You need to go to Texas, Louisiana, Arizona, New Mexico etc.

    The only common factor among people who eat spicy food is eating spicy food.
    The sample is just skewed to look like mostly spicy food is associated with non-whites
    because peppers tend to grow best in hot and sunny latitudes.

    When I go to Mexican restaurants I ask for either fresh jalapenos, habaneros or roasted ones - love 'em!

    BTW, the key to eating extremely hot foods, at least for me is to have the required Gelati or ice cream afterwards to prevent the so called flame a** effect

    My guess is that it's an acquired taste. If you're not used to all the sensations that go with spicy food, it can be uncomfortable. What folks don't realize is that those spices kill off a lot of bad bacteria. ...I'm a medium-spicy white girl, just for the record.

    Wait a minute. You're from Canada? I didn't know that spicy food was available up there. I remember ordering a sad excuse for a green chile chicken chimi in Canada. My northern European dining companions thought it was awesome. ...It's all about exposure.

    I used to say I had never found anything too hot for me, until I tried a bottle of Dave's Insanity. That stuff cured me of looking for hotter and hotter stuff. Now I just enjoy all the flavors of different levels of hot. I love the flavor and heat but flavor wins now. Habanero wins, good stuff.

    white people can't eat spicy food because
    heat is associated with hot places is associated
    with hell, and all white people are pre-destined to be
    saved.

    or something.

    maybe not.

    I hope not.

    k.

    bye.
