Sub textual Interpretation of Gizzard Eating Elders in Kom Kingdom
Ok, there have been questions about who eats or does not eat chicken gizzard in a given situation within the Kom community at home or anywhere on the globe.
I was wondering if the actions of our ancestors could be seen/judged within the context in which they lived, survived and produced the kingdom (land and the people) that we have today.
Has it occurred to anyone that maybe (just maybe) it is out of LOVE that the elders made it a rule to have those parts to themselves? What do I mean out of "love"? Their actions (keeping the juicy parts of the chicken to themselves) seem selfish. Is the "give the gizzard to the elder rule" borne out of selfishness?
Now let's think about it.
