Why do so many people think soul food is "black food" when most of it came from Native Americans and Europeans?

Update: Fried chicken originated from Scotland.  Waffles originated from Belgium.  Cornbread is Native American food.  BBQ is Taíno food.  Mac&cheese originated from England.  Mashed potatoes originated from England.  Hoecakes is Native American food.  Chicken fried steak is German/Austrian food.  Cobbler is English... show more Fried chicken originated from Scotland.
