“Kale is just collard greens for white people”

Kale has been compared to collard greens.

“A friend of mine once told me that kale is like collard greens for white people. Probably true” was posted on Twitter by DJ Dharma on May 1, 2012. “Kale is basically the white people’s collard greens” was posted on Twitter by Cuckasaurus Rex on November 24, 2012. “Kale is Just Collard Greens For White People” was posted on Reddit—Showerthoughts on December 11, 2014. “KALE IS JUST WHITE PEOPLE COLLARD GREENS” was posted on Twitter by Vega on April 16, 2018.


Wikipedia: Kale
Kale (/keɪl/), or leaf cabbage, belongs to a group of cabbage (Brassica oleracea) cultivars grown for their edible leaves, although some are used as ornamentals. Kale plants have green or purple leaves, and the central leaves do not form a head (as with headed cabbage). Kales are considered to be closer to wild cabbage than most of the many domesticated forms of Brassica oleracea.

Wikipedia: Collard (plant)
Collard refers to certain loose-leafed cultivars of Brassica oleracea, the same species as many common vegetables, including cabbage (Capitata Group) and broccoli (Italica Group). Collard is a member of the Viridis Group of Brassica oleracea. American collard cultivars are more correctly placed in the Viridis cultivar group due to a high genetic similarity with cabbage, although older publications often include them within the Acephala Group (kale).
