So we can't even mention chicken now


Good to know, I must have missed the memo

And our country is lost.
Like we need to be told what is and is not racist.
jessus.

Can I get a list of all food items that People Who Will Not Be Named eat but I can't mention that they eat because that would be bad.

Or something.

You know that old school racism is really dead when this is the level of trivialities we argue about.
 
2012-04-04 04:10:43 PM  
How is that racist?

Link Language NSFW

Off to the studio late night
Time to cut another track
It's gotta be hype
Got my rhyme book in hand
A blue loose leaf
Anybody move on that
They get loose teeth
Evil's got the funky beat
A stupid dope loop
But the record's kind of old!
(What we gonna do troop?)
We gotta clean it up
Cause it's so dope
Tried the rubbing alcohol
Even the Ivory soap
But no matter what we do
The record keeps clickin'
fark IT!
Evil E, give me some of that
Damn fried chicken!

Black people can't like chicken anymore. It's racist.

Apparently that's the case

I remember a few years back KFC had this ad campaign of 3 commercials in rotation of different groups of people enjoying their crispy fried chicken. One was a bunch of attractive rednecks jumping into the back of a pick up and having a tail gate party. Another was a group of attractive families picnicking together. And the third was a group of attractive urban youth (i.e., black kids with an urban back drop) doing the same.

I don't remember any criticism for the stereotyping of black people, soccer moms or rednecks back then. However, when the black people ad did come on while I was watching TV with my parents my father actually said aloud "They're really spending money to market fried chicken to black people?"

Sh*t. You. Not.
 
2012-04-04 04:14:06 PM  
But Hooty singing the praises of the Tendercrisp wasn't?
 
2012-04-04 04:14:09 PM  
it's a bad commercial, but it's not racist, stupid but hey, that's what they paid for
 
2012-04-04 04:14:32 PM  
In a new bout of reverse-racism, black artists are no longer allowed to sing songs about chicken.
 
2012-04-04 04:14:52 PM  
What about McDonalds and their segregated commercials? Some commercials feature an all-white cast, others an all-black cast. Very few feature both white people and black people.
 
2012-04-04 04:15:03 PM  
Simple Rule: If you have to ask, it is racist.

/In before OMG BUT TEH FIRST AMENDMENTS!! ?
 
2012-04-04 04:15:09 PM  
Sounds like a new segment for Letterman.
 
2012-04-04 04:15:19 PM  
Are people really calling that racist? That's nuts! It's a goofy ad, but only because singing about chicken snack wraps is inherently goofy.
 
2012-04-04 04:15:33 PM  
It sounds more like White Guilt Liberals wimped out again

Whats next....the Chick Fil A Cows are cited for racism...because they are half-black?
 
2012-04-04 04:15:51 PM  
I'm black so I'm not getting a kick out of subby's headline, tag of "silly" or, to this point, any of these replies.

Apparently, Mary J. Blige didn't think so. Doesn't that count for something?
 
2012-04-04 04:16:15 PM  
Just letting you all know that I'm making chicken drumsticks for dinner tonight, with that new bread crumb and cheese coating that just went on sale. (Kraft Fresh Take)

I'm white, but I'm eating the chicken not because it's delicious and cheap, but in an attempt to be more multicultural in my life.
 
2012-04-04 04:16:15 PM  
To be fair, chicken is pretty delicious.

Serious Post on Serious Thread: /In before OMG BUT TEH FIRST AMENDMENTS!! ?


a lot of utter f*cking morons don't realize, the bill of rights doesn't restrict the people it restricts the government.

Want to apply for a job knowing they will make you take a piss test for illegal (safer) drugs?

ONLY the government is restricted from doing that.

Want to run up and grab the mic at a sporting event and sing the national anthem? They have every right to stop you -- and bludgeon or mace you -- because your sports team and arena are not the US government, and they owe you no freedom of speech.
 
2012-04-04 04:17:34 PM  
It's chicken. Rather tasty chicken, I might add. You need a specific melanin content to like chicken?
 
2012-04-04 04:18:10 PM  
All these years I thought I liked chicken because it was delicious, turns out I'm genetically predisposed to liking chicken.
 
2012-04-04 04:18:20 PM  
Farking everybody likes fried chicken. How the fark did it become a black thing? Fark.
 
2012-04-04 04:18:28 PM  
Just one more reason why only attractive Asian women should be allowed in any advertisement for anything.

So the Popeye's commercials featuring Annie the Chicken Queen is racist, too, then. Right?

That's completely retarded. KFC is farking awesome. Who doesn't love KFC?

It's chicken, Mr Sensitive. Put down that flag. There's a crutch attached to it and it looks - silly.
 
2012-04-04 04:20:03 PM  
well its not like she was rapping about their new watermelon shake\fried chicken combo nappy meal. geesh
 
2012-04-04 04:20:14 PM  
Oh for FARK's sake. Now black people are so dam* sensitive a successful black singer can't sing about fast food?

Shiat like this trivializes real racism. Little kid who cried wolf. We know the end of that story.
 
2012-04-04 04:20:24 PM  
Some of my best friends are chicken eaters.

PETA girls hate it, they hate it so much they will get naked to protest it.

Naked girls and fried chicken, that's how we little people go about winning.
 
2012-04-04 04:21:41 PM  
This is how stupid our country is now

FTA: The spokeswoman also noted that other celebrities, including Salma Hayek and Jay Leno, also are advertising the snack wraps.

So, not racist for anyone other than Blige. Were she the only person advertising that product, I would still say the complaints were stupid, but I would almost understand them.
 
2012-04-04 04:21:59 PM  
Was it this chicken?

2012-04-04 04:22:16 PM  
non story, Burger king pulled an ad, nobody outside of the company knew why, people looked for and reason and found a complaint from a blog, and said that's it, it makes the least amount of sense, lets go with that as an explanation.

Me. Though I have heard that Canadian KFC sucks compared to the US counterpart.
 
2012-04-04 04:22:57 PM  
Who's crying fowl about this exactly?
 
2012-04-04 04:23:02 PM  
Is she black?

Did she voluntarily sign up (and get paid) for this?

No. Not racist.

I can say without a doubt that Mary J. Blige herself is a racist coont.

Well, to be fair he (or she) is right about this. There will be some people making asses of themselves because they're racist. But not everyone. While the thread may be full of, "Wow, that's ridiculous." There will inevitably be the morons who wander in here, see normal people decrying a ridiculous story, and decide that now is the time to try to tack on some racist bullshiat to the anti-PC posts.

Of course, that's true for any Fark thread. Most people make a reasonable post and people on the extremes tack on stupid crap.

Apos: Who's crying fowl about this exactly?


Only a random few have bocked at this ad campaign.

Darius Rucker sings country, so he may not technically be black.
