(Daily Mail)   Mary J. Blige blames Burger King for the racist commercial that Mary J. Blige filmed where she sang about fried chicken. Mary J. Blige would never make a racist commercial so it must have been Burger King's fault   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 54

Very funny watching her back peddle after her buddies at the [insert name of african american special interest group] got involved.

Its not a racist commercial, but one filled with poor taste in music.

Just watched the commercial.

What the ever loving fark is she babbling about? Stupid commercial is stupid but not racist.

There's nothing racist about it. As a matter of fact if you think it's racist you're racist. If a white person sings about chicken are they racist? No? Then how come if a black person sings about chicken it's racist? Anyone of any color should be able to sing about chicken if they want to. You shouldn't even be seeing colors. She's a person singing about chicken period. Get over it and move into the 21st century.

When chicken is racist, only racists will be chicken

/wait... that's not right...

On second thought, they did stereotype the store manager. Danced like typical honkey.

That wasn't racist. Now, if they tried to pay her in fried chicken, that would be racist.

So is my droid phone racist when I ask it where the nearest Popeye's or Churches is and it always points me to the black part of town? Can I sue?

It's simple.... black people singing about fried chicken IS racist. You can't blame the black person for recognizing this, because as we all know, black people simply don't understand these things until they've given it several weeks thought. That blindness is caused by their love of fried chicken, which removes much of their ability to think rationally.

Think about it.

Fried chicken places have popped up everywhere in "urban" areas since the 60s, when crime drastically increased among minority populations. Clearly, the ingestion of fried chicken drives black people into an unthinking frenzy, which can wildly swing from soulful singing and dancing to committing violent crime... and who owns these fried chicken vendors? White people! It's possible the "Colonel" in Colonel Sanders' name is a reference to his rank in the militant wing of the KKK!!! This effect seems to be exclusive to Fried Chicken (One of those "secret herbs and spices" maybe?), since other foods considered "ethnic favorites" are not served by these chains and were certainly prevalent before the explosion of crime and poverty that grips urban areas.

Fried Chicken is a plot by racists, more insidious than crack... with gene-targeted ingredients that cause reactions only in black people. These reacions make them blind to their actions, and give them an intense desire for more fried chicken. The fried chicken itself also causes health issues, leading to shorter natural lives (if they can survive the violence caused by this demon-spawned food)

Stop allowing the man to do this to you! Boycott all places serving fried chicken!!!

Voting "smart" because I agree. There's also that if one eats meat, they very likely also like chicken.

The real reason she's mad is the same reason as everyone else: BK took everything good off their menu to try to get some new "clean" image like McDonalds.

They only cleaning they needed was their restaurants. Bring back the BK Stacker, Italian Chicken Sandwich, Rodeo Burger, Onion Rings, your fries from way back before you decided to come out with "new fries", and those awesome 99¢ Jalapeño Poppers which disappeared for absolutely no good reason.

And, make commercials which are actually funny again.

You're not McDonalds, and you shouldn't try to be.

It is insensitive and reminiscent of the Sambo days (My, my, this sure am good!). But the biatch cashed the check and didn't have the good sense to say "No" in the first place. She can cry and whine all she wants, but she got her green and her gold.

Yep.

Commercial is only racist because people who believe in stereotypes make it racist. Just another shiatty fast food commercial, otherwise.

I LOVE collard greens!
 
2012-06-30 12:19:56 PM  
Remember when Fuzzy Zoeller talked about collard greens and fried chicken and not one single person didn't get the reference? This stereotype almost exists at a societal subconscious level. It's not going to go away so it might as well be laughed off in most cases except the real racist usage such as Zoeller's.

So is it racist when I see a KFC in a minority neighborhood? Those bastards!

Wow, I think I can date how long it's been since I've been to Burger King.

I got a Rodeo burger as usual, and it was after their "new" fries, which are nice because they aren't leathery sticks of spite that taste like fish.

I stopped going when their coffee started to taste... bad. The only way I can describe it is that it tasted like whoever would clean the machine wasn't rinsing the cleaning solution out. That's what it tasted like, some sort of industrial cleaner.

/plus the new girl at the drive-through had a shiatty attitude and a tattoo on her arm

The commercial is stupid, but in the same way all the new BK commercials are.

Personally, I was offended by the David Beckham striptease, but that's cause I hate him.

Well, it's a well known fact, Sonny Jim, that there's a secret society of the five wealthiest people in the world, known as The Pentavirate, who run everything in the world, including the newspapers, and meet tri-annually at a secret country mansion in Colorado, known as The Meadows.

The Queen, The Vatican, The Gettys, The Rothschilds, *and* Colonel Sanders before he went tits up. Oh, I hated the Colonel with is wee *beady* eyes, and that smug look on his face. "Oh, you're gonna buy my chicken! Ohhhhh!"

Because he puts an addictive chemical in his chicken that makes ya crave it fortnightly, smartass!

So is Run DMC racist?

It's Christmas time in Hollis Queens
Mom's cooking chicken and collard greens
Rice and stuffing, macaroni and cheese
And Santa put gifts under Christmas trees
Decorate the house with lights at night
Snow's on the ground, snow white so bright
In the fireplace is the yule log
Beneath the mistle toe as we drink egg nog
The rhymes you hear are the rhymes of Darryl's
But each and every year we bust Chrsitmas carrols

Clearly to avoid this problem in the future the answer is for advertisers to exclude all Black people from ads containing or referring to chicken or watermelon. And maybe, just to be safe, all poultry or fruits from the cucurbitaceae family.

Yes. Segregate the association between skin color and chicken flesh. We'll call it "apart hide".

/stereotypes are stupid in general, but "race"-food stereotypes are the dumbest :)

I'm Irish/Welsh, so why can't I get pissed when people always assume that I chug whiskey and fark sheep? Because that's not fair, I prefer vodka.

It's stupid that food can be considered racist. If I want to eat fried chicken, I'm eating fried chicken.

Commercial isn't racist, just stupid (as is BK's entire ad campaign with their menu relaunch).

Next investigative sting:

Members of African American special interest group seen eating chicken. Confronted on camera, the outrage is epic.

burger kinf and macdonald's commercials have been the most racist things on television for some 20 years. there is no subtlety or soft sell. most every BK/MacD TV spot focused at the black audience employs music, theme and costumes tailored to insult in stereotypical fashion. a black american eating at a BK or MacD makes as much sense as a black man or woman becoming a police officer. why play the fool for the man? you know damm well whitey is not to be trusted.

Chinese Take-out is non-racist. They are in every neighborhood: black, white, rich, poor, catholic or jew, college town or common folk town. Excellent prices, healthy food served fast with a smile. America owes a great debt to the Chinese Take-out Restaurants. Long may they stay in business!

This thread is full of things both whitey and African Americany don't want to hear....

(I'm whitey, can I still have fried chicken.....which avoids me going off on the rant that the whole fried chicken thing is bloody ridiculous. This is America, we all love fried chicken!)

Okay, I'll bite.

Make that same assertion, but substitute each instance of "white" for "black" (and vice versa), and substitute "[singing about chicken]" with "[saying the N-word]."
