I believe that their intent was innocent as they claim. They however did not comprehend what others might think about it

"I don't think you can find a more pro-Democratic neighborhood. They're sort of shooting themselves in the foot. It is pretty outrageous."

If they're that pro-Democratic, why are they shopping at John Mackey's grocery store? If you want to shop at an anti-union, anti-healthcare reform, anti-global warming science business, you'd save a lot of money just going to Wal-Mart.

When did Whole Foods organic chicken become a stereotype?  I suppose you could cut it up, batter it and deep fry it... but that's as much work as making that sign offensive.

/Now if you want to go on about using any sitting president in advertising of any kind, and how that cheapens the Office...
 
2013-02-22 09:21:03 AM
Maybe they'd have been better off using VP Uncle Joe Biden? He seems pretty hard to offend.

What, it's not like they were advertising a chicken, watermelon, and grape Kool-Aid meal or something.

So I live in this formerly hippie, but now yuppie town (Decatur, GA).  Wal-Mart is trying to tear down a decrepit, abandoned strip mall and replace it with a Wal-Mart.  This has brought out a contingent that absolutely can't stand the idea of Wal-Mart because of their labor practices and their whatevers, but really it's because it's Wal-Mart.  Wal-Mart has even gone so far to propose a LEED building, greenspace, and some type of art space (not sure how that's going to work) as part of their proposal, but it's not enough.  The point is that it's Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart is declasse.

Some asshole finally got to the point and said "we want a Whole Foods there instead."

If it had been Popeye's fried chicken or something, they might have a point. I'm not sure that overpriced "organic, free range, hormone free, other meaningless-but-healthy-and-environmentally-responsible-sounding-adjec tives" chicken from Whole Paycheck really fits the stereotype. I'm guessing they don't sell a lot of that in the projects.

I might have said something similar before I found out what an ass John Mackey is. Now I don't go to Whole Foods anymore. I stick to my Fresh Market (their bread is better anyway). The short of it is, it's hard to know everything at once, but I feel sure that once those people find out that Whole Foods labor practices are as bad as Wal-Mart's they'd feel the same way.

If you're going to advertise chicken, you must discriminate against black people solely based on race when choosing a model for your graphics, or else you're a racist.

You should have found one of the protesters who works for a low wage and no benefits, and started a protest and boycott to put the place he works at out of business. Tell him that you're doing it so he'll have a better job with benefits. That would have been hilarious.

I see a simple solution. Ban all black people from chicken ads. No black people to be allowed to advertise or be associated with chicken to prevent further injustice because nothing will create more equality than banning an entire group from something.

Have you been to the Howell Mill Wal-Mart? When they were seeking approval, they claimed it would be high end (relatively speaking). Hardwood floors, artisan cheeses, etc. That lasted all of about a month. Now it's a dump like any other Wal-Mart. Of course it's packed and that part of town wasn't really well retailed so they were filling a void but nevertheless, they lied like crazy to get it approved. I'm sure the people in Decatur are well aware of the value of anything Wal-Mart promises.

That's fair.  I can see that it's bullshiat.  Regardless, the area is under-retailed for the kind of consumer that doesn't want to buy artisan birdhouses and I can see the space they're going to fill.

I think those protestors are likely professors.  27% of the city has a graduate degree.  The median income (for an individual) is $73k.

Wal-Mart is undesirable because of who shops there as much as it is because of who runs it.

WalMart will lie about anything to get their brand in the area and after it's established and a few local stores go under, they raise the prices and get rid of the stuff that they promised would be there to relieve the protests. If WalMart paid their employees more and didn't use taxpayer funds as a proxy to reduce their costs (with healthcare, which WalMart could easily supply themselves with a minimum hit to their profits), then I would be fine with WalMart coming in, until then it doesn't work out for the area or the people. I would say a good third option would be CostCo, their stores are just as big as WalMart and they pay their employees fairly, provide healthcare and other benefits, and have inexpensive products.

While that's true there's really nothing for them to replace.  The area retail is Marshalls and Ross.  Decatur is gastropubs, breweries, and assorted businesses to support Emory.  They're tearing down a thrift store, an estate sale store, and a Jo-Ann Fabrics.

I suppose it's for the African immigrant community that lives within walking distance outside of the city limits to the East.  It will be a messy, dimly-lit box with poor service like all the other Wal-Marts... and it will be packed.

Far be it for me to defend Whole Foods and John Mackey (who is a tool), but their labor practices aren't as bad as those of Wal-Mart. They're bad, but they're not that bad. Employees are paid relatively high wages, there are some benefits, and the employee discount is substantial.

That being said, John Mackey's a hypocritcal tool.

I think you've put your finger on it. The very existence of WalMart is a stench in the nostrils of the elitist buttwads who make policy in my city, not to mention the rent-seeking unions and supermarket owners, and they've gotten passed ordinances that prevent the construction of the Super WalMart type of store. My hope is that WM does what it's done in other areas and mount an initiative campaign to overturn this crap.

How close can a black person get to a chicken before it is racist?
 
2013-02-22 03:48:04 PM
I have been a cashier at a large retail giant for a few years now. I still can't get over how often stereotypes are true when it comes to food, clothing, and vice choices among all races. For example, whites buying Mt dew, chips, lots of sugary stuff, Latinos get LOTS of produce, Asians get rice and produce and noodles, blacks get chicken and ribs and grape and orange soda and lots of koolaid. And 9 times out of 10, if a black person asks for ciggs, it's Newports. The most true stereotype I have encountered is that black people smoke Newports. To my understanding, Newports used to be heavily marketed to blacks, so it became a popular brand that way. Most people who start smoking do it by swiping them from mom or dad, and since they were often Newports, the cycle continued.

I also literally had a black man ACTUALLY EATING FRIED CHICKEN FROM THE DELI WHILE COMING THROUGH MY LINE. He then asked me how much Newports were. (Too much for his taste) and he bought grape soda with LINK (food stamps). I still can't get over that guy.

Dr.Mxyzptlk.: Blacks in a chicken ad ! (other than the New Orleans chicken lady )

I am surprise they're able to find one for the gig .

Most blacks in the TV ads are successful CEO running tomorrow business today ; or helping white males navigate the difficulty of finical ,medical, insurance or office machines and life in general these days.


Yep. It's the same with women. Portray one negatively in an ad, even as a joke, and 10,000 women's groups will boycott your product for the rest of their lives. The only group allowed to be made fun of is white men, because white men aren't whiny crybabies like all the other races and genders.
