Thought Obama Chicken Fingers were hard to stomach?

Then you'll absolutely choke on the latest shameless attempt to capitalize on the name of America's first black president: Obama Fried Chicken joints.

This time we can't blame it on clueless Germans or Russians, or even right-wing zealots who can't get over the results of election 2008. No, this trend is made in New York City by merchants who are, in all likelihood, just trying to ride the wave of Obama's popularity to riches.


Two city fast-food joints are calling themselves Obama Fried Chicken -- and the new names are ruffling some feathers.

Eateries in Brooklyn and Manhattan plastered the new president's last name on their awnings recently.

And some passersby are cringing, saying the name change plays into old racial stereotypes.

Let's just pause for a moment to say right here that black people do eat fried chicken. There's nothing racist in saying that or admitting it. I'll go further: opening up a fried chicken restaurant in a black neighborhood (or any American neighborhood for that matter) is a good idea. Few foods are more American than fried chicken. It's a good bet that's why Royal Fried Chicken in the predominantly black Brooklyn neighborhood of Brownsville recently decided to change its name to Obama Fried Chicken.



"Fried chicken, watermelon and minstrels are part of the racist stereotyping of black people in America," said New York City Councilman Charles Barron, according to the Times. "It's outrageous. You have to be sensitive and knowledgeable." In response to the opening of Obama Fried Chicken in Brownsville, Barron said on April 3 that he will organize a demonstration outside Obama Fried Chicken in his Brooklyn district. Organizers have said they may also target Obama Fried Chicken & Pizza in Harlem.

With grape soda, bitch!
No but really, I feel slightly offended.
Why couldn't they make Obama salad or Obama smoothies?
