Not Every Black Person Loves Chicken
I have to tell y’all, I’m not a big fan of chicken. Now I know, I know, since I’m black, every time I see a bucket of fried chicken I am supposed to do this:
Well I don’t. My love affair with fried chicken was always flaky (bad pun) and I really only ate it unless I had some honey and ketchup. Eww, yes I know, that’s how I eat my food, combining strange ass condiments like a mad scientist. Around 2004-ish, I just didn’t have a taste for it anymore. I couldn’t tell you why, but I just don’t. The other thing is I don’t understand other black folks love affair with it or why fried chicken is only attributed to black people.
For example, KFC has a mascot, and his name is Colonel Sanders, an old ass white dude who look like he beat up slaves during the Civil War. Popeye’s is…well I don’t know what the hell Popeye’s is, but I’m going to make a ridiculous assumption that its Popeye the Sailor to prove my point here. Church’s Chicken, it’s just a damn chicken wing set behind a Reading Rainbow background that looked like some kid who lost every crayon but blue and yellow did. I could understand attributing fried chicken to black people if on the sign there was this guy:
It isn’t though, so what the hell is up with that shit?
Secondly, black people, we can like chicken that damn much. I mean, I have seen fights break out at local chicken places over a damn 3-piece. Hell, in Chicago we had a singing group called 3-piece. Now one of the dude goes around beauty shops singing to random chicks in hopes of one of them to pay his bills or buy one of his mixtapes.
Seriously, if you committed murder, would you confess in exchange for a bucket of chicken? No, of course not, that sounds ridiculous!
The point is, not all black people love chicken. Well some people love it entirely too damn much, as evidenced by our growing obesity rate and damn near everyone in your family has some sort of diabetes, but seriously, that ish doesn’t apply to all of us.
Now eel on the other hand…
