NYC's 'Obama fried chicken' restaurants ruffle feathers

Image

Only in New York, this happens. I thought it was messed up but also funny. :-D

Quote:
"Why name it that? Just because Obama is black, they're going to put his name on a fried chicken place in a black neighborhood?" said Akilah Nassy, 16, outside the Brooklyn store.

"If it were [Republican candidate John] McCain, nobody would make a McCain fried chicken place."


In response to why the owner named the place to Obama Chicken:

Quote:
"Basically, the owner loves Obama," said Mohammad Jabbar, 33, manager of the Brownsville store. "He loves him seriously. He supports him."


And to show the education level of students of NYC public education:

Quote:
However, student Skyler McCrimmon, 17, thought the name might be more appropriate "if it were a fancy restaurant."

McCain fried chicken just sounds entirely unappetizing. Besides, no chickens live that long.

With a beard and glasses, McCain might be able to get away with being a Colonel Sanders look alike........

It's 10:22AM. I was already starving. The fact I ran across this thread certainly didn't help. My stomach is rioting. :wink:
