Posted on 02/04/2010 1:11:10 PM PST by The Hound Passer
So who at NBC thought it would be a good idea for the special today to be, among other things, fried chicken, in honor of Black History Month?
Because, spoiler alert it wasnt a good idea at all. And now NBCU employee Questlove is bringing it to the attention of his 1 million plus Twitter followers.
Questlove, the band leader and drummer for The Roots (the house band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon) tweeted this picture from the NBC Commissary at 30 Rock, with the comment: Hmm HR?

I hope they offered watermelon for dessert.
The menu sounds GREAT!!!
Sounds like a damn fine meal to me. Too thin skinned I guess. Do they serve beans on Cinco de Mayo?
Grape soda & a pack of Kools?
Made my day! Condescending liberals.
Did Chrissy and Keity partake in the celebration?
Yeah they screwed up big time on the menu.
No Grape Kool-Aid.
I’m a white guy. I love fried chicken ... it is, quite honestly, one of my favorite things on this planet. Add some buffalo sauce, and I’m in heaven.
I understand being upset at offensive stereotypes ... but I have never understood being offended at the stereotype of liking fried chicken. Everybody likes fried chicken ... because its freaking awesome.
Is it offensive just because it is a stereotype? I don’t get it.
Mary Landrieu: "Did someone say fried chicken. Fire up the military plane and get me to NY."
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find only things evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelogus
Liberals, just stupid enough to not know how racist they are.
...should offered a 40oz bottle of Olde English malt liquor to wash it all down with.
Who in their right mind thinks jalapeno chillis should be served in cornbread to celebrate black history month? Down south we don’t use chillis in our corn bread. NBC is stupid and patronizing. Also, where are the chitlins? Shoosh.
What, no watermelon??
It does sound good.
Damn, Now I’m hungry!l........................I bet the Fried Chicken in NYC is imported............
If this happened at FOX there would already be an emergency congressional investigation and Obama all over the MSM demanding who,what,when,where and why, Bush, instigated this racist activity.
Wow! I knew his career took a big hit, but I didn’t realize Fuzzy Zoeller was lowered to running the NBC cafeteria?
I’m kind of fond of fried chicken myself. Now if a cafeteria featured potatoes and green beer for St. Patrick’s day I would happily partake.
And we all know that Colonel Sanders is black.
You have communicated my thoughts perfectly.
Sounds like good eatin’ to me! But I can’t imagine the roar had this been in the Fox News cafeteria.
Grape soda & a pack of Kools?
Nope. An RC Cokcola and a moon pie.
Fried chicken is great, what seems to be the problem?
should offered a 40oz bottle of Olde English malt liquor to wash it all down with.
And, if in New Orleans, a gin & juice.
About to go into a meeting, ping.
"Supposedly", it is offensive because it harken back to the days of both sharecropping (no time for lunch)and when blacks could not eat in restaurants. They packed fried chicken because it keeps well and still tastes good cold. I don't know. Rastus is supposed to be offensive too and I have never known blacks who longed for cream of wheat.
I laughed But jesse and al better start picketing right now
as Hound said IF this had been Fox it would be all over the news and libs would scream loudly that it shows how racist Fox and conservatives are
understand being upset at offensive stereotypes ... but I have never understood being offended at the stereotype of liking fried chicken. Everybody likes fried chicken ... because its freaking awesome.
In New Orleans tourists seek out our soul food restaurants for just that same menu and our black people are proud to serve it up. But, it is amusing when liberals tries to get righteous on us ;)
What, no pierogis?
In honor of the Matka Boska?
OK, I’m not offended. Rightfully.
What crap, you can’t fix decent greens with smoked turkey you have to use smoked jowl. Gee, don’t those yankees know anything.
Good catch sticker. Yea yankees are a very ignorant bunch. Why don’t they stick to yankee cooking - you know boil everything and serve it with potatoes.
“Who in their right mind thinks jalapeno chillis should be served in cornbread to celebrate black history month? Down south we dont use chillis in our corn bread.”
You are right! And they left out sweet tea, sweet potato pie and peach cobbler...yummy
About like being in boston a few years ago, went to a restaurant that said everything on the menu can be ordered blackened. That had to be authentic
Wouldn’t have to be Black History Month. They could just have that as a regular cafeteria menu and the race baiters would scream racists.
But NBC is missing watermelon so they’ll get a pass.
This is a joke, right? Please tell me that these people are not so cacooned in their “I can’t be a racist, I voted for Obama” (which has now replaced “I can’t be racist, I have black friends”) that they cannot see how blatant this is???
It doesn’t take a lot of talent to coat something in pepper and spices and fry it in butter...............
Is this sponsored by Fuzzy Zoeller?
and where’s the pepper sauce to douse down those greens with?
Obviously, this is magical Yankee, liberal, free trade, free range, organic, equal opportunity, Northern fried chicken. Made by union cafeteria workers. No offense could possibly have been intended.
“It doesnt take a lot of talent to coat something in pepper and spices and fry it in butter...............”
with all due respect, yeah it does. I can cook a mean pot o’chili, but for the life of me I cannot fry chicken.
THAT IS SO F’N FUNNY!!!!!!!!!!!!IM CRYING!!
“And I always thought I liked fried chicken because it’s delicious....turns out I’m genetically predisposed.”
