NBC Cafeteria Celebrates Black History Month With Fried Chicken Special
Mediaite.com ^ | 02/04/10 | Steve Krakauer

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 wasn’t 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?”

Hmm indeed. I'm pretty sure I know the MSM's reaction if this had been discovered at the Fox News cafeteria -- rightfully so I must say. I guess I don't need to wonder if anyone at MSNBC will take notice.

Sounds like a damn fine meal to me. Too thin skinned I guess. Do they serve beans on Cinco de Mayo?

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.

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.

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.

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.

Anyone that has spent any time at all at a Wal-Mart Supercenter (they sell fried chicken/wings/etc at these stores) would realize that this is not at all a stereotype. I think it is dumb that NBC would think this is something that should be celebrated during BHM, but there is no controversy here, otherwise, except for those that are terminally offended at such things.

"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.

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 ;)

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.

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???

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.
