Welcome to yet another thing I am confused about.
It never ends, but this time I think the question is legit.
We could all point fingers, I’m the ‘militant Black woman’, your’re the redneck incest weirdo, he’s the neutral asian guy whose really good @ math, she’s the blond chick who has no idea if its raining or not even though she’s staring out the window.
But were not gonna do that. I just wanna know how I can see if something is racist without having to be labeled as a fist-pick carrying, dashiki wearing Black person. So I’m gonna go ahead and be as Dipolmatic
about this as possible.
With that said,
Is this Racist?
Yikes. Either way, at the very least one can determine that it is wrong.
I’m certain we can think of many other landmarks we can use to honor & pay homage to our 1st Black President than with a line of former “Royal Fried Chicken” joints in Brooklyn not-so aptly-named “Obama Fried Chicken”.
And Halal food.
(Btw, usually Halal meat is usually referenced on these types of awnings. Excatly which animal is named ‘Halal’ that this meat originates from? Can I point to a Halal & ask my 6 year old cousin to tell me what a ‘Halal’ sounds like?)
(And since when did “Hot Wing’s” become possessive?)
Anywhoo, I digress.
Apparenly the owner of this restaurant, Mr. Jabbar was a lawyer & a professor @ a university in Bagdhad before he came over here to fry chicken & serve up a plethora of other healthless delicacies to the African American Community. Mr. Jabbar is an Obama enthusiast and hung pictures of Barack all around the restaurant to show his support. But the White House was not having it. They said, quote:
“The White House has a longstanding policy of disapproving uses of the president’s name and likeness for commercial purposes.”
Nonetheless, there’s still an ‘Obama Beauty Supply’ as well.
Don’t you see why this can be racist? Even a little bit?
