President Obama, the fried chicken turmoil

A German (Deutschland) company is marketing frozen chicken strips as “Obama – fingers,” which is being met by charges of racism. It seems like to eateries in New York City (consisting of the boroughs of Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx), are following the Obama / chicken lead.

A fast food joint located in Harlem, Manhattan island, NYC has named its establishment, “Obama Fried Chicken and Pizza.” Rumor has it the “o” and “a” in Obama’s name have been covered up. Another joint in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn is named “Obama Fried Chicken.” This place was picketed by Al Sharpton and around twenty of his supporters. It must be noted both these eateries are located in black neighborhoods.
