    Mary J Blige is racist towards black people- And she shot Trayvon Martin and pinned it on that other guy- Maybe she`s trying to start Helter Skelter.

    I`d maybe be able to begin to fathom how this could possibly somehow be thought of as slightly racist if the people who wanted the chicken were at least black. As Mary J Blige is the only black person with any lines the only possible racist connotations towards black people are that all blacks are formerly successful musicians who have resorted to singing about fast food snacks to pay the bills.

    Burger King should apologize and announce that they will never again hire another black person to appear in their commercials. Also, to avoid the stigma of forcing black people to work in menial "burger-flipper" jobs, they will also stop hiring blacks to work in their restaurants.

    Any chance that will satisfy the race hustlers?

    Need to clear up a definition here:

    Black person says "I love chicken" = not racist because the black person is talking about herself.

    White person says "Black people love chicken" = racist because the white person is judging a person of another race by a stereotype.

    Mary J. Blige is the one singing about her own personal preference, so it is not racist.

    Besides, they even had a white guy order the chicken, despite the presence of black actors. Because, EVERYONE loves chicken!

    Conclusion: Not Racist.

    If it was racist, Mary J. Blige should have said something from the start. She didn`t have a problem with it apparently. Is it racist to say black people like chicken and watermelon? Or say white people like macaroni & cheese (which I just saw a Kraft commercial that cast a white family)? How about saying Asians like rice? And Hispanics like beans? In my opinion, no because I enjoy all types of ethnic cuisine and could care less about the color of ones skin. The only reason this is an issue is because the race baiters make it an issue. If start taking away their race cards and stop listening to them, poo in the world might start smelling little better.

    so,because it is a sterotype that black people like fried chicken that means a black singer can never do an ad promoting it????

    I gotta say, normally I am pointing out how white people are very racially insensitive and unwilling to accept that their point of view is only "normal" for them but in this case...black people, stfu and gtfo it.

    To anyone dumb enough to not get it, NO. Chicken is not drating racist.
