Just a note to say that it took until snoods post Page3(?) to actually understand that the concern with the advert was about black people and fried chicken. I still dont fully understand why that is a racial stereotype but can accept that it is in the US.
As an American who has lived a great deal of his life in the South, including in my childhood so that it is a part of my "unconsciousness," i still don't agree with Snood that this is the subject of a racial stereotype. Almost every Southern woman, without regard to skin color, has her personal preferred recipe for making what she will assure you is the best fried chicken, as well as biscuits and other foods both regional and national in character. White folks in the South love fried chicken, too. Harlan Sanders made his start in a Southern state, and he didn't became wealthy and successful attempting to target just black folks. He was successful because all Southerns, and, arguably, all Americans love fried chicken.
I'd say Snood was over-reacting in an incident with someone he doesn't like to begin with.
