…this news story, albeit as racist as it is, tells the story. Just one look at the anchors faces at the end of the clip proves that for a fact.
All I know is that the motive behind this story wasn’t the fact that Popeyes ran out of chicken, if you know what I mean. 2 minutes and some change on a story about running out of chicken? They don’t even dedicate that amount of time in a newscast to local homicides. I’m just saying…
The story should have been about why people have to resort to eating Popeyes chicken in the first place. Perhaps a little investigative reporting on what it costs at the grocery store to make the same meal. I’d have much rather that have been reported than some news producer or assignment editor’s prejudice against Blacks being played on a local newscast in the disguise of journalism.
