Are we in our own way?
With the current hype surrounding the Popeyes chicken sandwich, I’ve observed that the African American community is having mixed emotions about the amount of publicity it has received. Many individuals feel that we should not inflate this item and allow Popeyes to make money at the expense of the culture. They advert to how we are incapable of supporting our own due to the lack of overall support that black businesses receive from their own people. Others feel that their interest in this sandwich is harmless and they’re just trying to enjoy their food. Why should they be ridiculed for wanting to try the latest food craze? They doubt other cultures have these type of discussions when establishments such as Starbucks releases a new drink or when avocado toast became a “thing”. Do you feel that people of color are incapable of enjoying things such as this holistically? If so, why?
