My People, My People

One of the local television stations in South Louisiana actually aired an interview with a woman of color from New Orleans.

The interviewer was a woman from a Boston affiliate, so she asked the interviewee how such total and complete devastation of the churches in the area had affected their lives.

The woman replied," I don't know about all those other peoples but we gets our chicken from Popeye's".

The look on the interviewer's face was priceless.

Are we really all that surprised the media is famous for putting the most ignorant black face on national news so it doesn't strike me as odd or sad, just done and tired.

I haven't had Church's chicken so I can't speak on that.

But on a serious note, it's been said that when Oprah was a news anchor/reporter in Baltimore, she did her best to avoid showing neighborhood Blacks in a bad light. For example, she would tell women to "take the curlers out" before she would interview them on camera.
