Whole Foods Use President Obama to Sell Chickens [#BIGDUMMYFILES]

The Whole Foods supermarket in NYC’s Upper West Side Whole Foods has raised quite a few eyebrows after they used a caricature of President Obama — who has a chain of fried chicken restaurants named after him — to advertise an upcoming sale on whole organic chicken. Some residents called the ad racist. Whole Foods said they meant no disrespect and took down the sign.

Shout out to WNBC for actually finding some black people on the streets who could actually articulate. I don’t really think this is racist its just what racism has bred over time. I really don’t think whole foods meant any harm with this ad, they are just trying to move chickens. The underlying racism that exist in today’s world leaves no room for anything like this, I’m sure they would just like to apologize and sell their chickens. This could’ve all been avoided if more African Americans were involved in marketing products.
