WTF?? you should be baned for making such a racist comment.
Yeah, that was pretty racist.
Could someone explain this to me, please? I don't see why it was racist, largely because I don't get the joke. What's KFC got to do with either racism or Bernie Mac?
KFC has nothing to do with Bernie Mac.
It's racist because "kary" is implying that because Bernie is of African American decent, his favorite food must automatically be KFC.
It's a stereotypical misconception that most African Americans love KFC and other fried fatty foods. "Kary"'s comment was intentionally inflamatory and in no way contributed to any sort of intelligent discussion.
Actually to be really racist, KFC is not the African American choice... Now if he would have said throw him a bucket of Churches Chicken, or Popeyes then i could see it.. but not KFC..
Plus I own this shirt, and all my African American friends laugh every time they see it..

I think White people get overly concerned about their comments being racist versus what ethnic people will actually consider racist..
besides most of the racism i have encountered was ethnic on White..and not Vice Versa..
And if you think about it..white people in America are not the majority, from mexico downward its almost totally hispanic, Latino, or whatever..
the US is now only 50% white or caucasian, the rest 50% ethnic, and Canada is 90% white the rest 10% ethnic.. so down south has us beat by a long shot..
Throwing a bucket of KFC is not racist because Bernie Mac has stated serveral Hundred times in interviews and in his stand up comedy that he loves KFC..
Besides I'm italian, we ruled the known world for over a thousand years as Romans,we don't descriminate, we hate all races equally.. smile...
