GQ is telling us that the "Popeyes Chicken Sandwich Craze Morphed into Black Shaming"
quote:

At some basic level, there is nothing about wanting to eat Popeyes new chicken sandwich that’s different from wanting to sip a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte or dig into a Sweetgreen winter squash salad. The sandwich is the flavor of the month. It is a crunchy, fried, juicy, savory food trend that smells like a family reunion and tastes like homecoming. But while the sandwich’s hype has mouths watering from Orange County to Downtown Brooklyn, there is something unique about its popularity in black communities.

For many customers who live in predominantly white areas, the trip to Popeyes is a voyeuristic detour from Whole Foods and Au Bon Pain. It’s a different situation entirely for far too many black folks, who live in neighborhoods where Popeye’s deep-fried, heavily salted meat is one of the few options around. Studies have found that black communities are disproportionately "food swamps"—areas where healthy options like grocery stores are few and far between, and fast food restaurants like Wendy&aposs, McDonald&aposs, and Burger King dot every corner. This constricted, unhealthy food market is a direct result of racial segregation. And this racial segregation is what undergirds the sensational media hoopla around black folks and the Popeyes chicken sandwich.


quote:

Even in joy and jest, the tweets captured the contradictions of living in a redlined retail economy. Many healthier, higher-prestige chains, like Fresh & Co and Chopt, typically eschew black neighborhoods. Meanwhile, Popeyes charges into them. For decades, Popeyes, which is owned by Restaurant Brands International, has cooked “cajun” food inspired by black culture, presented racially representative marketing, and offered practical rungs to entrepreneurship


quote:

Yet while corporations have invested heavily in pumping segregated areas with pork, chicken, potato starch, and grease, these restaurants rarely incorporate many of the healthier items popular in African-American cuisine.


The article basically goes one to bash Popeye's for allegedly marketing more aggressively to poor black neighborhoods. It never clearly states how the sandwich has cause black shaming, though.

Meh. Probably a whole host of other reasons.

Liberalism is a disease for which there is no cure.

This is really blowing up in Popeyes face, exposing them for their shitty customer service over the past 40 years.

Not to mention the type of employees they hire

Damn there is a Popeyes a few miles from my house. Did not realize I lived in a “food swamp”

This article sounds way more racist than Popeyes.

hyper-focus on pathologized details of a crime can obscure the more substantial injustice. In so many cases like this, it is not some uncontrollable craze for shoes, or jackets, or chicken that precipitates black violence, but rather broader structural desperation created by racism and segregation which animate crimes.


The author’s point is that it’s the white people who cause blacks to kill each other over chicken sandwiches.

Let that sink in.

It’s fast food. My expectations of its service levels are nonexistent.

I’m sure it has nothing to do with high inventory shrinkage due to thefts, dine and dash, and that being located in an area with higher crime rates limits your potential customer base because people from other parts of town aren’t going to go into a rough neighborhood to get groceries or go to a restaurant.

What are these? Healthy cooking isn’t a strength of ours.

And the fast food
Places all sell salads ... and grocery stores sell cokes and potato chips. Neither only sells junk food or only healthy items
