It's a Human Thing

We've all been told black people love fried chicken. Whatever the source of that stereotype, I have a serious problem with it. Sure, it's racist; but it's also quite narrow-minded. Don't ALL people love fried chicken. There are those Veggie fools who refuse to let themselves enjoy the full potential of food, but they can be of any race. Point is, whatever the color of your skin, we all share the bucket of KFC gene (or Popeye's if you know what's up).

For the purposes of illustration, let's take a moment to look at a few international cuisines. Many of the signature or classical dishes involve fried chicken.
  1. Italian: Chicken Parmigiana. Fried chicken, marinara sauce, mozzarella cheese, delicious.
  2. French: Coq au Vin. Fried chicken, pearl onions, salt pork, mushrooms, mirepoix, red wine, an assload of free time.
  3. Chinese: Fried Chicken Wings. Fried chicken, duh.
If you belong to any of the above nationalities, it's likely that you grew up with an appreciation of fried chicken. And those are just the examples that I was able to come up with off the top of my head. While there are countless more that I'm way too lazy to brainstorm or research, those three alone make it clear: the love of fried chicken isn't a black thing, it's a human thing.

    As far as I knew Coq Au Vin isn't fried, but instead braised for a very long time. Saltimbocca is another example of a very tasty fried chicken (or veal dish). Fried chicken also immensely popular in the philipines. Buffalo wings, mmmmmmmmmm....
