I don’t need to tell you about the stereotype. We all know it. And, unlike many other common perceptions, this one is true. Plain and simple, (I dare say most) black people like chicken and watermelon. Especially when it’s fried chicken. But why? I’ve been asked this question countless times over the years and have typically just laughed it off. But the question keeps being asked. So, naturally, I’ve decided to answer it.
Black people like chicken and watermelon because it tastes good…and we have good, healthy taste buds. Plus, they’re good for you (so long as you don’t overconsume on the chicken…particularly when it’s fried…we’re still working on that).
That’s it. It’s really that simple…nothing else to say (except to let you know that I’m laughing at those of you who were anxiously waiting for this post to drop…haha, sorry, but I’m not sorry).
Until next year.
