Oh My: NBC Celebrates Black History Month By Serving Fried Chicken

I assume watermelon is on the dessert menu. You have to figure this will earn NBC a special "Worst People in the World" from Keith Uberdork.
So who at NBC thought it would be a good idea for the special today to be, among other things, fried chicken, “in honor of Black History Month”?

Because, spoiler alert – it wasn’t a good idea at all. And now NBCU employee Questlove is bringing it to the attention of his 1 million plus Twitter followers.
Could you imagine the media meltdown if Fox did something so stupid?

Prediction: Rush Limbaugh will mention this tomorrow and NBC will call him racist for mentioning Black History Month and fried chicken in the same breath.
