NBC cares

NBC is on a PR roll. Today, Questlove, drummer for The Roots and leader of the Late Night with Jimmy Fallon band, tweeted this photo from the NBC offices.

Apparently in honor of Black History month, NBC will be serving fried chicken, collard greens, black eyed peas, cornbread and fountain soda which is no doubt grape in flavor.

NBC vice president of communications Kevin Goldman quickly replied, “The sign in the NBCU cafeteria has been removed. We apologize for anyone who was offended by it.”

It’s okay, Kevin Goldman. The only thing offensive about this is that you left out how this meal could be paid for with food stamps. I mean, unless that’s the part that was cut off at the bottom. If that’s the case, then offensive? Why would anyone think that?

What idiots. But then again, would you expect any differently from this company? I can’t believe that whoever type the sign didn’t stop and think, hey…wait a minute..is this such a good idea?

People need to grow up and stop being so sensitive. No one thinks it’s a bad idea to serve Tortillas and Re-fried Beans during Mexican Heritage Month, or Spaghetti and Garlic Bread during Italian Heritage Month. I’m getting sick of this “ultra-sensitivity” towards anything being even remotely misconstrued as racist.
