Protestors Demand Name Change Over Obama Chicken


obama-chickenProtesters returned to the Obama Fried Chicken eatery, demanding that the Brooklyn restaurant change its name.
New York City City Councilman Charles Barron was among the protesters today. The protesters say the name is offensive and draws on stereotypes of African-Americans.But the restaurant’s manager has said the name was chosen as a tribute to the president, and he says four out of five customers support it.

The White House says the administration disapproves of using the president’s name and likeness for commercial purposes. It has not commented directly on the issue of racial overtones in the restaurant’s name.
