Awkward Situation Alex Halliday

This video advertisement was made by Kentucky Fried Chicken of Australia (a.k.a. KFC) in 2010. In the description, the YouTube user says: "How do you survive a crowd of 'awkward' black people? According to KFC's latest advertisement a bucket of fried chicken will do the trick." Watching this video, I found the advertisement very awkward, cringing, and offensive in and of itself. This video is racist.

The social stereotype that has been negatively labelled toward African-American people is that they love chicken. More specifically, African-Americans supposedly love fried chicken. This social stereotype has caused a negative outlook toward the society and race of black individuals. Especially if a child views this and sees it as 'okay' to offer fried chicken to a black individual.
