Popeyes Chicken

Yesterday, while driving through northeast Atlanta (DeKalb County), I saw a plethora of Popeyes restaurants, all packed with fried chicken connoisseurs waiting to taste the new crispy chicken sandwiches. Some people are not happy with Popeyes' success.

There is a movement to discredit and slander Popeyes' good name, as some on Black Twitter accused the "white corporation" of launching a viral marketing campaign that targeted Black people in poor neighborhoods.

In response to the backlash, Popeyes asked influential Blacks such as DJ Jermaine Dupri and rap mogul T.I. to step in and clear the air.

"Just in case you didn't know #Atlanta you ARE supporting Black Business when you get that Spicy Chicken Sandwich from @PopeyesChicken," reads a meme reposted by JD and T.I.

They want you to know that baseball legend Hank Aaron, who resides in Southwest Atlanta, owns 27 Popeyes restaurant franchises around the Greater Atlanta area. And Mack Wilbourn, who is a person of color, owns the #1 and #2 Popeyes franchises in the world.

T.I. captioned his post: "One time for the OGs. #UsorElse."

So when you stand in line to taste the crispy fried chicken sandwiches that all of Twitter is buzzing about, rest assured that you are supporting Black businesses.

  • Guess Who

    I am so sick of hearing about this damn sammich, folks comparing it to chik-fil-a's sammich...the memes about this damn sammich on fb.

    Is it that serious?

  • ………

    Black people and chicken smh the myth became truthbuster

  • Wreckognize Game

    People are fighting in Popeyes about jumping the line. Then at the Lafayette, LA workers got fired (because they recorded) them adding extra pepper in the sauce and putting other unidentified liquid on the sandwiches.

  • Hazel

    Would love to support. BUT, most Popeyes are in the hood.....not trying to get carjacked in the drive thru????

  • JazzyBossyJen

    That’s all gravy but it’s the ignorant and barbaric images being shown over a dang sandwich is what’s disturbing!

  • lovelygamour

    I hope all these restaurant owners give there employees a bonus for being overworked at a maybe minimum wage job. doing a weeks worth of business in a day calls for a bonus. im not talking about a free meal. cold hard cash. hopefully, they called in more workers to help.

    im appalled at how many jerks took pictures of the workers. did the boring life picture takers pay the workers to get a picture. just exploitative.

  • MsSapphire9800

    Lawd...we still on the chicken sandwich craze....I am curious...was certain neighborhoods target?

    If we only spent this much energy on our own marketing and dollars.....how far we would be.

  • Coffee1st

    I'm over it. This country worries me.... we hop on a fruitless bandwagon and ride it till the wheels fall off. Not so much speaking of those buying the sandwich, but tell me again why this is newsworthy????
    I, too, attempted to purchase a Popeye's chicken sandwich, but sitting in that line was a hard no for me.
    And furthermore, supporting black business is not the end all. We should support our own and our own should reciprocate that support back into the needs of the community. I don't see any mention of that.

  • WhoKnew

    I've heard Popeye's new chicken sammich is good but it still can't touch Chick Fila.

    Every since I started following celebrities on Instagram I've noticed one thing, they are just like you and me which means they fall for the okie dok like everyone else.

    Have you tasted it? I tried but the lines were way too long. And the crazy thing is I've heard that some Popeyes kept people waiting in line for an hour when they knew they were already out of chicken. SMDH.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    It is better than Chick Fil A...I got one way before Black Twitter got a hold of it...the meat in the sandwich is much more and I like the crispness of the chicken and the sauce...but aint no way Im standing in line with all these crazy negros to get another one...

  • Fire & Ice

    I can't take either one of them serious. I need another source ?

  • Sebastian Johnson

    Black folks c'mon smh!

  • Eric B

    I live in Montgomery, AL. I tried this sandwich at least about two months ago prior to it going viral on social media. This sudden fascination only illustrates the influence that social media can and does wield. There was a violent incident at a local Popeyes over the weekend, allegedly over this sandwich. "Black people fighting over chicken". This is the most stereotypical BS I've seen in a while. Our behavior, at times, is embarrassing.

  • AveIvy

    Won't touch Popeyes because of their business model and poor customer service. Chick-fil-A will make sure your food is ordered properly and served in a timely manner. Last week was the last time I will ever step foot in a Popeyes and it is ridiculous for them to make their customers wait more than 15 mins for a chicken sandwich.

  • Wish I was on another planet

    I went to 3 Popeye trying to get one those sandwiches line was in the street drove off and took my butt to chick fil la

  • Starburst

    I'm sorry maybe I'm in the minority but I do not like Popeyes chicken. I tried it years ago and did not like it at all. Now the cajun turkey I get from Popeyes forThanksgiving is tasty. But that chicken as I remember was nasty.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    And not ounce of their opinions influences me. THE P.O.S. sandwich was a disaster in some locations. I FOR ONE DIDN'T EVEN KNOW ABOUT IT. I SAW NO HYPE PROMOTIONS HERE IN D.C. I make a GREAT CHICKEN SANDWICH ON A BRIOCHE BUN at home. .SO BYE!

  • Fire & Ice

    I was talking to my Mr. about this on Saturday. These owners are making a killing! I hope these employees are rewared for such hard work. They have to be doing three times the load as before.

  • Carrington

    if I were a celebrity, I wouldn't give ANY corporation free pub. With the voices T.I. and JD have, I'd be using my powers for good and helping people whose lives could change forever because of ONE tweet... I'd be tweeting out pictures from a dope black artist who is trying to get into the game... putting a link to a fly a$$ed un-signed youtube artist... forwarding memes from a funny a$$ed person I follow on instagram.

    I would NEVER be like Tyler Perry and Spike Lee by re-hiring the same black folk over and over and over and over again - I'd be making black stars like I was manufacturing them MFs. Every film, I'd hire my principle/marquee celebrity and hire an unknown QUALIFIED actor or actress to play the supporting role and then send that MF or MFkette out into the world to GET IT... and do the same thing with my next flick. I'd put new black folk on the scene like a puppy mill.

    Tyler still hiring himself and David and Tamela Mann and Cassie Davis and the dude who played the barber on House of Payne over and over and over again.

    Spike Lee keeps casting himself and his sister and Danny Aiello and Giancarlo Esposito and John Turturro for every single film. Why can't you just DIRECT and give that role that you played yourself to an actor who could use the work?

    I guess that's why I'll never be - I would be too busy trying to make sure everybody gets some.

  • xxxgracious

    It's pretty sad when a police officer has to direct traffic off a major highway because people are blocking the road to get to popeyes. Took me an extra 10 mins to get home today smfh and that was at 1030am. I can only imagine what it's like now that its lunch time.

  • Phillybruh

    The entire casts of how to get away with a shonda rhimes show seems to have been in a few of Tylers Productions

  • xxxgracious

    I read somewhere that this sandwich was a distraction from the Amazon being on fire ??

  • KcoolMuziq

    it's easier to work with someone that's familiar to get the job done quickly with a loyal following.

  • Fire & Ice

    Thats too much like right

  • WhoKnew

    "Chick-fil-A will make sure your food is ordered properly and served in a timely manner."
    _____________________________________________

    So true. Chick-fil-A's customer service is outstanding. In all the years they have been opened it has never waivered. And I agree it is ridiculous to make customers wait longer than 15 minutes.

  • Carrington

    Trust me, ain't nobody following Cassie Davis and Tamala Mann, the dude who played the barber and, the lady that plays the little old lady on that restaurant sitcom. That, I can assure you. Directors hire new actors for every single film but, for Tyler Perry - it's just easier to use the same people? The same man who goes around talking about how Hollywood ain't hiring black folk is too lazy to HIRE some black folk?!? Because it's easier to just use the same ones?

  • Carla

    I wonder if Jermaine Dupri has tried one of the sandwiches. He's supposedly been vegan the past 12 or so years.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    It really did, and where they getting all that dayum chicken. Whos lab was the meat produced in!

  • Carrington

    Well, of course the light skinned pretty dude has been in several Tyler shows... but, isn't that my point?

  • Phillybruh

    Huck and annalese and I can't remember her name but the dark skin one has been in one.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Please STOP! Tyler has hired even well known actors that weren't getting any work that other directors refused to put in their films Like Taraji Henson,Cicely Tyson, & Mary j Blige to name a few. That are NOW working regularly because of his exposure.

    People need to STOP looking for a reason to put black successful people down in the industry. I'm so sick of people picking on Tyler(whom I had a chance to work for) . He needs to be commended for ALL the black people he employs in front of and behind the camera. No matter who it is.

  • Bushbabe
  • Scromes1212

    Double the staff and pay them more. Nothing wrong with having a successful product. But a unsafe, under payed work invornment shouldn't be accepted.

  • Bonita

    I don't eat fried food anymore. But when I did, I remember Popeyes being real greasy. I'm sure nothing has changed.

  • Wreckognize Game

    I’ve always wondered if TP was hiring those same actors because he watched Spike do it.

  • Soon2BWife

    I will be happy when blacks stop cooning on the internet over these processed chicken sandwiches. We get it, it is good but Jesus enough already. https://media3.giphy.com/media/yoJC2PohbZsHR5pDbi/giphy-downsized-medium.gif

  • Bonita

    Nah, these corporations pay them to use their celebrity to influence the masses to fall for the okie doke.

  • Soon2BWife

    Kid: Can we get a Popyes chicken sandwich?
    You: We got chicken sanwiches at home.

    LOL! I heard that! It is still a processed chicken sandwich and I don't get the hype.

  • Carrington

    What you're NOT going to do is tell me that I can't have an opinion on Tyler Perry - that's what's not gonna happen. I don't care if you had a chance to work with St. Peter and got the hook-up... if he's letting the same people in the gates - I've got something to say.

    Who TF is "picking on Tyler" that's a grown a$$ed man. I've said SEVERAL times that I'm proud of his success and what he's achieved - but this is the ONE area (besides the fact that he won't let anyone help him create his content) where I have an issue.

    So, he hired some out of work actors - does that change the fact that Tamala Mann and Cassie Davis are written into EVERY show? If they had the "following" you've convinced yourself they have and that's his justification (that, or he's lazy cause ya said both).. then point me to the David Mann, Tamala Mann, Cassie Davis, Palmer Williams, Patrice Lovely films they've done without Tyler Perry...

    Hollywood is about MONEY - if you have a following, they're coming. Point to the justification behind the fact that they've ONLY worked for Tyler...

  • Soon2BWife

    It is so embarrassing and shameful! The one by me has had a none stop line. The thing is all of the restaurants are sold out so not sure what folks are buying at this point.

  • Bonita

    When I used to eat fried food, I remember Popeyes employing the most ratchet, rude, and dusty looking customer service-less Black folks they could find. Based upon your comment, it sounds like nothing has changed.

  • Myopinion

    Popeyes fry their chicken in lard

  • Renee26

    Who cares... People don't look up the resturant owners for places before they stop for a bite.

    Why people mad about other people's choices in food anyway. McDonald's serves billions daily and have minority franchise owners as well.

    The main thing that people should take from all of this is the power of the black influence. When we stick together on real issues things can change.

    Use this example of black marketing as motivation to do something meaningful and productive.

  • Soon2BWife

    That time I told the cashier to come around the counter and tell me how she felt (paraphrasing to provide the clean version) was my last time stepping foot in there. I had to apologize to the rest of the customers because I went there. It was funny because they all had my back. One lady told her you can't talk to people like that and asked her what was wrong with her!

  • Renee26

    The memes are funny

  • Carrington

    Right... even when you write a role and play it yourself - why not write that role and give it to a black man? I understand why he would need to be Madea - but why is he playing the attorney nephew too? That's a role that could've gone to a black man...

    Why does EVERY one of your shows have young people PRETENDING to be old people - why can't you hire an older actor to play an older character?

    Tamala Mann; young woman playing an old woman
    David Mann (although he's the one exception because he's pretty good) young dude playing an old dude.
    Cassie Davis; young woman playing an old woman
    Patrice Lovely: young woman playing an old woman
    Palmer Williams; young man playing an old man
    Tony Vaughn; young man playing an old man
    LaVan Davis; young man playing an old man
    I ain't saying the brother can't cast who he wants, but it makes ME side eye.

  • Carrington

    Nothin. Not a damn thing. If it's unsafe to fry chicken, you need to be sweeping. LOL

    People kill me wanting minimum wage people doing MINIMAL wage jobs to make top wages... gat damn it, if you on fries, you're SUPPOSED to make $8 - that's incentive to take your a$$ to school. Burger King isn't SUPPOSED to be a career. It's for high school students who move on and go off to college and then the next set of high schoolers take over.

    If I'm an officer manager who started off as a receptionist at a dentist office making $7.00 seven years ago, and now I've worked my way up to $16.18 per hour... why TF should the MF who ain't doing $hit but putting the lettuces and (not enough) special sauce on my already PRE-MADE filet o' fish come in the door making ONE dollar less than me?!?

    “ Point to the justification behind the fact that they've ONLY worked for Tyler.”

    Because they can that’s why. Tamala & David use to be part of Kirk Franklin’s The Family group and Tamala won a Grammy for her hugely successful MEGA hit “Take Me To The King”. So they both have had success with and without Tyler.

    I’m done I’ve proved my point.
    Goodbye!

    I and many of my family & friends are on a health kick. I can't eat that food anymore. I have diabetes and I'm watching every calorie and carb. I don't know why black franchisees still want to push high caloric food on black people.

    KFC turned into Popeyes and let me tell you...They gave away so much free chicken that it closed down for good. All Blacks was up in there running the store. I was in the Army...It was funny...They stole almost everything one day....And they closed it down....

    Inventor Of Fraudulent Temperature ‘Hockey Stick’ Is Humiliated In Canadian Court
    Michael Mann is an unrepentant and belligerent Technocrat who deceived the whole world with his so-called ‘hockey stick’ temperature model. His humiliation in a Canadian court should be a fatal blow to the entire climate change scam. Defying a judges direct order, Mann has refused to provide his data for public scrutiny. ? TN Editor

  • Michelle Peele

    Went to Popeyes last week (not to get the sandwich but some Tenders). The first one had closed the dining room cause not enough folk showed up for work. The drive thru was almost spilling into the street. The second Popeyes had a long line that dwindled after they announced they were out of the sandwich. One guy claims to have paid $10 for a sandwich he bought off someone in the parking lot. Then came in the dining room and said he'd pay $15 if someone could get him another one. #TheNewCrack

    A bitter and embarrassing defeat for the self-styled ‘Nobel Prize winner’ who acted as if he was the epitome of virtue, this outcome shames not only Michael Mann, but puts the climate science community in crisis. Many hundreds of peer-reviewed papers cite Mann’s work, which is now effectively junked. Despite having deep-pocketed backers willing and able to feed his ego as a publicity-seeking mouthpiece against skeptics, Mann’s credibility as a champion of environmentalism is in tatters.

    But it gets worse for the litigious Penn State professor. Close behind Dr Ball is celebrated writer Mark Steyn. Steyn also defends himself against another one of Mann’s SLAPP suits – this time in Washington DC. Steyn boldly claims Mann “has perverted the norms of science on an industrial scale.” Esteemed American climate scientist, Dr Judith Curry, has submitted to the court an Amicus Curiae legal brief exposing Mann. The world can now see that his six-year legal gambit to silence his most effective critics and chill scientific debate has spectacularly backfired.

    But at a time of much clamor about ‘fake news,’ it seems climate scare stories will have a new angle now that the United States has officially stepped back from the Paris Climate Treaty. President Trump was elected on a mandate to weed out climate fraud so his supporters will point to this legal outcome as vindication for a full purge. It makes a mockery of statements made by Mann last February when PSI’s Hans Schreuder and John O’Sullivan publicly backed their colleague, Dr Ball and endorsed the revelations in his book. Mann reacted by moaning:

  • AveIvy

    Yes it is outstanding and Chick-fil-A's employees will do it with a smile. I suspect the core of their training is applying proper customer service. Popeyes has had over a week and a half to find an easy solution to this problem. It's simple supply & demand but there are still reports of long lines and pissed off customers. Then they feed the media stories about black people fighting over chicken. SMDH. It's not the chicken that has people pissed off, it's the fact that they've paid for a sandwich and waited damn near an hour for it. No one wants to be taken advantage of. Perhaps they thought that it would create even more of a demand. Wrong! No one is going to continue waiting for a simple ass chicken sandwich. They're crazy! And not only am I not waiting in long lines, I've decided to eliminate Popeyes entirely for my personal take-out menus. Fuck 'em! They're exploiting the black community and running all the way to the bank.

  • oshh16

    This is ridiculous. That chicken sandwich was once apart of Popeye's menu when I was in high school and that is over ten years ago! It was actually a combo meal. I don't see what the big deal is. Popeye's has been a staple in the black community for as long as I can remember! I grew up in the projects, if you were broke, you ate Churchs, if you were hood rich, you ate Popeyes!

    Why do we need TIP and JD to speak out? All of these saviors in our community but nobody being saved! I'm over it!

  • Carrington

    Exactly. Consumerism breeds capitalism. If the minimum wage goes up to $15 per hour... these apartment complexes gonna want some of that. The cell phone company is going to want some of it, Wonder Bread is going to want some of it... if my company has to give me another $7 raise, they're going to charge YOU, the consumer, to make up for that extra money... so the inflation rate will make everything even worse.

  • Scromes1212

    So if business picks up double and now I'm doing double the work I did before I shouldn't get a raise? You got the same amount of workers and they doing double the work and your business making double the money but I still get 7.50!? Don't ever become a union rep lol

    Where? My daddy owned night clubs my entire life and he repeatedly corrected me, "I'm not in the night club business - I'm in the alcohol business." I worked for him for years and he sold more cognac than gins, wines, liquers, or bourbons. When was cognac dying?
    I can't speak directly to the HENNESSEY brand, but giving credit for saving all of COGNAC to rap music is a huge stretch.

  • Dasright

    More important than the calories are the sodium and cholesterol in our food. Some good food, such as almonds, are higher in fat and calories but they are so good for you.
    My sister has been taking BP pills since she was about 25 and didn't understand why. I went to her house and went through all of her food. She was mind boggled seeing how much sodium was in some of her favorite foods. We went to a restaurant yesterday and now they put the nutritional info on the menu; one meal had 4,060 mg of sodium ?? One damn meal. It would take me 5 days to reach that. We need to do better.

  • Renee26

    Apparently they're working at the same pace as before with hour long waits and 15 min prep time after taking orders.

    You're making a big fuss about nothing ?

    Well you said Assistant Managers not even supposed to be there bc it's not a career. Who is supposed to tend the store if nobody made a career out of it?

  • Nophace

    I'm sure none of those black business owners want them clowns out there acting like they ni99ers and contributing to the black ppl and chicken stereotype!

  • Carrington

    Now, they DID change Cristal sales... and almost destroyed the brand by the time they were done because rich white folk were buying Cris for years... when rappers started talking about it, regular folk were buying it in the clubs... but there was a cost to the brand. Rich folk want exclusive. They don't want to be drinking the same $hit that they're drinking in any club in the hood, so they stopped buying and the company understood that we are fickle and only as loyal as the next hottest thing so, once they lost their core customer of 50 years and the latest, hottest thing for rappers came out, they were in danger of losing EVERYTHING... so, they had to rebrand.

  • Oretta Grace Smith

    Well I just bought My chicken at Walmart. Homemade chicken sandwich, No line,

  • Facts and Receipts

    They made $20 million in a week or two off these sandwiches. I don't think it's a huge fuss for them to slide their workers some bonus money. Maybe not long term no. But a production bonus for sure. No?

    What if they stand in the voting line WHILE eating their sammich? Win-Win.

  • Scromes1212

    How is it the same pace and the company is making more money? To make more money you have to be selling more products at a faster pace, correct? That's how they keep from paying more smh people letting them get away with flawed logic. And this will all get lost cause of these foolish distractions smh I shouldn't make a fuss about getting paid 7.25 a hour at one of the busiest restaurants in America lol ok

    I think they are 450-480 calories... that is like 5k to me!
    I choose to eat something with less fat and less sodium.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Great idea! But will he have to pick them all up and then take them to Popeyes after they vote?

  • Karen Brady

    Please don't @ me with "that's all restaurants!" but I can imagine the fervor and fury with which they are making these sandwiches.. dropping buns and pickles all on the floor, chicken and people's fingers getting stepped on in the chaos.. then they pick it all up and slap it together... chile….PANDEMONIUM!!! :-)

  • Lady_Elle

    Funny... I was about to comment on how most of those in line would not stand in line to vote.

    I can’t eat it because of that , so I’ll just keep looking at the picture of the chicken sandwich lol

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Hmm. Now that would be a good idea to increase voter turnout. A coupon for a free chicken sandwich for everybody who turns out to the polls. You know nigros would be lined up around the block starting at 5am ?

    Open post: Prince Andrew says it was a mistake and an error to spend time with Jeffrey Epstein. I wonder how that conversation went with him and his mum the Queen.

    Oh no she didn't. Yeah I was just looking at some yesterday at WF. Glad I left it right there. What would even possess... never mind.

  • Just Me

    I tasted a small piece of that sandwich well over a month ago. It has a funny taste much like popeyes chicken. For some reason their food taste like they don’t change their grease. Another thing I support businesses based on what I like, not because they are owned by a certain group of people.?????

    THIS!!!!!!! Smh.

    Gone Gurl! Sounds like you've gone from Kmart to Macy's!! I aint mad atcha.

  • Bree

    That's what hurts me. To see us fighting over a $4 sandwich when you can hit up your local grocery store and purchase chicken breasts and make your own. I'm disappointed that we will fight over something that isn't beneficial to us or our bodies. Not saying I haven't had a chicken sandwich from Popeyes. I eat out for leisure not because of the trends. That sandwich has been apart of Popeyes for years.

  • Bree

    Yes, honey! God is good. Before I got hitched I started upgrading like crazy. I still sneak into Dollar Tree once a week though! Haha!

  • Dontgetdraggedputa??

    ??????

  • Dasright

    Please do. They sneak it in there too. We don't need a lot of sodium for our food to taste good. Use herbs to season your food. Smoked paprika is amazing, so is cumin, coriander, cilantro, curry, lemon juice, and turmeric.

  • Bree

    I stopped eating at a lot of fast food restaurants. I do have my chik-fil-a every now and then but it's not a weekly or monthly thing for me. I make most of my own food from scratch now and I'm careful about what I eat.

Just bcas a white face isnt upfront for the owner doesnt mean a black person is not behind the scene collecting the green. They got that ole skool quiet money they compete with nobody but themselves n dont need to call a news conference everytime they get a deal.

    If people took the time to research the amount of chickens that are owned by the USA and the amount of chicken being sold just doesn’t add up.

    Girl, same! When I used to I would notice how my body would react and how I would feel, both mentally and physically. This is the same reason I won't let my son eat no damn McDonalds.

  • leapyearpisces

    I know imma get stoned, but I preferred church's over popeyes. Popeyes chicken is too damn meaty like they make their chickens work out or something, especially the tenders. I don't like the texture. That can't be real chicken, how they have that pull apart chicken thing? That is not found in nature??? And that chicken sandwich looks too damn meaty as well. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8f470b805c5f1937fb58f0406bbbea97874186704bbf25bfaf374d740266096a.jpg

    It’s not a problem to me where ppl spend their money. I spend my money where I LIKE, not because of the race of a person. If the business I’m looking for is owned by black ppl it’s all good. ????? To each it’s on. It’s a none issue here.

  • Just Me

    That sandwich is thick and huge. It’s taste just like their chicken, it a funny taste to me. I usually ear chicken out from this local place where I live called Gus’s Chicken. It’s is very good & not too bulky. lol

    Popeyes where I leave is usually a hot mess in general but yesterday I couldn’t believe the line for the drive thru, it had to be at least 30 cars in line!

    Some people will fall for anything, scary!

  • Dem Moore

    I just dont understand what black business and fired chicken have to do with one another. I live in a predominantly white area of town and the lines were just as packed for that basic sandwich Wendy's was selling 10 years ago....I swear some people act like they never had shiiii....

    Oh and one other thing, I wish people would stop acting like one this culture eats chicken. I don’t think I’m wrong here but I believe Chick-fil-A and kfc are the highest grossing restaurants. Most of the dishes when out to eat are ordered with chicken more than a filet. The coonhounds though are a terrible insult to all who fought and died for the right to be accepted and respected.

    legend Hank Aaron, who resides in Southwest Atlanta, owns 27 Popeyes restaurant franchises around the Greater Atlanta area. And Mack Wilbourn, who is a person of color, owns the #1 and #2 Popeyes franchises in the world.
    —————————————————————

    But what about the thousands of Popeyes that are not in Atlanta? They’re not black owned. So go crazy with GMO chicken in Atlanta because some are owned by blacks who are probably married white.

    I still have not tried it. It’s sold out everywhere. There’s a classic chicken sandwich and a SPICY chicken sandwich, the spicy one is the newest one. So it’s the same sandwich but just spicy. Seriously everything’s good when it’s spicy. The most bland thing will taste good with hot spices.

    Thank you for bringing up the obvious. Black parents be lining up for chicken sandwiches games phones sneakers and running like hell away from their children’s school.
    People be out there lying talking about everything it’s OK if you want to know how a culture is doing look at the children and their education levels.

    I do! I just have to sneak and make time to go. My hub bear likes his quality time when I'm not running our businesses or making boss moves.

    Ummm did the sandwich get released in different markets at different times? I had one in Houston a few months ago and it made my stomach hurt. So ummm...yeah...not understanding the hype all of sudden.

  • LoveChild

    I noticed you mentioned husband. The most successful black kids I know have a mother and a father in the home. And they also homeschool the mom is stay at home with an online business.

    What happened is these females out here breeding and don’t know shit about parenting. Take a train after school and see how much attention the single mothers are paying to their children they ignore them.

    The mother is on the phone the child is being neglected or the child is playing a game there is no loving interaction. I feel sorry for this generation of black kids they’re getting less love and less parental attention.

    I come for black males and I also come for black females because they’re the ones raising the kids mainly half assed.

    Or mean to the kids and the kids are scared, some of these single mothers treat their kids in public like their slaves!!

  • LoveChild

    Anytime you critique black people sone fool comes up and calls you a white person. That’s black male privilege you’re not supposed to talk about all these black males killing each other.

    The truth is black wealth is inherited through marriage less marriage less inherited Black wealth that is a pure fact. Look at all the single mothers doing go fund me for basic life necessities or for funerals. No marriage no money.

    Which is why white females are hunting wealthy black males to marry like the predator they want that inherited wealth for their white side of the family I can’t blame them.

  • Vonda K

    Lol???
    I actually told a few parents if they put energy toward school they be so far ahead of the game. Whew chile

  • LoveChild

    I’m right there with you. We had some organic chickens and made our own!!

  • the guest

    I’m sorry.

  • Vonda K

    They act like their children are an annoyance!
    I’ve taught parenting classes to young parents ages 13-21 yrs. We refer to this as Lap Time. While bus, driving or store use this to expand their vocabularies, explain things or just be dialed into the babies. But most are practicing to be instagram/IG models. Whew

  • the guest

    Truth.

  • Vonda K

    Thank you.
    It’s pathetic.
    But let them get mad they rush to the school to curse out the teacher or principal.

  • Bree

    Oh yes! My husband and I take care of business over here. He is fully aware, and this is before we met how I am concerning certain situations. I don't play that mess. We have discussed our children's educational plans before we even have them, the same way we discussed our lives before we moved in together. We have our differences but my husband knows I take care of our household very well. He calls me the boss. I was doing this before he came along. We want our children's education to be a priority in our home because I was very gifted in school and so was my husband, but no one picked up on that while we were in school. I was always bored with school, couldn't wait to graduate. My husband and I have several businesses but we are accumulating enough money so that we don't have to work so hard when our babies come. Prayers to God. I want to homeschool but my husband wants them to go to regular school. I told him we will follow his lead on this one. The administration at the school will know myself and my husband. He is really big on learning.

    Pipeline trip prison is real.

  • LoveChild

    Yeah it’s a wrap. They want to be thots or hoes and they think it’s cute. Obese with belly rolls in the club trying to relive their teenage years.

    Black single mothers definitely need parenting classes.

    They know not to act crazy around me because I defend children.

    Instagram models are just escorts video cam sex work everybody knows that they are hoes.

  • Vonda K

    Thank you.
    I organized other parents for coffee chats and we would be a presence at school. Actually, most schools really appreciate helicopter parents??

    Didn’t the late Bishop tell you’ll Popeye’s was bad for you....?now here we go in droves lining up for that grease. I saw the line for the drive thru today wrapped around twice smh.

  • Bree

    Thank you also for all that you do. Although I don't work in a classroom, education is very rewarding.

  • LoveChild

    Oh yeah I see them all over social media And that’s being an abusive mother because the children are sexualized as well.

    That’s why black women have to stop breeding young so they can sow their wild oats go out and be a hoe do things experiment without damaging your children.

  • hottlanta

    Really well l wish u will tell the married folks in my family 2 stop trying 2 borrow money from this single woman with 2 kids. Then when l say they get mad.

  • Kimberly King

    I've seen and heard too many negative reviews on Juvia's Place customer service. And that's the one thing I'm big on. I no longer use Camille Rose products due to her trashy ass customer service. I had to go through my bank to get a refund, because they never answered the email I sent about damaged products. I attached plenty of photos, and still no answer.

  • INDUSTRY GURU

    2,000 of them your correct.Of the 2,000 Popeyes when you look at the whole piture a very small percentage of the 2,000 Stores are Black owned.

    The Brand Headquaters that owns Popeyes is a Canadian Company, Restaurant Brands International. Pitures and names posted below of the Executives.

    Not ONE Black C-Suite Executive, Restaurant Brands International owns Burger King , and Tim Hortons . The people who make the Strategic Decsions about everything at the top are white. Majority of their customers are Black.

    So its safe to say they are eating good off us with 32 Billion in sales.

    They have black mid level managers I have Frat Brother thats a Regional Manager, but we remain the minority in leadership by far and completely blocked out the very top.

  • LoveChild

    You got to get your boundaries up. Let them stay mad. Just say no and change the subject or end the conversation.

    And you know you are the exception not the rule.

    The brokest people I know are single mothers. The black couples with the most wealth are married.

    But everybody expects black women single mothers or married to help them out with money because black women carry the community.

  • PYT

    Damn shame. Offer them Popey's sandwhiches, that'll lure them to the meetings.

    Some of the brokest people l know r black men. They have no home or car n carry a kroger sack with them going from house 2 house trying 2 b the neighborhood d because he knows when she is tired of his low d n wallet he gots to go n his azz is over 40. A lot of single moms l know got homes cars travel n kids in college while married couple kids r drop out or the school is the parents 2nd home. U forget to mention that Wendy williams was a single mom while married while lela rochen is a single mom while married. The list goes on n on. Stop acting like marriage is the holy grail to a woman happiness when they r going thru hell to stay there.

  • 2gr8ful

    We are helicopter parents but try our best to not to annoy the teachers but make it clear that we are involved parents. We let the teachers know we are there to assist them facilitating success for our kids. It’s a partnership. Nowadays parents want to be their kids “friends”. I have enough friends you are the child and your job is to go to school and learn with books and pencils.

  • Facts and Receipts

    Most fast food places have at least 2- 3 location managers per store. If they sell breakfast it's a breakfast manager. A mid shift manager. A closing manager. They report into a district manager. Shift leaders and assistant managers help help provide relief for PTO/regularly sked days off for the store managers and rotate. So no. Not just 1 manager

  • LoveChild

    I understand you’re triggered cuz you’re a single mother.
    I can’t agree with anything you say except about black males.

    Obviously you are anti-marriage.
    And I would really like to see this fantasy world where single mothers are so fly and married couples are failing where is that exactly?

    Hass to be down south because it sure as hell ain’t here in California?????

    The thing about broke black males is they aren’t taking care of their kids so they can surf being broke.

    Broke black males are highly supported by everybody they usually have somebody making him a plate giving him sex and given him a sofa to sleep on.

    Whereas the broke single mother who is raising a broke black males fatherless children is scorned and made fun of for making poor mistakes. Nothing but single mother panhandling on Facebook. I saw one asking for her followers to donate $100 to pay some essential bill.

    It’s better to be broke solo then being a broke parent which is how most of these black males are getting by because they’re not raising your kids the women are.

    I can only assume by your name you’re in Atlanta well I’m out here in California it’s a whole different lifestyle. Out here single mothers have to work much harder and the married black couples are thriving and winning.

    Eeek, the sodium! I love almonds. They are good for controlling blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol. My go to breakfast is steel cut oatmeal topped with sliced almonds, blueberries and a banana. It is so heavy that you can just have two meals a day.

  • Dun Dilly

    Killt any chicken sandwich I might have slipped up and ate from Pops.

  • hottlanta

    Wealthy Camille been married for over 40 years n spending her golden years alone bcas her husband turned their home into a sex crime scene n drugged women. Poor b smith 2 b married over 20 years get sick n husband tucks her in only to go into another room n tuck in his mistress. Married n wealthy must b nice. I forget about patti labelle who divorced her husband after 32 years n lala husband was on a yacht with another one instead of her on her birthday. Makes u wanna go hmmmm??

  • the guest

    The Post-racism America is more shrewd than the racist America.

    My god, has racism become insidious.

    Whether black owned or white owned, lets not front like Popeyes doesn't contribute to the deadly pandemic of obesity in lower income black communities. Those chicken sandwiches are what 5,000 calories?

  • LoveChild

    Every single one of those women you mentioned including the one who is possibly being elder abused has a better standard of life than you do.

    Again, I understand you were triggered as a single mother and are of the anti-marriage black female brigade??

    Frankly though many single mothers are selfish as hell because they rarely talk about the children but that’s another conversation right.

    That’s why I have women friends of different races. Most black females who are single mothers are anti-marriage and love to bring up bad marriages.

    The white Asian Hispanic and Indian females live the protected life because somebody inherited some money insurance or property at the very least some legal uncles cousins etc. that help much more support than the basic black female single mother.

    Who is actually struggling raising the children alone but lying about it.

    That’s all I have for you in this conversation thread?? enjoy your life as a single mother who disses marriage and I’ll enjoy mine.

  • Juliaquan C Spain

    Oh my what are we becoming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    Yep this single woman is enjoying life to the fullest by traveling the world when my married friends havent traveled 2 the next county.

Yep lmma sleep real good.???

    Or just cook at home and stop frequenting these dirty restaurants

    It’s not just that it isnt black owned it’s that black People are promoting the hell out of it and their sales have gone up over 20 million dollars. We need to stop shucking and jiving for these folks. It’s free promotion and they don’t even have to pay to market. Sure other things are not owned by black people but at least let them work hard to get the dollar

    What about white on white crime and Korean on Korean??? The black on black narrative is just that a narrative. People kill who they are in a demographic with

    i know it has the pig in it. thats why it tastes so good. a lot of ppl dont like pork and i understand why they don't but i do. we agree to disagree lol.

    Maybe they should market these at voting booths in November!

  • Myopinion

    No, you agreed with me so we are not disagreeing at all. You said you know it's bad and understand why people DON'T eat Swine. See I don't understand why people DO eat Swine, so I can't agree to disagree.

  • Look@m3

    I live here too and I didn't hear about it until this campaign started.....I don't eat fastfood like that and when I went to get chicken for the family occasionally I don't think I paid attention to a sandwatch, the marketing just wasn't there, plus when you got to popeyes that's not an item you'd particular go there for. Most people go there for the chicken and bypass the shrimp. I see more marketing for their deserts than I did for this chicken sandwhich...and if I went to burger king I wouldn't look for a chicken sandwhich.
    Now, on to my real question which is better (popeyes or chich fi la)because I have had to put my family on a popeyes chicken diet because I can not make it off the street to the drive thru.

  • Let them eat cake

    im saying we agree to disagree because pig tastes good to me and that overrides why you and others think its garbage because i'm still going to eat it.

  • Myopinion
  • dru and neil

    Understood. I’m not on twitter so I really didn’t even know it was blacks promoting it to this extent. I saw a few news reports about a chick fil a/popoyes feud, saw a few clips of folks waiting in line and that’s about it. Didn’t know black folks on Twitter was the driving force.

  • hottlanta

    Had those same white women who voted for dump stood in line for some popeyes chicken we wouldnt have him as president.

  • hottlanta

    Please sebi looked like he needed to do a popeyes chicken sit in. He looked hungry each time l saw his picture.

  • hottlanta

    He meant pokeeye wasnt good for your health

  • Queen B

    Lol ? I would say Chik fil A bc Popeyes put too much damn mayo on my sandwich lol my bf was the one who actually put me on the sandwich. I got it one time and never had the urge to go back ? it was good but not that good for it to be going viral

  • JayBird

    "He's pro black man" Say it again! Most black men are pro black man i.e. Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poiter, T.I, Bill Cosby....they could give a rat's ass about black women.

  • Look@m3

    Idk I still want to try it because it looks really good on the picture...I keep thinking it will be better than chic fi la but I keep hearing mixed reviews. I'll have to tell them to definitely hold the mayo because I cant stomach that. Thanks
