Eddie Levert, the lead singer of The O’Jays, didn’t mince his words about the ongoing Popeyes crispy chicken sandwich craze during his acceptance speech at BLACK ENTERPRISE’s Black Men XCEL, an annual four-day summit that recognizes and empowers men of color. The legendary soul singer gave a harsh critique of the chicken-lovers standing in notoriously long lines for a bite of the wildly popular sandwich.

“It’s not just about me and the popularity and the records and all of that. This is about my people and that’s what I want to convey to the younger people — that this is not just about you and the bling and the cars. This is about our culture and about what we need to represent our people and how we need to represent our people,” said the songwriter while accepting his Black Men XCEL award last week. He then, however, claimed that those who are fueling the frenzy are a bad reflection of the African American community. “I really wish they would show it by not trying to buy that Popeye’s chicken sandwich,” he said as the audience laughed. “It would be a different thing if they owned the franchise. I could understand it if we were going to make money from that and it was going to benefit our culture. But you’re making a mockery of who we are and it shames me.”

He should have paid the child support. Maybe Eddie should have taught his son that important fact instead of scolding the rest of us for liking a chicken sandwich. :shrug:

How is that different from folk standing in line for hours to get into an OJay's concert? The only difference is that those folk  can afford the chicken sandwich. I'm just sayin!  :shrug:

Why are you holding one grown a$$ adult responsible for what another grown a$$ adult does? Stay focus on things you can potentially change, the living. Dead folk business is a road that leads to nowhere.

Eddie Levert's mother stayed down the street from me when I was growing up.  I used to see him and his son's quite often.  He has/had, I don't know her status now, a little sister who was a little younger than me.

That was still his son.

Adults make mistakes.

A grown man not taking care of the kids he brings in this world is 100% on HIS parents not raising him right.

Eddie Levert absolutely failed his own son, but not wants to talk to us about our behavior? He should hold his head in shame.

With all the divisive rhetoric on social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter, websites such as ours, especially message boards, are under the watchful eye of the Internet giants. And those giants are coming down hard on sites like this one due to the perception of the need for better "oversight".

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.

 

As a result we are coming to you directly for your financial support>
