White Colorado Senator Says “Blacks Are In Poverty Because They Eat Too Much Fried Chicken”


vicki-marble-fried-chicken

Colorado state Senator Vicki Marble, R-Fort Collins, has the cure for poverty in the Black community: Stop eating all that chicken!

According to the Denver Post, Marble said in her ignorant statement to the post:

“When you look at life expectancy, there are problems in the black race,” – “Sickle-cell anemia is something that comes up. Diabetes is something that’s prevalent in the genetic makeup, and you just can’t help it. Although I’ve got to say, I’ve never had better barbecue and better chicken and ate better in my life than when you go down South and you, I mean, I love it. Everybody loves it.” 

Marble is a member of a task force which is what makes her remarks even more disturbing. The comments offended several legislators on the committee, including Rep. Rhonda Fields of Aurora, CO., who is Black.

  1. I don’t get why people think only blacks like fried chicken.. everyone of every race who isn’t a vegetarian likes some form of chicken covered in batter and cooked in grease whether it be wings/nuggets/ southern fried breast/ sweet and sour chicken/Orange chicken/chicken fingers/ chicken crispers.. etc

  2. Tracy,
    You need to be talking about the Mayoral election in NY. There is a black candidate (and a white candidate with a black wife and kids) and stop and frisk and income equality are central to the campaign. Lets talk about people and issues that effect us please!!

  13. Actually one would think she suffers from ADD. She jumps from the topic of race and health to the topic of economic status as it pertains to race and food and also geographical stand point. She’s not only ignorant but she can’t sustain a topic.
