The Loony Liberal Whole Foods Organic Chicken Conspiracy

The political-correctness crusaders can finally relax. 

The loony left have been successful in their quest to make some Americans so hyper-sensitive, that if the image of a black person is anywhere within 500 feet of an actual chicken, a sign with a chicken on it, or worse yet, a sign advertising a sale on organic chicken, get ready for the offended to protest by turning over a stand stacked high with organic watermelons.

That is exactly what almost happened at an Upper West Side Whole Foods supermarket when Woody Henderson (no, not Harrelson) happened upon a sign advertising a one-day special for organic chicken at $1.99 lb.

Woody is the activist producer/host of the Time Warner Cable show “A Struggle for Justice,” and is founder and director of the Organization for Reunification & Rehabilitation of Children & Families (ORRCF).  ’Nuff said.
When not “struggling for justice,” Woody probably spends most of his time either impersonating Jesus in dreadlocks or on the lookout for politically incorrect supermarket ads.

After spotting the Whole Foods chicken sign, an outraged Mr. Henderson declared,“There are certain things that have been used to put down black people – watermelon, fried chicken.” Relax Woody, it’s just an organic chicken, and no one said anything about frying it.

Not to offend, but if you think about it, except when pulling the occasional rickshaw, even La Choy Chow Mein made a concerted effort to avoid having Chinese people in their commercials.

Nonetheless, organic or fried, one would think that an establishment that touts animal welfare and green standards and adheres to a whole-planet mission would be welcoming to the likes of “One Love” Bob Marley-lookalike Mr. Woody Henderson.  Maybe there is such a place, but it’s not Whole Foods.

Of late, Whole Foods seems to be on the Upper East Side liberal hit list, because on Woody’s Facebook page his ‘friend’ Phenice Arielle posted the following rant, complete with lots of words in ALL CAPS for emphasis and a picture of the Whole Foods organic chicken sale sign:

Last month WHOLE FOODS CEO John Mackey compared The Affordable Care Act to fascism. This month Whole Foods Market NYC ( Whole Foods Market ) goes FROM FASCISM TO RACISM with the sign Whole Foods chose to display on Feb 19th, 2013 depicting an obviously recognizable African American as being excited about Chicken (of all things) being on sale and noting its ‘Welfare Rating.’ *Ironically, the only thing to be excited about now is NOT SHOPPING AT WHOLE FOODS.

Ah ha!  This whole controversy has little to do with America’s first African-American president being associated with chicken and everything to do with anger over proud capitalist John Mackey expressing his opinion of Obamacare.  Although Mr. Mackey’s sentiment was 100% correct, he kind of deserves a hard time for attempting to appeal to the grass-fed patchouli-oil crowd.

Local residents and passing sign spectators agreed that the angry-looking man on the sign did resemble Barack Obama, but not everyone felt it was disparaging. For instance, Joseph Joshua registered his opinion by saying, “Obviously it looks like the president, but I don’t think it’s racist.”  Racist?  Come on, it’s not like they’re selling organic collard greens.

Actually, rather than a hungry black man unable to control his craving for organic chicken, the image did resemble an impassioned Barack Obama in the heat of social justice rhetoric. Then again, in an effort to make amends for speaking the truth about Obamacare, the signage could have been John Mackey’s wily way of paying homage to America’s first fascist president.

Racist-Obama-signIn an attempt to explain away the brouhaha, a Whole Foods spokesperson said store artists create a variety of pop culture imagery to promote sales and events.  But Austin-based comic book artist and former Whole Foods sign maker Paul Maybury lost his job at the store because a vegan shopper was offended by a Mr. T sign he had made that said “I pity the fool who don’t eat sirloin steak.”

Nonetheless, because the chicken sale drew complaints that the ad was offensive, the supermarket quickly responded and removed the sign that looked like Barack Obama.  Besides, Woody should know by now that the president prefers $100-a-pound Wagyu beef to $1.99-a-pound organic chicken.  Still, a Whole Foods spokesperson stressed, “There was no disrespect meant at all.”

As an aside, is it too late to complain about the message being sent by having an old Italian with a mustache depicted on a can of Chef Boyardee?

And speaking of canned ravioli, when Woody was doing his culturally sensitive investigative reporting, he must not have noticed the ‘First Cut Brisket: Uncured Corn Beef’ that Whole Foods was selling for St. Paddy’s Day, because it had a leprechaun on the package!  And is Mr. Henderson aware that in Madera, California, Whole Foods was selling Black Figs for $5.99 a pound, as well as Black-eyed peas?  And where the hell was Woody when Whole Foods was selling illegal-immigrant-offensive Mexican Limes?

In the end, Whole Foods’ “vision of a sustainable future means [with their help] our children and grandchildren will be living in a world that values human creativity, diversity, and individual choice.” Not so fast! Don’t forget we still have Woody on the hunt for organic chicken injustice!

This proves yet again that as far as the pouty flakes living on the Upper East Side are concerned, “human creativity, diversity, and individual choice” had better not involve a Whole Foods organic chicken sale sign with a black guy on it, or something.


Kevin Jackson's hilarious take on Race-Pimping: The Multi-Trillion Dollar Business of Liberalism!

Enjoy this excerpt from the book:

"The money in diversity is enormous, even bigger than former sportscaster turned political pundit turned sportscaster Keith Olbermann’s ego. Wouldn’t you like to be a “reverend” and father children out of wedlock without repercussions? If you study hard, this book will teach you how to have your non-profit organization pay your mistress and your child support – all at the same time. You must be so black that if you eat sushi, watch reruns of Dawson’s Creek and Friends, or enjoy the ballet, you will hang yourself."

    I am a liberal, and I find this funny. However, we must recognize where there is a line between joking and stereotyping. This could be considered the latter.

    • Linda Center

      Well, I have to say that there has been a very fine line between stereotyping and just drawing the race card. Having said that, I’m not so sure all stereotyping is bad. Some of the very best southern fried chicken EVER was made by a very dear black family I knew in Houston. They do chicken right and I never resisted an invitation! In my mind, this isn’t bad, it’s good! So tired of all the sensitivity taken too far.

    • Navigator1924

      If you’re talking about the ad, that wasn’t racist. That was referring to a man who is taking all your money and then pretending to give you a sale. The chicken just happened to be what was on sale. You could think, for instance, what comes first, the chicken or Obama. And for everyone’s info, my new Windows 8 OS automatically capitalizes Obama’s name.

    • scott

      stereotyping,ok,let’s see,what ethnic group is seen eating more chicken then any other,yup,you got it,blacks.Why is it stereotyping for using them in a chicken ad then?Is this same ass offended when he sees blacks advertising malt liquor on TV?Some people just need to be in the spot light all the time or they have no sense of being.It all started with jerky Jessie Jackson and then Fat Albert Sharpton,now any black person that has a gripe with society is an activist.If these activists want to protest something and make a difference,why don’t they protest the local drug dealer selling drug to blacks and black youth,or the dealers that lure young blacks to the life of dealing drugs with the promise of quick riches.

    • Steve Thomas

      Only by libtards. Get over yourself!! Have you ever asked if the Blacks in those ads appreciated the paychecks????

  • Shaun Dudash

    “And where the hell was Woody when Whole Foods was selling illegal-immigrant-offensive Mexican Limes?” He was probably staring at the can of spotted dick.

    • Frederick Johnsen

      They have spotted dick. I used to eat that in England. I have to look for that next time.

  • jpo321

    You should be able to slap people who are offended about stuff like this.

  • the_publius

    The nescience of the liberal/progressive do-gooder class is so obvious that it’s hard to believe they aren’t just laughed off the stage and out of all our lives.

  • Mike Yeager

    Has anyone of them ever eaten a niger toe?


      my MOM loved niger toes and sometimes she would smash them between 2 crackers

      • Karen Marie

        Now THAT made me laugh out loud! Thanks, shortywest for a great reply!

  • etp0802

    What next? White folks selling crackers?

    • Old Man Selmers

      Why not, we’ve already sold all the black folk

  • Randy C. Lindsey

    Barack as Uncle Ben. Michelle as Aunt Jemimah. Why the hell not? Where’s your sense of humor.

  • Chris Bogh

    Woody Who???

  • SignCowboy

    Bring up Obama Care in this is Completely RETARDED! !!!. You need to Remember that the Republicans Re Wrote the Health Care Bill the way THEY WANTED IT!!!!!.QUIT CALLING IT OBAMA CARE, IT IS REALLY REPUBLICAN CONGRESS CARE!!!!!!

    • Navigator1924

      You’re wrong. Staffers wrote the Obamacare, don’t you remember Pelosi saying “you have to vote to pass it, to know what’s in it”. Look it up

    • simmy1029

      Where do libs come up with this stuff? Seems to be an “low information voter!”


      that is so funny not

  • Navigator1924

    That woman should be thanking Jesus that she has the money to shop at Whole Foods. This is a riot. I’m from the Deep South, we don’t have this sort of thing going on down here. Our culture is much more “refined and tolerant” and we love our neighbors no matter if they are black or white yellow or whatever. Most of us are Christians and that love is a part of our lives as believers.
    When I look at Obama, I don’t see a black man at all > I see a slimy crook who is out to steal everything he can. I see an opportunist who belongs in prison. I see “one” who hates in a quiet stoic manner. That’s what I see. I don’t care if he’s black. These New Yorkers and their offended selves could use a good laugh. I am proud of Whole Foods for fighting this communist in the WH in such a funny way. I hope it catches on. I wonder if that woman understands what’s coming down all around her..

    • Juana Verycken

      You tell the truth.

    • far2right

      When anyone seems offended by my references to his policies I always blame it on his white side.

      • Steve Thomas

        I’m not racist, Obama’s white half sucks too! (I make stickers.)

  • Yvonne Michelle Chambers Gumm

    I’d have to say there ain’t nothing wrong with fried chicken or watermelon. Loved them both. The gala ritzy is that people are upset by it.

  • Chuck Koontz

    Woody, GROW A HAIR!

  • CommiMarko

    I think the sign depicts Obama as price cutter for the Middle Class not to mention the 1.99 symbolizing the 99% … President Obama helping the Middle Class … what do you do when President Obama says he’s going to help you … blow your rape whistle.

    • Steve Thomas

      Finally, a GOOD use for that damn whistle.

      • CommiMarko

        Now that Uncle Joe has been giving us more material … a slap, not just your everyday slap … blindly fire both barrels thru the front door … empty your gun by shooting it into the air.

        • Steve Thomas

          I read that someone to joe’s advice. He was then up on a charge of voluntary manslaughter. I think the guy should name Joe as an accomplice.

  • Frederick Johnsen

    And black people don’tn eat chicken Mr. Henderson? Ever dang time we have Black History Month in the Army, which is organized mainly by black soldiers and civilians, we have chicken at the chow hall, soul food dinners at the presentation. Stop being a numb nuts. Black people actually do eat fried chicken and here a secret – so do white people. Grow up.

  • tomstur

    A chicken a day keeps the Republicans at bay. Oh sorry this might be construed as a political insult. Sorry GOP I was confused at chicken poop droppings at our national prayer breakfast with Doctor Carson standing up for principals and you since your elections eat the poop droppings spread by your friends on the other side of the isle. Constipation might be humbling but its long lasting consequences will create a running away affect. Very messy clean up. to come. Fiber and a large sack will serve us well. Thanks for your continued sacrifice of your principals.

    • Steve Thomas

      They don’t sacrice…they just give up fighting you libtards.

  • sidneydave

    I’m offended because this sale is on a Friday during Lent and I am a Catholic. Maybe we should ban all advertising because someone is surly to be offended.

    • Steve Thomas

      Include TV shows, churches, cars ( I am offended by rice burners), politicians, sports, clothing ads, etc.etc.

  • sclars

    Free speech is a constitutional right given only to Henderson and those of his mentality all others need not apply. Just ask him, Obama, Holder, Sharpton, or Rev. Wright.


    How can they say it’s racist with a picture of Mr. ‘O’ on the ad. He IS after all 1/2 white and we all know that one drop of white blood makes you white…. Right??
    Okay, so maybe the ad is only HALF RACIST,……………. Against white folks?
    But HEY!, who am I to talk? I’m Cherokee and European and even I like chicken.


    give’em pokechopes and watermelon
