Michael Steele & "Fried Chicken and Potato Salad"

by Richard Ivory

Recently, RNC Chairman, named Michael Steele, used the words "fried chicken" and "potato salad" while taking questions from the media. Michael Steele was visiting Indiana for a recent Young Republican Federation's Convention in Indianapolis, Indiana when he made the comments.

During the convention, Steele was asked a series of questions from the media and from local bloggers regarding outreach and the GOP's efforts to move forward. Steele replied that his overall message would be simply "yawl come, because a lot of you are already here." In other words, as long as he was Chairperson the door would be open.

In a humorous reply to Steele's position, a local blogger by the name of Cameron Cowan, perhaps picking up on Steele's, use of the word "Yawl" stated that "he would bring the collard greens" to which Steele jokingly replied that " he would bring the 'fried chicken and the potato salad'". All of this is worth noting because a few liberal bloggers are chiming in claiming that this was Steele's outreach strategy for blacks.

Perhaps I am missing something but is this not a classic case of nit picking and promoting a non- story?

Below is the actual video what do you folks think?

HHR NOTE: The only political party that I know that shoved out free food to black folks via politics and religion was Democrats and there progressive cult leader Jim Jones. He gave out chicken and Kool-Aid then sent everyone on a nice long trip from imperialist racist America to the jungles of Guyana
