I live In Warren Terrance Apartments located at 8701 Calmont Avenue which is in Fort Worth, TX. I've lived in Texas now for a few months (in Dallas) and I have lived in Fort Worth now for a little over a month. This community would be considered low income and mostly black, and Hispanic minority residents. There are, however, a few higher income people who choose to stay here because it is so cheap And they save money quickly. 

Today I was surprised to see a large, brand new Church bus outside my apartment. It had "The Pentecostals of Fort Worth" written on the side, and a tall, slender, well dressed white guy was walking around. I approached him and asked him did they pick up from my location and he immediately said yes and before I could say another word he asked me did I want to come and said they were serving "fried chicken". [continued below]....

.....

I am a black person and since living in Texas I hear "fried chicken" from these ignorant, racist white folks a lot. They know the historical significance and racial insimulations of approaching black people and claiming we all love "fried chicken" but here in Texas they show their ignorance proudly and then claim stupidity. 

It it was also the way Mr. Michael Morgan said it and he didn't say it once he kept repeating it. After listening to him continuously loudly try to persuade me to come to his church by saying over and over in a loud and embarrassing act (to me anyway) that they had fried chicken I took his card and quickly moved on.

When I called the church to complain, the white woman who answerd the phone also claimed ignorance and said "Well, we are serving chicken". Unbelievable. The day they decide to promote the church in what they knew to be a majority black area they decided to serve "Fried Chicken" and to largely use that to promote themselves in a black neighborhood and draw blacks.

These racist idiots are dumb as hell and Texas has an abundance of them. 

Send an email to this church and let them know what they did is not acceptable. Its similar to driving through a Hispanic community using "Tacos" to draw members. I can't believe texans are this stupid.

Well, yeah I actually can.

#1 REBUTTAL Individual responds

Fried Chicken Racists?

AUTHOR: Lily - ()

First of all I am not affiliated with this church. I am not from Texas, but I am from the south. I am white, from the bible belt. Fried chicken is a known after Sunday school lunch, weather served at church or at home. Anytime the pastor was going long he would always say, "your fried chicken can wait give me a few more minutes" speaking to an all white audience. Mr. Morgan in my opinion probably never thought of offering fried chicken being racist. I mean come on you don't see the NAACP boycotting KFC's located in an all black neighborhood. Black people need to get over it. If you are a black person relax it's not 1950 anymore. By the way fried chicken don't care what color you are. In todays economy if anyone offers you a free meal you should take it..

The Response to my Report by a "Texan" Proves my Point PERFECTLY

AUTHOR: Ms. Prissy - ()

I laughed out loud at the response from presumably a "Texan" who failed to address the merits of my views and instead rushed to yelling out for me to "just leave". Someone needs to tell these ignoramouses here that "Jesus" was NOT A RACIST and that The Lord doesn't conform to stereotypes which is EXACTLY what the bus driver, Michael Morgan, did.

Texans believe that minorities should not even expect to be treated fairly and with DIGNITY in the lone star state. Whenever a minority points out racist acts, discriminatory and/or prejudiced acts committed by white people in Texans a Texan'a response is "JUST LEAVE"!! 

These people are really ignorant. Jesus is nowhere in their homes or churches.
