There IS a difference, and, frankly, I think it's a little scary that you can't see the difference.
I think also Al was responding to the fact that KFC said in their marketing plan that they are going to "target" the AFA community.

Here we go again.

The Yum! company targets their KFC products to African American consumers to an extreme degree. In the past year, the president of the company has said that they are concentrating their efforts on appealing to the black community. Do you not get this?

And even if he was making it a race issue (which he wasn't), making vulgar cracks about pork rinds, chitlins, and watermelons is rather tasteless and obscene. But you're the same person who said that a liberal's motto is "Eat, drink, and kill babies."

I think its a little scarey...no funny...that you can't realize that by watching that video he is turning a KFC/PETA/Chicken issue into a "black" issue...because more black people like fried chicken? WTH?

Exactly. KFC made it a "race issue."

Don't deny the motto...hell, embrase it. Its exactly what liberals stand for...the right to kill a child.

You're saying that animals deserve respect, but then you turn it around and basically say "Who cares about how they're treated if they're gonna be killed anyways." Oh wow.

That is not what I said. Stop putting word that you "want" me to say into my mouth.

I said that animals diserve to be treated with respect, period. But still have the understanding that they are going to be killed.

They are trying to compare the death of animals to the death of Christ...

Hmm... the conservative party supports the unethical treatment and murder of animals, and they support the death penalty. But I guess it's a good thing you guys found someplace to draw the line.

First of all I don't support unethical treatment of animals.

Second of all...yes I do support the death penalty...The punishment has to fit the crime.

I'm not putting any words in your mouth. If I was doing that, I'd be banned for some of the stuff I'd want you to say by now.

And if you think that the animals deserve respect, then why are you getting so worked up because Sharpton thinks a boycott of KFC is a good idea because he feels these chickens are being treated with disrespect?

How Christian of you. I'm sure God would approve.

Unfortunately, that's not why Bush started this war.
