Senator Cites Fried Chicken as One Reason Blacks Live in Poverty

Senator Blacks live In Poverty Because Of Fried Chicken
Sen. Vicki Marble, R-Fort Collins, and Rep. Rhonda Fields, D-Aurora, sparred Wednesday over Marble’s comments during a hearing on poverty at the Capitol.

AFRICANGLOBE – Democratic lawmakers couldn’t believe their ears as they listened to Colorado Sen. Vicki Marble, R-Fort Collins, deliver a long soliloquy explaining that more Blacks and Hispanics live in poverty, in part, because of fried chicken.

The comments came during a meeting of the Economic Opportunity Poverty Reduction Task Force Wednesday at the Colorado Capitol as lawmakers on the committee were presented with a number of statistics highlighting racial disparities in the poverty rate.

“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,” Marble said. “Although I’ve got to say, I’ve never had better BBQ and better chicken and ate better in my life than when you go down south and you — I love it.

Marble went on to mention how Mexicans eat vegetables in Mexico but stop eating healthily when they immigrate to the United States.

“These things aren’t good for you,” she continued. “There’s so many attributing factors as to why these graphs look the way they do.”

According to Sen. Evie Hudak, D-Arvada, “there was an audible gasp in the room.” However Vicki Marble had nothing to say about the effects of inbreeding on the health of residents.

Colorado Senator Cites Fried Chicken as One Reason Blacks Live in Poverty


  1. THIS WOMEN IS ACTUALLY A SENATOR ? She is truly out of touch w/ her communities, doing homework i see was not her strong suit. Eating unhealthy foods is not good for you but really. That’s the only issue that creates poverty, it may be 1 factor regarding health issues, but how about the high cost of; living, food, childcare, health care, education, economic growth, unfair wages, Poor education values throughout our education system in America. Any of those things matter??? What a dunce!

  2. No brother I am just getting a laugh on Africa Globe cause every now and then they post something that makes you wonder why they would bother to put something so rediculous in the news, especially with all the hell African people are catching globally, and will be catching unless we focus on what is serious and leave this kind of lunacy alone!

  3. People do not realize that more jobs are lost due to fried chicken. White supremist and high Illuminati Colonel Kentucky put bad luck Ju Ju in all of his original recipe fried chicken! After two or three buckets, you lose your job, your car, your house and then your wife or husband! That is why they cal it KFC.

  4. Ha ha ha! We have a member of congress in Mexico, who just banned marriage of gays and blind people because “they cannot see each other’s faces when making love”. Idiots are all over the world folks! Sadly they’re the ones in power…SMH.

  5. Lol…..this bitch said “fried chicken” so…i get it….wow Fried chicken is the main reason why Black and Spanish speaking people are in poverty….So in order to get outta poverty…you must first get rid of Fried chicken…. dam this chick is a genius….bravo..

  6. This is what happens when a state dummies down the educational system, they end up voting for people who should never be in a leadership position. There is a reason we are 28th in the world for education.
