Nom Nom Nom!

Another appropriation by white people that may have a lot of disrespect baked into it (no pun intended but quite pleased with myself once it happened) tho in this particular case, anyone who's eaten great fried chicken may be tempted to look the other way:
Edge, who calls Southern cuisine “food cooked by people who live here, who call this place their own,” argues that its appropriation and gentrification is rooted in a combination of nostalgia and the capitalization of a new respect that swept the South in the 1970s. The ugly response to the Civil Rights movement was replaced with a newer, progressive image — a peanut farmer had just been elected president, and the South was no longer America’s “problem child.”
