Recently there has been an item in the news regarding a certain menu selection at NBC’s Corporate Headquarters in NYC, aka “30 Rock.” On February 1st, workers at 30 Rock went into the commissary to find that day’s offerings to be a celebration of Black Culture with a menu consisting of fried chicken, collard greens and black eyed peas. A small firestorm then was started, led by Questlove the drummer for the Hip Hop group, the Roots, crying out that this menu was racist. NBC, in typical corporate response, had the menu removed and apologized to those who may be offended.
