You have got to be kidding me!!!

Apparently, here is an 'urban' radio station somewhere in the bay area having a black history month contest. The listeners have to write an essay at least six lines long talking about local black leaders. Now so far this all sounds reasonable right? So what's the catch?

Well, in a stroke of marketing genius worthy of Amos & Andy, they decided to award the winner a free dell computer and a year's supply of Popeye's Chicken!!!

Yep, you read that right. A year's supply of fried chicken. From a 'black' radio station. I'm guessing that their plan to have the National Watermelon Promotion Board co-sponsor didn't pan out. Who do they have working there? Rejects from the Mcdonalds frycook training program? How monumentally idiotic do you have to be to even consider offering chicken as a prize for a black history month event? What kind of drugs are these people on? I have nothing else to say about this. I feel like I already lost brain cells just looking at that site.
