Is that the building that was, until recently, a Chinese restaurant?
Nothing like poor choice in quote selection to get folks talking! JEEZ
I'm not sure it was a fair choice,for the author or the young man that made the statement, to use that quote in such a manner that is misleading and taken out of context. Don't editors & journalists have a code of ethics or a sense of social responsibility?
Writers have no control over the cover art or quotes pulled to go along with their articles. The cover quote is one sentence taken out of a lengthy article. I thought Elizabeth did a beautiful job on this piece.
Even if it's one piece taken out of a lengthy article, the point is, it’s not relevant. If you're going to have a small sentence like that on the front of a magazine for the world to see, it needs to be a topic or at least tie in to the story. So evidently The Reader put this on the cover to try to offend Black girls, because if they would have read this article, they would have used a sentence more related to this story, not "Nobody likes Black girls" Foolishness.
I thought it was just fun.. and since everyone feels like they need to announce who they are, Im a big white homo!! Lighten up!!
Where did this Coco's get the gall big enough thinking they could successfully set up shop across the street from a culinary constellation? The blind, stupid nerve of some people! Who in their right mind would choose to dine of generic crumbs when for less money they could hike up their Depends and bask in the ambiance-free elegance of the Chicken Pie Shop? At least with a 7-11 across the street, I now have somewhere convenient to stop after dinner to pick up my cigarettes, package goods, and a bag of pork rinds.
After hearing that North Park Water Tower is used to hold their chicken gravy, I refuse to go to Chicken Pie Shop. I prefer my gravy in a small can, just like Julia Child always insisted!
