After being sworn to secrecy for 6 months, I’m super excited to finally share that I’m the new host of “MTV Decoded” a new web series produced by MTV News and Kornhaber & Brown.
Part vlog, part sketch comedy, each week we’ll use comedy to tackle race and pop culture with a fun and educational spin. New episodes premiere every Wednesday on the MTV News YouTube channel so make sure to subscribe! Check out our first episode, “Are Fried Chicken & Watermelon Racist?” linked above!
This is great, I died when you said “mm taste like oppression”…I’ll be watching!
Love your stuff!
Love you Franchesca!
Honestly though, I do love fried chicken! Like really! Now watermelon? It’s okay but I’d rather have an orange or apple.
I’m a white old lady… but not into Starbucks or fancy coffee at all. (Go figure?) Some beans, my grinder… water, Mr. Coffee drip machine, and a few minutes later Voila! (Not even cream or sugar?) LOL 🙂
Hey franchesca. Growing up I herd the water melon and fried chicken stereotype. At 28, living In Japan I could not help but notice how popular watermelon and fried chicken was with the locals there. I thought to myself, Wow I’m not alone as my favorite foods are embraced by people all around the word. Just amazing to think what would happed it the same purveyors of hate would have used words to find commonalities in the mundane things human beings enjoy, like eating watermelon and fried chicken.
You asked for food stereotypes….Fact. Chinese (actually from China), have no idea what a fortune cookie is.
Most importantly, Where are your sources? Secondly, What episode contains the black racists towards blacks. By your logic, its true that all blacks in position of authority who hire whites over blacks, must themselves be racist towards blacks. You clearly show that this is the only possible answer, that its never based on individual skills.
