Is This Racist?

How do you survive a crowd of "awkward" black people?

According to KFC's latest [Australian] advertisement a bucket of fried chicken will do the trick.

Is this racist? You tell me.

Now, apparently, a flustered white guy gets out of an "awkward situation"--which in this case appears to mean being stuck in a crowd of happy, cheering fans who is supporting a team that the white fan isn't supporting, defuses the tension of buying tickets for the wrong seats by ordering in fried chicken for himself and the neighbors around him. At least, that's how I'd defuse this race card time bomb for KFC.

KFC American offices are going to have to throw KFC Aus. under the bus for this one.
