    It never ceases to amaze me what people can come up with to complain about.

    It is a little racist. I'll bet Dr. King also liked roast beef and potatoes as well why not choose that?

    I bet my Southern Friends here will attest that is a "Southern Style" meal.

    Maybe these parents should learn to choose their battles, like teacher/student ratio in the classroom or such.

    Blacks are often stereotyped as a people who loves to eat fried chicken and watermelon. It's true in most cases however it isn't really in bad taste if you're trying to guess what food most black people will like. Just as white Americans like their hamburgers with cheese or hot dogs.

    I bet Dr King would have enjoyed it.

    That was a common meal for Southern blacks (whites too)

    Hey...they didn't serve watermelon

    I don't know why, but every time I eat fried chicken and watermelon, my skin gets a little bit darker.

    It's Denver....The city (largely the southern 'burbs and mountain resort towns throughout CO) became overran with politically correct Fornicalia libbie flower children in the '90s, after the riots, fires and mudslides.

    The state hasn't yet recovered.

    That is fucking ridiculous!

    If they had said they were serving a meal that honored MLK and left it at that, it might be a little bit of a problem.

    But since it was advertised as a "Southern Style Meal", there is no problem with it.
