McDonalds makes a website just for all the black people

24 August 2009

Thanks to inspirational figures like President Obama, Sidney Poitier, Bill Cosby and Captain Dobie from Starsky and Hutch, there's never been a better time to be a black person!

Never quick to miss a trend, McDonalds have gotten hold of this precious information and have launched a special new website, JUST FOR THE BLACK PEOPLE! It's called 365Black, and after applying some theatrical Negro make up, we managed to sneak a look at it yesterday. Phew, the black man on the home page is smiling, rather than trying to rob us.

“Deeply rooted in the community" boasts the site, cleverly referencing the popular 1970s slave drama 'Roots' alongside such pro-active moves as sponsorship of community programmes, a PDF of 'Black History Facts' and erm, a whole bunch of other ridiculously misguided PR shit-wafflage.

Hey, but now that McDonalds are on their side, we hope that black people can throw off their (metaphorical) shackles and become equals of the Hispanics, the Orientals and the Scotch. Who knows – maybe we'll see some of them in the pop charts in a few years' time! The Blacks that is, not the Scotch – obviously.

    "Like the unique African Baobab tree, which nourishes its community with its leaves and fruit, McDonald's has branched out to the African-American community nourishing it with valuable programs and opportunities." WTF?!

    Don't you need a license or something to use the "Negro" word?

    Surely KFC should be jumping on this bandwagon... ...'At least I got chicken!'
  • Jeffrey A.
    Anybody else think that if they released 365white.com there would be absolute outcry from the "African American" community? I'd like to see a class action bought against Mcdonalds for racism tbh
  • Bill O.
    is "Kevin M., Radio Personality and Former McDonald’s Employee, Washington, D.C." the biggest "personality" this global superpower could get on board? Surely if theyre going to get a nobody, it would be better to have a nobody who works for them?

    Jeffrey Archer and other idiots who like to spew the usual lines, Shut up! The vast majority of black people who I have shown this to is offended. McDonalds like Coca-Cola and other companies are only interested in exploitation! Can McDonalds leave us alone!

    Um... The whole world needs to shutup and stop painting differences among races. Yes... while you have the ignorant, knuckle dragging american "niggaz" here, you have the white, ignorant, knuckle dragging chavs. I wouldn't like it if all white folk were painted as chavs and idiots. I'm sure stereotyping black folk is the same thing, so BAD SHOW mcdonalds. I suppose teaching the world not to be racist would be like teaching a pakistani not to haggle....

    A great man once said "There's only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch".

    Of course McDonalds is racist. Where have you been the past decade? The assholes only use blacks in their commericals and their advertising is clearly aimed towards blacks. Fuck McDonalds

    [...] Microsoft could learn a thing or two from McDonalds concerning interracial marketing. Or then again, perhaps not. Perhaps Microsoft should not be so dickish as to roll out a global advertising campaign with a [...]

    Good post. 365Black is ridiculous. I think this is one of those things that we're all going to look back on and say "I can't believe they thought like that!" I just wrote something up about it as well. http://doodiepants.com/2009/08/25/mcdonalds-website-just-for-people-with-darker-skin-365black-com/
