Black people and fried chicken is an unshakable stereotype that has gone into overdrive thanks to the countless commercials linking us to our alleged Kryptonite.

Mary J. Blige made the world to let out a collective sigh, when she appeared in a Burger King commercial about a chicken wrap—which has since been pulled. Blige belted out her adoration for the wrap as if it were a longtime lover, but she’s not the only one shucking and jiving for fowl. Part of the problem is too many people are quick to dismiss or remain oblivious to the history behind these deep rooted stereotypes and the harm they cause.

Here are 10 other fade-worthy fried chicken commercial starring Black people. We gotta do better America.
