That's the description found on McDonald's 365Black website -- an Internet presence exclusively for the African-American. The site, which features Keith Sweat proclaiming his love for Chicken McNuggets, has some people mad. Then there's a blog over on Fox Nation that has over 800 comments about the site, mostly from mad people who believe it to be "tactless," racist and blatant separatism. Many are calling for a Mickey D boycott. I am sorry but I don't get what all the hoopla about. Will some one explain to me what's wrong with this. McDonald has always been a big supporter of the black community. Tom Joyner and McDonald have been partners for many years. The Tom Joyner Morning Show is were I first heard the solgan 365Black. So again I don't understand what's the problem.

"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."
