Rev. Al Sharpton Preaches Compassion for Chickens

Black community leader The Rev. Al Sharpton has never been shy about raising his voice—whether it’s on the pulpit or on the presidential campaign trail. Now, Sharpton is speaking up for the more than 850 million chickens raised and killed each year for KFC, which announced plans at its investor meeting to market more heavily to African-Americans.



Rev. Sharpton has filmed an appeal to be screened outside KFC restaurants in urban centers across America, calling on the black community to boycott KFC until the company makes basic improvements in animal welfare. In the video, Sharpton outlines the abuses that chickens raised for KFC suffer and takes KFC to task. Sharpton says, “KFC is not black-owned, but it sure knows to market heavily to African-Americans … obviously hoping we won’t care about what they do the underdog, or in this case, the underchicken …. So, if KFC wants to take our money and use it to pay for sloppy practices that hurt animals—I say we send them a message that this is not going to happen. I’m calling on people to boycott KFC until they adopt animal welfare systems recommended by PETA and until they stop the worst abuses of the birds they raise for their restaurants.”

Rev. Sharpton isn’t the first civil rights leader to endorse PETA’s campaign. He joins comedian and activist Dick Gregory, former NAACP President Kweisi Mfume, scholars Derrick Bell and Cornel West, author Alice Walker, and hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, as well as Pam Anderson, Sir Paul McCartney, the Dalai Lama, and others in condemning KFC’s cruelty to animals.
