Lawmaker Blames Poverty on Fried Chicken

Colorado state Sen. Vicki Marble (R) suggested that more blacks and Hispanics live in poverty, in part, because of fried chicken, KDVR reports.

Said Marble: "When you look at life expectancy, there are problems in the black race: sickle-cell anemia is something that comes up, diabetes is something that's prevalent in the genetic makeup and you just can't help it. Although I've got to say, I've never had better BBQ and better chicken and ate better in my life than when you go down south and you -- I love it."

Marble went on to mention how Mexicans eat vegetables in Mexico but stop eating healthily when they immigrate to the United States.
