Chicken Joints Under Fire

A sign of the times, one might pun (though it is serious).

NEW YORK (AP) -- Two New York City fried chicken restaurants in predominantly black neighborhoods are under fire for putting President Barack Obama's name on their signs.

City Councilman Charles Barron said Friday that he will organize a demonstration next week outside the Obama Fried Chicken in his Brooklyn district if the sign doesn't change.

Opponents also say they may target Obama Fried Chicken & Pizza in Harlem.

Barron said he has been getting calls from outraged residents in his district.
