It's getting Smokey at the Cracker Barrel

smokey robinson21 It's getting Smokey at the Cracker Barrel

How do you feel about Smokey Robinson’s music being offered at Cracker Barrel? You know, the same Cracker Barrel that has been accused of being racially discriminatory? Well, some people feel a bit uncomfortable with the idea of Smokey Robinson having his music offered for sale at Cracker Barrel restaurants.

But the singing legend says he’s happy to be associated with the chain, which has occasionally been accused of discriminating against blacks.

Robinson says he had a chance to visit with officials at the chain’s headquarters near Nashville, Tennessee and he was impressed.

He notes he is the first Black artist Cracker Barrel has had in its music program and he is very proud of that.

He says the company is a very diverse place and feels it’s a great place to have his music.

The Cracker Barrel CD is titled “Now and Then” – and consists of six songs from his new album and six of his older hits, performed live.

    Some negroes are always happy to be the first in everything, thinking it is sometimes a compliment. Some negroes would even be happy to be the first grand dragon of the Christian Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. I never liked Smokey Robinson, some of his music is Ok, but i’m more of a fan of the sound of Philadelphia ( Kenny Gamble, Leon Huff) and the artists produced by them…Teddy Pendergrass, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, O’Jays, etc. Smokey need his head examined, any store with “Cracker” in it’s name, should be a wakeup call to all black conscious people. I never ate in this franchise, i’m more of a Waffle House diner. I say we boycott any concerts, music, and contact this negro and let him know we will not be supporting him anymore. Is he that hardup for cash that he is willing to sellout himself and his people?….

      It is called vanity and plastic surgery. He’s looking like a missing object from Madame Tuseaud Wax Museum…
