White Man’s Chicken Day: The Implicit Whiteness and Racial Segregation of Chick-fil-A Restaurants, South Alabama Edition

Is Chick-fil-A running a white privilege business model?


Paul Kersey has a new post up on SBPDL.com about the implicit whiteness of Chick-fil-A restaurants.

After running through all 190+ Chick-fil-A locations in Georgia, he has empirically confirmed that Chick-fil-A only seems to thrive in upscale White Christian middle class enclaves.

Here in Alabama, few things are more obvious than the implicit whiteness of Chick-fil-A restaurants. In a state where black people love fried chicken, I couldn’t think of a single Chick-fil-A restaurant that I had ever seen in a Black Undertow ghetto area, and I am familiar with all of the majority black cities and counties in the Alabama Black Belt.

Paul Kersey writes:

“In reality, Chick-fil-A is company that is entirely wedded to a business model completely reliant on serving communities with strong social capital and a thriving middle-class. Yes, the religious aspect is important, but it is the concept of community (as Harvard sociologist Robert Putnam begrudgingly told us, communities can only thrive when trust and high social capital are present; i.e., a lack of diversity) that is fundamentally at the heart of the Truett Cathy’s enterprise.”

Let’s start with the peculiar geographic distribution of the Chick-fil-A restaurants on my own home turf in Southeast Alabama:

(1) Auburn, AL: 78.05% White

Chick-fil-A has three locations in Auburn which is not surprising given that 86.4 percent of Auburn University students are White and most of them come from the upscale middle class evangelical Christian families that are the foundation of the Chick-fil-A business model:

Village Mall
1627 Opelika Rd Ste 54
Auburn, AL 36830

326 W Magnolia Ave
Auburn, AL 36832

Auburn University
255 Duncan Dr
Auburn, AL 36849

The Chick-fil-A restaurants in Auburn are strategically located on the Auburn campus, at the Village Mall that caters to the Auburn-Opelika metropolitan area, and right on the main drag on East Magnolia Ave where Auburn students live in off campus housing near Jordan-Hare Stadium.

Two of the Chick-fil-A locations – Duncan Drive and East Magnolia – are in Census Track 404 which is 83 percent White. The Village Mall location straddles the Auburn-Opelika border in Census Track 411 which is 57 percent White.

(2) Opelika, AL: 50.6% White

Opelika is Auburn’s blacker and more downscale twin sister. There are more blacks and fewer upscale middle class White Christians here. Normally, we wouldn’t expect to see a Chick-fil-A location in Opelika, but the new TigerTown strip mall has opened up on I-85 in Opelika and this is a key area that attracts the commerce of all the White Auburn students like the Village Mall location.

2052 Tiger Town Pkwy
Opelika, AL 36801

The TigerTown location in Opelika is effectively a fourth Auburn location.

(3) Phenix City, AL: 52.94% White

Chick-fil-A has one location in Phenix City, AL which is a suburb of Columbus, GA:

3711 U.S. Hwy 280
Phenix City, AL 36867

The Phenix City location is strategically located in North Phenix City in Census Track 304 which is 72 percent White. This is the newer and more upscale part of Phenix City where Whites have been forced to move out toward the countryside and rebuild their civilization to escape the Black Undertow.

(4) Dothan, AL: 67.33% White

3418 Ross Clark Cir
Dothan, AL 36303

Chick-fil-A has one location in Dothan on Ross Clark Circle which is the White metropole of Southeast Alabama. This Chick-fil-A restaurant is located in the more ritzy part of Dothan’s commercial district in Census Track 404 which is 82 percent White.

(5) Troy, AL: 55% White

Where else would you expect to find a Chick-fil-A in Southeast Alabama?

Troy State University
214 Adams Ctr
Troy, AL 36082
(334) 670-5858

Of course, you can find the only other Chick-fil-A location in Southeast Alabama in the heart of the Troy University campus, which is the third largest state university system in Alabama. The Troy State University student body is 52 percent White.

There are enough upscale middle class White Christian students in Troy to justify one Chick-fil-A on campus. As we have seen, there are four Chick-fil-A locations in Auburn-Opelika, which is strange considering that Troy has 18,788 undergraduates whereas Auburn has 19,254.

The difference being that Auburn students are more White, more upscale, and more middle class, and have more money than Troy students, which always means more Chick-fil-A restaurants.

(6) Montgomery, AL: 37.3% White

After Southeast Alabama, the next area that I am most familiar with is Central Alabama, and 37.3% White Montgomery boasts an impressive list of five Chick-fil-A locations:

915 Ann St
Montgomery, AL 36107

201 Monroe St
Montgomery, AL 36104

2682 Eastern Blvd
Montgomery, AL 36117

Eastdale Mall
1250 Eastdale Mall
Montgomery, AL 36117

6921 Eastchase Loop
Montgomery, AL 36117

As we saw in Phenix City, the overall demographics of a city can be misleading, as the Chick-fil-A restaurants are never found in the Black Undertow areas, but are always found in suburban sprawl areas where upscale middle class White Christians have relocated to rebuild their civilization.

The Eastchase Chick-fil-A is located in the brand new Eastchase outdoor mall off Taylor Road in Census Track 5406 which is 82 percent White. The Eastdale Chick-fil-A location is still in Eastdale Mall – in Census Track 5402 which is 39 percent White – which until recently was “the White mall” in East Montgomery before the new outdoor Eastchase mall opened up to deter loitering by the Black Undertow.

The Montgomery-Promenade Chick-fil-A is located at the intersection of Vaughn Road and Eastern Boulevard. Until recently, this was also a very upscale middle class White Christian area, but the Black Undertow has expanded out of West Montgomery over the last ten years, and the demographics of Census Track 3302 have changed to 47 percent White/47 percent black, which is reflected in the flight of businesses in that shopping center and the encroachment of dollar stores from the west side of town.

The RSA Tower in downtown Montgomery on Monroe Street is a 22 story building that boasts its own Chick-fil-A location. There are plenty of White Christian customers among its tenants. The Ann Street location near downtown Montgomery caters to the 88 percent of Whites in Census Track 3301, the 85 percent of Whites in Census Track 17, and the 47 percent of Whites in Census Track 16.

(7) Prattville, AL: 83.09% White

Prattville has one Chick-fil-A location:

1967 Cobbs Ford Rd
Prattville, AL 36066

The Prattville-Millbrook area in Autauga County and Elmore County on the other side of the Alabama River are White suburbs where White Montgomery has been fleeing to escape the Black Undertow. So naturally, Chick-fil-A has opened a location in Prattville like it has opened a location in Eastchase where Whites are also retreating further into Montgomery County.

Whites are rebuilding Montgomery there because the immutable laws of The Visible Black Hand of Economics are steadily transforming East Montgomery into West Montgomery complete with the all standard features of a Black Undertow ghetto economy like innumerable abandoned shopping malls, depreciated homes, dollar stores, title pawn stores, hair and nail salons, beauty supply stores, car washes and cash advance stores.

(7) Daphne, AL: 85.33% White
1682 Us Highway 98
Daphne, AL 36526

Foley, AL: 74.49% White
3013 S Mckenzie St
Foley, AL 36535

Spanish Fort, AL: 93.64% White
30500 SR 181 Suite B
Spanish Fort, AL 36527

For some strange reason, there are three Chick-fil-A restaurants in the Mobile suburbs in Baldwin County, AL which is 85.7% White. Could it be because Mobile is also being rebuilt in the Whitopias of Baldwin County by upscale middle class White Christians who are trying to escape the violent crime, dysfunctional schools, and collapsing property values caused by the Black Undertow?

(8) Mobile, AL: 48.2% White

Mobile has four Chick-fil-A restaurants:

435 Schillinger Rd S
Mobile, AL 36695

University of South Alabama
350 Campus Dr
Mobile, AL 36688

Bell Air Mall
3215c Bel Air Mall
Mobile, AL 36606

3244 Dauphin St
Mobile, AL 36606

Naturally, there is a Chick-fil-A on the 64 percent White campus of the University of South Alabama, and we can also find Chick-fil-A in the Bell Air Mall where upscale middle class White Christians would be shopping.

The Chick-fil-A on Dauphin Street off I-65 caters to the 88 percent of Whites who live in Census Track 3302, Census Track 3301, and the 59 percent of Whites in Census Track 28. The Chick-fil-A on Schillinger Road caters to the surrounding census tracks which range from 60% White to 82% White.

There are no Chick-fil-A restaurants in Southwest Alabama outside of Mobile County and Baldwin County.

If you are looking for a Chick-fil-A restaurant in South Alabama, you will only find them in areas that are whiter than average, more upscale than average, more middle class than average, more evangelical Christian than average, and more Republican than average. You literally won’t find them anywhere else.

OD celebrates White Man’s Chicken Day by observing that black people love fried chicken, but for some reason Chick-fil-A doesn’t love black communities. Eat mor chikin!

  1. type what I said in full slow joe the jew troll. What is it with city yankees attempts to lie with half truths?

  2. I dunno Joe……..Michael Savage really loves his dog Teddy, feeds him steak all the time, lol….

    I think yer cover’s blown 😉

  3. oh such fun!
    Hey, someone just re-uploaded the video that the dork I referred to above deleted once his little stunt backfired, hahaha, enjoy!

  4. Did you hear the little faggot? Getting free water and harassing the young lady made him fell purposeful. What a pathetic life it must live

  5. “Thinking I might have to do something really revolutionary and take the wife on a 5 hour road trip to the nearest Chik-fil-A (in Boise) and eat.”

    There’s a Chik-fil-A in Boise? Whaddya know? Idaho goes up yet ANOTHER notch in my estimation. (Great potatoes).

  6. “Joe Among You indeed.”

    John- when I first began to post over at AmRen, that jerk kept on negating EVERY SINGLE STATEMENT I made. Then, when the ‘censors’ started “F.451’ing” all comments, Jew Among You ALWAYS got in, and I didn’t.

    I left Am Ren, and wandered in the mists for a while, until finding this site two years ago. Now, visiting AmRen, I see that they are allowing WHITE FRUSTRATION to come to the fore. The comments are edgiers, more ‘real’, and even a bit anti-Nazi- AshkeNAZI, that is……

    Like the line above, I value a witty and intelligent man. Bravo, John.

  7. Joe-ism’s (they need to be collated and made into a book, to say to annoying people)

    “Try swallowing your pills with a glass of water next time, instead of grinding them up and snorting them.” – 313 Chris
    Good one!

    “Mystery solved: Joe is really Michael Savage” – Mary
    That can’t be. He said steak, not Weiner……

  8. Denise: wonderful news, I certainly will visit!

    Mega-dittoes. (that is, if you don’t mind a catholic cleric commenting on a site co-hosted with an Aryan “Godess”- isn’t that a conflict of religion? LOL- oops. Ell, Oh, Ell.

  9. Hunter- sorry for the silly posts, but the good news of the Chik-fil-A blowback (ewww, can’t say that about gays- darn, there I go again…) has made me giddy with laughter, and outrageously happy that, maybe, finally, perhaps, who knows?

    There might be a Saxon Awakening- even in a Romney presidential year.

    (I see the Libtard Jewsmedia saying that “Obummer has a significant lead…. in states where Dumb-o-craps already have a ….. ‘significant lead.’ Well, DUH! That’s like saying a Nigger is Black. Oxymoron. “Niger- Lat., black”)

    So, what I am trying to say is that this needs to be HARPED on, DRILLED INTO, never forgive/never forget until WAY after Obummer is shown the door to the WHITE House, where he’s been the House Nigger for the last four years.

    Thank you for blogging on this, and collating data, like Mr. Kersey is doing. Bury the bastards (Heb. 12:8) with data, like they’ve been doing ever since Kinsey and Myrdal lied to the entire White World….

  10. Funny, I always hated grape soda and orange drink even as a kid, long before I knew anything about “nigger culture”.

    Is it nature or nurture?

  11. “I Rest My Case” :
    I notice no one’s been able to respond to what I said about the Chic-Fil-A campaign in any kind of intelligent manner*, let alone be able to refute anything I said about the Chick-Fil-A issue. Just “silly” responses ; Childish, puerile, “silly” responses : Fr John knows it. He admitted it so himself: “sorry for the ‘silly’ posts”.
    * I’m not suprised because the case I made about the Chick-Fil-A campaign is chock-full of Truth.

  12. @ more of the same
    Yes of course, silence is an “intelligent response” to what I said about the Chick-Fil-A campaign. Many times, one is left silent in the face of Truth. As the truth was clearly pointed out, there’s really no need for debate. Silent contemplation is the most intelligent response to my posts about the matter. You have the correct view.

  13. @Sean
    If you don’t like my comments, then go through “OD” and click the links* at so many of my posts and learn more about the world you live in. I include many links to many very interesting, informative, and compelling articles about a whole range of subjects/topics. Enough links to keep one busy for a long time. If one is truly curious and truly interested in timely and important matters.
    * I also include in so many of my posts, excellent google search terms. Search terms and links that can open a whole new world of understanding for any reader truly curious and truly interested.

  14. I never said “the truth is in me”. Not once. Ever. Not here at “OD”. Not anywhere. Still, as far as the Chick-Fil-A campaign is concerned, I have the correct view.

  15. This thread of commentary is supposed to be about the Chick-Fil-A campaign, not about me, or anyone else. Let’s debate the Chick-Fil-A matter. If not, let’s call it a day.

  16. How does a man no what a lairs point of view really is? you are a proven liar, you have no point of view but lies and anti White propaganda

  17. you are the queen of thread drift slow joe the jew troll. you don’t like this thread drift because you have been called on your proven track record of lies and propaganda

  18. Article :”The Times of the Season in Armageddonville”
    Another viewpoint concerning the Chic-Fil-A matter. Not necessarily mine, but the article has some interesting insights into the matter. I link to it because it presents another viewpoint(s). Again, not necessarily my own. I agree with some things the author says, disagree with other things. That’s besides the point. The point is to get another viewpoint. One can only benefit from it, even if one disagrees with the author. We all learn from debate — true debate, not ad-hominem slurs.


    If link doesn’t work, go to “truthseeker.co.uk”. Article is dated Aug 2nd. Many times,”Les Visible” says things I disagree with, sometimes he’s off the wall. Still, in this article, I think there’s much there that can add to the debate in a way we can all learn something new.

  19. What debate? You either support BRA and cultural marxism or you don’t. You support the govt forcing an alien morality on us or you don’t. Any part of cultural marxism you support aides the other branches.

    That’s the long and the short of it.

  20. Never said I support BRA or the government. Not on this thread or any thread any anytime here at “OD”. Never, or any other website, never. Never said I support gay marriage either. I do not.

    Marriage was destroyed by White heterosexual “Christian” America. White Christian Americans agitated for “easy divorce”, then they got divorced in droves ; That undermined and usurped the institution of marriage : That’s what I said. Gays and lesbians would never even think to agitate for marriage if White Christian heterosexual America had upheld Holy Matrimony. But, they didn’t. They wanted it easy. They got what they wanted : A do your own thing culture/society.
    If Chick-Fil-A company executives are so concerned about marriage, how come they never campaigned against “easy divorce” laws? That has caused more destruction to the institution of marriage than any other single thing. That can’t be truly denied.

  21. Da troof!

    Chick-fil-A thing is fascinating. I bet it is being monitored by other private companies.
    As the demographic drift of hispanicization and Africanization (are those things words?) continues more companies may find that catering to rich or conservative working class whites is a good strategy. There’s no reason why they couldn’t find ways to show their true colors without crossing a boundary into legal jeopardy. Opposing this or that policy is a good targeted way to poison discourse. Rahm and Mikie really fouled up. Opposing gay marriage is a perfectly respectable political stance. There are critically important social structures that are undermined if gays can get hitched. When that lesbian strategist attacked Ann Romney for being a rich housewife there was picture released of her adopted nigger pet kid and her wifband (another dykie
    lawyer.) two lesbians adopt a Somalicoon and then get divorced. It’s a mockery of travesty to allow twisted shrews like her to ape a biological family and bring over a kid who will Likely become savage later in life.

  22. Look at divorce laws and look at when and where this company was founded. It’s quite admirable to see a company risk custom and aprobation over a political issue. Highly unusual. They are also challenging a couple of Metropolitan Jewish mayors. The sociological implications are interesting. Rahm and Bloomberg represent the triumph of the Yids. They should have stfu about people opposing gay marriage.

  23. Joe says:
    “If Chick-Fil-A company executives are so concerned about marriage, how come they never campaigned against “easy divorce” laws? That has caused more destruction to the institution of marriage than any other single thing. That can’t be truly denied.”

    From what I’ve read the company promotes family values and contributes a lot of money to charities reflecting their positions. Beyond that they provide husbands and wives with tremendous opportunities to own and run thriving businesses at a minimal investment. This is something real, substantial, not just empty rhetoric.

    Lack of finances is a HUGE contributing factor in the divorce rate.

    Wiki: Business modelChick-fil-A uses a model significantly different from other restaurant franchises, notably in retaining ownership of each restaurant. Chick-fil-A selects the restaurant location, builds it, and pays the rent, while retaining ownership. Whereas franchisees from competing chains need about $2 million to operate a franchise, Chick-fil-A franchisees need only a $5,000 initial investment to become an operator. The company gets 10,000-25,000 applications from potential franchise operators for 60-70 slots they open each year. Chick-fil-A gets a larger share of revenue from its franchises than other chains, but the formula works well for operators — franchisees make an average of $190,000 per year. In 2010 Chick-fil-A took the industry lead in average sales per restaurant, making an average of $2.7 million per restaurant in 2010 (McDonald’s was second with $2.4 million per restaurant).

  24. Re: “White Christian Americans agitated for ‘easy divorce’, then they got divorced in droves; That undermined and usurped the institution of marriage”:

    So that’s your new, revisionist history of the divorce epidemic in America — that it’s the fault of the Christian whites, not the Judeo secularists?

  25. However it is a good, valid point: that the Chick-fil-A ownership is inconsistent overlooking divorce.

  26. It’s a non usurious business model too. Whether you want to do business with them or not as franchisee they sound like very honest folk.

  27. Mosin Nagant: The divorce rate in this country sky rocketed far before Chic Fillet was ever though of, so that’s a bullshit point. Moreover, I’m sure the owner is against easy divorce as well, but that wasn’t the topic of that particular comment and in all honesty, any thing he would have said about divorce would have been ignored anyway.

    Putting all that aside though, we have to start somewhere. Someday and someplace the line has to be drawn if it ever will be drawn. We can’t wait until we are all saints and we don’t have to. We can take action to put our own houses in order (which we should) AND take action to correct past wrongs against us. Certain accusers appear on sites to cause a feeling of hopelessness in the cause. Yes, whites are to blame just as Esau is blamed for giving up his birthright…but Esau should has strangled the deceiver when he found out he’d been bamboozled.

    The bigger point here, IMO, is that it’s a successful company that is bucking the Marxist, tyrannical PC dogma. This CANNOT be tolerated by the left. The left intends to destroy the white family and “gay marriage” is just one more battering ram they’ve rolled into position.

  28. @Mosin
    Never said “Judeos” didn’t play a role. Just because a Judeo says or does something, doesn’t mean you have to go along with the program. Even if the program is made legal: easy divorce, abortion, etc.
    White Christian Americans [ I use word to mean to whole range : Sincere, nominal, indifferent] have to take responsibility for the state of things in the country at some point. That is, if White America truly wants to make a change for the better. It’s just basic commom-sense: taking responsibility. Not taking responsiblitity is a way of handing power over to other groups, “judeos”, “freemasons”, etc . Taking responsibility is fundamental to leadership [ true leadership] and to making a fundamental change.

    @ Darin Williams
    Its’ not a job for me in the least to shoot off common-sense, intelligent posts to “OD”. It comes natural to me. There’s no law against 24/7 common-sense and intelligence. Thank you for your participation in this discussion. You brought up a good point that needed to be addressed. Ciao.

  29. “The divorce rate in this country sky rocketed far before Chic Fillet was ever though of, so that’s a bullshit point. Moreover, I’m sure the owner is against easy divorce as well, but that wasn’t the topic of that particular comment and in all honesty, any thing he would have said about divorce would have been ignored anyway.”

    I said it was a valid point. Whenever whoever defends traditional marriage and overlooks the divorce issue they are being inconsistent, if not hypocritical.

  30. How is divorce easy? It’s a financial extraction from the man’s pocket.

    For most men divorce is tremendously upsetting and destructive. Kids lost, half your money. Noone signed up for that. It’s probably a direct result of female suffrage.

  31. @ John
    You’re mixing up apples and oranges. You’re doing it on purpose to deflect from the main point.

    “Easy Divorce” refers to being able to get divorced at the drop at a hat. That’s what the discussion is about. You know it. Stop deflecting. What men are going through after divorce is a separate issue.

  32. women drive divorce. feminist and other leftist wanted easy divorce laws, they got easy divorce laws and women have responded to them. I clearly remember churches speaking out on the topic as a younger man, and the divorce epidemic hit Christians later then secular people, and still to a slightly less degree then more secular couples.

    Saying divorce is the fault of White Christian men like joe tries to imply is counter to every study on the topic there is, and you can be pretty sure the people against queer marriage are also personally against divorce as well.

    it’s a bullshit enlargement form the anti Christian anti White joe
