According to The Huffington Post, 35-year-old Alvin Kenneth “Chico” Welch Jr. is accused of beating Joshua Andrew Heinz to death with a baseball bat after they disagreed on carving techniques.

“The incident happened last Saturday night at a football watching party at Heinz’ house in Jacksonville, Fla.

Welch was cutting meat for a take-home plate when he started arguing with Heinz over the proper way to slice it…The argument got out of hand and Welch allegedly hit Heinz, 31, with the bat.”

    “Man”? That’s a generous description to say the least….

    Actually by black people’s standards, this was a very good reason to murder someone. Usually they do it for a crack rock or because the other person was wearing the wrong color that day.

    Hmm, perhaps the real motivation is that Ooker #2 was extra ‘hongry’ and decided to tenderize Ooker #1 before bar-b-queing him.

    Come now. I’m sure there’s not a one of you white folks that haven’t been forced to bludgeon to death one of your friends over a disagreement in cooking techniques. After all, they’re just like us with a different paintjob. I know it’s true because the media tells me so.

    There are basic rules of etiquette at an African-American cookout that white folks simply can’t understand. It all depends on whose food stamps bought the meat, and/or who stole the barbeque grill. A breach of these rules is serious business, necessitating the appearance of knives, guns, and bludgeons. Emily Post has covered this extensively.

    It would make more sense if his friend was Vegan….
