Because back in what historians refer to as "The Day" slaves had to feed themselves and so they adapted. What was available to them? Chickens. Now, I know this is gonna sound crazy but, white people eat chicken too ... SHOCKER!

I believe this is because of how the media portrays black people. The media constantly refers to black people and chicken. It's ignorant and annoying but whether people choose to believe the stereotypes is their own choice. It looks like Paula Dean makes some delicious chicken and she's as white as they come lol
It's a stereotype and therefore not right, but I do have to say (and I'm from the South so I know some fried chicken, LOL) but older black women can make the best chicken. As for your question, for far too many years the black community were primarily on farms and such where the one meat they could afford to raise was chickens, so they ate a lot of it; while white folks were able to have beef, lamb, and such.
