Good news: the first black president has been ousted due to to poor performance. Bad news: its McDonalds president, not ours.
Donald Thomas: out

Same Store Sales, red arrow designates point at which Mr. Thompson took over
Butt thats not the worst part: Not only did McDonalds fire their first black president, they replaced him with a white Guy, a Brit who bears an unsettling resemblance to Simon Cowell. Tell me thats not racist.
