I bet Podesta would like to take a bite out of the little melon.


What does your statement imply or mean?
Remember baseless accusations are very not allowed on ATS.

If it is not near a Detroit firehouse then it is probably OK.

Why are watermelons bad? And fried chicken? I never figured that out. Both are standard southern foods. How did they get made into negative stereotype foods?

Long history.

Lucas doesn't look black. He looks Hispanic. It's not racist towards black people, but watermelon pickers. And besides there were two fruits, so it had to counter act the "racism" context.

If he is black, then he is half or maybe a third as he isn't that dark (no offense). That'd should make it 1/2 or 1/3 racist.

They are not . In the South . Just to the Northerners and Foreigners . Everyone here (GASP even the Russians) loves watermelons and fried chicken.

They should’ve dressed him up as a piece of fried chicken or a can of grape soda.

Looks to me like the folks making a big deal about this are so-called "conservatives" or "alt-right" or "Trumpinistas" to me.

You guys are making a bigger deal among yourselves than anyone actually left-leaning...

Such is the alt-right echo chamber though....

...whatever you gotta tell yourselves to reinforce your beliefs I guess.

I asked myself the same question.

The people on here the most up in arms seem to be the anti progressive/Trump/conservative crowd.

Seems they got race baited pretty badly.

This thread is proof positive of that...

I wouldn't recommend that. Especially if Hillary is there.

Only to comment on the ridiculousness of it, which is typical. The very first reply got it right - manufactured outrage. A lone nutjob in youtube land creates a nonsense video about fox being racist because a latino kid is in a watermelon costume, it gets dozens of views, and you pick it out to feign your outrage at "us liberals". Give me a break.

The only ones having racist inclinations are the ones reacting to a kid in a watermelon costume. It’s the first thing their minds race to.

Does that include all the right-wingers here that are busy losing their collective #? Man...talk about triggered!

Of course there's nothing offensive about this video but a few random Twitter users who get triggered seem to trigger other people for some reason.

Always being mad or outraged over the smallest and pettiest crap must get exhausting.


But it's good for distracting them from WINNING something!

It has to be an oversight to let a black kid wear a homemade water Mellon costume. Only when you see racism everywhere.
It has to be racism, no other explanation.


In what one would hope was just a terrible oversight, Fox & Friends this weekend aired a Halloween segment that featured children in various cute costumes -- including a black child dressed as a watermelon slice.



A homemade Halloween costume is RACIST. I guess watermelon is off the costume for black kids for ever.


While the clip is racking up attention online, it's only the latest in a string of uncomfortable situations for Fox News: On Saturday, the New York Times revealed that the network renewed now ex-host Bill O'Reilly's contract despite knowing that he'd recently issued a $32 million payout to a sexual harassment accuser.
www.aol.com... 251798/


People reacted using twitter and were reacting harshly-one said it was overt racism or tone deaf racism.


Online, viewers reacted harshly over the costume choice, with one person tweeting, "Overt racism, foolish racism, or tone deaf racism?' Take your pick, it's still racism."



.


We now know that Fox News is literally Hitler.
