Cauliflower is racist also.

Don't say that in New York.

It's apparently a "Colonial" vegetable.


" York " is Colonial also isn't it ?



Heh.

You're right.

Can't say "New York" now either.


You had better start making a list. I will start you off.

Boston
Birmingham
Hampshire
England ( New England that is )
Cleveland

You can carry on.

I am old school and will say whatever I want to say. A lot of things offend me I just move on. I am not crazy about being called a cracker or honky either just because I am while. Watermelon to me is something eaten, get over it.

Only if the waiter is a non-binary gender-neutral androgynous person of color.



What about seedless?

Fried chicken is also racist towards black people.


It is unless the black people are upset because the cafeteria isn't serving enough fried chicken, and then it's perfectly acceptable. Remember Cornell Uni and the students getting upset over the cafeteria not serving actual authentic ethnic foods and enough ethnic foods? Yep. The black students were upset that fried chicken wasn't offered enough.


"I love my fried chicken, and my fried chicken loves meeeeee" - My black co-worker, when it was near lunch time.

I had to give him a double take. I think he loves fried chicken more than he hates it being a stereotype?

I dunno, we all just laughed and went to lunch.

No, its not. And I will continue to use the word WATERMELON for as long as I want to.

Yeah. Not sure I ever actually knew anyone who got upset about it but that's a pretty strange thing to get offended over. I don't know anyone who doesn't like watermelon. And I'm white.

Watermelon Is A Racist Term In America.

Not in the sane South .
Watermelon and fried chicken is a staple for everyone here.
Especially in the summer months.
The other insane parts of the country I can't speak for.

Then theres the "fanny pack"

wiki


A fanny pack (American English) or bum bag (British English) is a small fabric pouch usually secured with a zipper and worn by use of a strap around the hips or waist. ... It means you're American and don't understand the slightly risqué usage of the word "fanny" here in the United Kingdom.

I’m going to be very careful about what I say about this, as I’ve recently been banned from another site for my comment on a similar post.

If she was saying this because the kids were currently eating watermelon, I don’t see what the big deal is. If she said this just out of the blue because the kids were black, that’s a bit insensitive.

Either way, I highly doubt we’re being told the whole story.

In the middle east, "watermelon" has been a put-down, an accusation, that a person is only outwardly a muslim (Green) but is really just a Marxist (red) deep down...

Edit to add:

I think this was used against pan-arabists like the Ba'ath party, etc. Not just your neighbor who parks in your spot.

Museum staff said "No food, no drink, no water bottles".

Was Jussie Smollett part of this group?
