I dont get the purpose of the watermelon and fried chicken reference. What does that have to do with bad choices? The whole thing was ill-thought out.
It's stereo-typing and its stupid. Watermelon happens to be my favorite summer fruit. I eat a metric ton of it every season. I'm Irish, German and Austrian. I'm as pasty white as it gets. Go figure.
I guess that’s because the stereotype for decades was that African-Americans love fried chicken and watermelon...that must make me African-American because I LOVE eating both.
Black people are stereotypes as having a specific food culture they do not stray from, some considering it like immature, others akin to giving peanuts to chimps.
So, they love particularly watermelon and chicken, but I also think it is because of their specific metabolism, the one that allowed them to retain water on slave ships and have lean muscle mass. I have G6PD and cannot eat most vegetables.
Its a stereotype that is accurate
Blacks at least where Im from...Mississippi
Do indeed have a universal fondness for fried chicken and watermelon
I suppose it comes from blacks always raised their own chickens from slaves row to sharecropping and 200 acres and a mule days
And watermelon is ubiquitous where blacks were concentrated
It should be noted southern whites like pretty much the same foods
Aside from carp...although now fancy restaurants serve high priced carp
I eat mullet
