Poor Lucas.  I was watching that just now, and couldn't believe the way they treated the strawberry.  He was crushed, and no vodak either.

Oops it was Sienna that was crushed.  I didn't really think much about Lucas being a watermelon.  I cried for the girl that didn't get into the segment like she wanted.

Is Lucas black?  He looks more Hispanic to me.  I suppose we will find out soon because undoubtedly his family will be on every single talk show on the circuit within the next couple weeks.

I've seen black kids before. That's not a black kid.

I'm gay, though, so I'm going to go ahead and be offended by the little girl dressed like a rainbow emoji. Because that's appropriating my culture or something.

This is pretty much everyone in this entire country right now.  If every problem was solved tomorrow, people would invent problems, just to keep themselves busy.  You're all losers.

Well, I am too, but at least I'm open and upforth about it.  I tell it like it is, unlike that Crooked Hillary.  Don't you think she looks tired?

Rawstory is so over-the-top anti-right that I kind of cringe when clicking over there.  This particular outrage is a non-story and it detracts from their credibility, making me tend to ignore them when they maybe do have something to say worth hearing.

Yes but dark Hispanics aren't the ones who are associated with watermelon as an offensive stereotype. You actually have to fit the appearance of a stereotype in order for the visual stereotype to be offensive.  Just like it would be stupid to say that Wentworth Miller doing a KFC commercial would be racially offensive.

For all the people pointing out that it's not actually that bad, context is important.

The fundamental problem is not so much the costume itself, it's who put him in the costume. When you spend 23 hours of your 24 hour cycle being racist shiatheads, people start assuming that every time you do something that COULD be racist, it IS racist.

It's not that the kid's in a watermelon costume. It's that we already know Fox News and its viewers are racists, so it's sort of hard to give them any benefit of the doubt on this particular segment.

Under normal circumstances, it's just a kid in a costume. When you add Fox News to the mix, though, it's difficult to believe it wasn't an intentionally racist signal to their racist viewers.

Way to whitesplain things... Do you think you can magically divine who is a "dark" Hispanic or a black guy by looking at them?
 
2017-10-22 11:45:09 AM  
That's...not at all racist. Like, even a little bit. I hate you, subby, for making me defend fox.
 
2017-10-22 11:45:43 AM  
Can someone explain the whole watermelon & black people & racism thing? How did watermelon get associated with black people to begin with? And how is it racist?

I mean, nobody really thinks the statement "Asian people eat a lot of rice" is racist - because they do - so I'm wondering what the deal is with watermelons. Do black people actually eat a lot of watermelons, or was it something that was made up to mock them, etc.?
