    What's racist about it? I'm white and I'd probably fall for that trap.

    Watermelon is really expensive here, I don't really like watermelon but I like it enough to try to eat some and then decide that I don't really like it that much.

    And before you ask, I ****ing hate all other types of melon. Rockmelon? Get out of here you dipshit

    well duh! I like fried chicken and I'm white. it's not racist to a white guy because hey watermelon has no meaning to us except as a delicious albeit messy fruit.

    I guess the "white" trap would feature a pair of penny loafers or "how to dance/play sports other than hockey" instruction book

    But I still don't get it. Since when are watermelons specifically a black person food.

    I dunno. It's some American stereotype that black people love watermelons and fried chicken. Judging from this thing I found through google it's a pretty old stereotype.

    If it were KFC, or some sort of purple drink maybe it would racist but this would probably capture maybe Vegetarians and people who like delicious fruits

    Watermelon Stereotype is just as racist as the Fried Chicken stereotype.

    It's done out of racism, nothing more.
