    Who buys individually sliced watermelon that`s been sitting next to a heat lamp? :/ Fresh watermelon is cheaper and tastes so much better!

    The only thing racist about this post is the ignorant moron who posed the question. Yes, there is cuisine known as soul food. I live in Detroit. I am not African American, but fried chicken with waffles and greens finished with banana cream pie or watermelon is the bomb. Get out of your little sheltered world with your small mind.

    Umm Hello stores set up display products by what is sold most in the area! This is obviously what the customers can decide whether they are black or not. Who dosent like those together in the summer? All this " That`s Racist" crap on here is annoying, it is what it is.

    The display is not racist.

    The fact that someone would find racism in something that clearly is not says one of two things:

    1) They are overly sensitive as they try to deny the racism that they, themselves, possess.


    2) They have an agenda that requires them to be `offended` in order to qualify their attempts of intimidation and extortion of money from someone with large pockets. (example: Jesse Jackson)

    It`s science. The juice and sugar in the melon cuts the salt and grease from the chicken allowing one to eat more chicken. I still haven`t figured out why it`s a stereotype when all peoples find it delicious. It`s like saying Jews love doughnuts and Chinese love apples

    It`s kind of interesting, the people who see racism in this are oversensitive douchebags. The people who find it kind of funny(Me) are sort of racist and prone to thinking in stereotypes for humor purposes. The people who say "THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS, I`M WHITE AND EAT CHICKEN AND WATERMELON ALL THE TIME!!!" are the biggest undercover racists on the planet. LOL
