Watermelon Seed Banned as Racist

Even melon seeds can be accused of racism:

SACRAMENTO — Colusa County officials are defending their display at the California State Fair after a black couple complained that a caricature of a smiling watermelon seed was racist.

The “Waldo Watermelon Seed” drawing was removed this week after the couple said the image evoked negative stereotypes about blacks.

Displays honoring cucumber, pumpkin and tomato seeds managed to escape what the county attorney called “a cloud of unintended racism.”

If you think the climate is crazy now, imagine what it would be like with Obama in the White House. His campaign has already shown its willingness to eat its own over comparably ludicrous racism charges.
