So a man in Kentucky erected a mannequin of President Obama eating a watermelon.
He claims it isn't racist, just a joke.
I can see how this is funny if you hate black people and your sense of humor reflects that stupidity. But if you remove racism from the equation, what's the joke? Is watermelon inherently hilarious? Someone help me out. Surely someone's compiled a book of funny jokes that look racist and sound racist but aren't racist.
The mannequin's master craftsman says, "I don't know how other people will take it." And that "he don't talk. Don't make no smart comments." He insists the watermelon is there because Obama "might get hungry." He says the statue is popular, so that can't be a bad reflection on Obama.
Yeah, nothing racist about any of that.
All of the crap defenses racists put forth point to one impenetrable truth — that even they know what they believe in is too vile to openly express.
How disgusting do you have to be to live like that?
