Racist T-shirts

Just the other day, I saw a white girl with a shirt on that says: Wait…I like chicken and watermelon too. It was a vintage tee with a chicken standing on top of a watermelon. I laughed to myself at first glance but I actually stopped to think about it. Black people loving watermelon and chicken is one of the most common stereotypes in America. I shirt really made a statement but I wondered why she had it on. Was it because she was eating with black people? Was she dating the black guy with her? Did she think it was funny?Or was she simply trying to make a statement? Either way, it made a statement to me….in a positive light.
