Republican Mayor Sends Hilarious Not-Racist White House ‘n Watermelon Joke

by Ken Layne

The mayor of a tiny Republican hamlet in Southern California’s Orange County — just across the 605 from Long Beach — thought it was super funny to send around a picture of the White House surrounded by a watermelon garden, because gosh, the watermelon is simply a very funny thing, in almost any setting. Watermelons! The very word is fun, and certainly not racist. There was also a caption on the funny picture, of watermelons surrounding the White House: “No Easter Egg Hunt this year.” Ha ha, because Muslims don’t celebrate Easter, right? (Sure, they celebrate Good Friday, but anyway ….)

Local businesswoman and city volunteer Keyanus Price, who is black, said Tuesday she received the e-mail from Mayor Dean Grose’s personal account on Sunday and wants a public apology.

“I have had plenty of my share of chicken and watermelon and all those kinds of jokes,” Price told The Associated Press. “I honestly don’t even understand where he was coming from, sending this to me. As a black person receiving something like this from the city-freakin’-mayor — come on.”

Dean Grose, mayor of this little shithole, Los Alamitos, has the usual response: Oh gosh never did I mean to suggest anything RACIAL, by this cheap fucktard racist “joke.” His actual weasel words went like this:

“Bottom line is, we laugh at things and I didn’t see this in the same light that she did,” Grose told the AP. “I’m sorry. It wasn’t sent to offend her personally — or anyone — from the standpoint of the African-American race.”

Honestly, these people need to be killed, all of them. This is what Eric Holder means when he speaks of the need for a frank discussion about racism in America.

In that case, I need to have a frank discussion with my boss, my upstairs neighbors. They’re not racist, I just really want to kill them.

Gopherit February 25, 2009 at 3:02 pm

Right. It’s the “I’m sorry you’re an overly-sensitive watermelon-eating negress…lighten up!” kind of apology. I wonder how many Bloods are within driving distance of that little shithole town….to show the mayor their “appreciation.”

Peanut Inspector February 25, 2009 at 3:03 pm

Ah, those California folks. They thought they were just making fun of Southerners (and we DO love our watermillions) — so it is really okay.

In Mayor Grose’s defense, he did send around a postcard of the Los Alamitos City Hall surrounded by bags of Wonder Bread last year.

AnnieGetYourFun February 25, 2009 at 3:05 pm

Now, if Michale Pollan had sent it out, we might have been able to read a different message into it.

Hamster February 25, 2009 at 3:05 pm

It almost looks like an ad for the nationally stirring Grow-And-Sell-Your-Own-Food-To-Pay-Fucking-Bills movement. Either way it does not bode well for the Repubtards.

sarcasticusername February 25, 2009 at 3:06 pm

oh black people like watermelon, and hey we have black people living at the white house now; obvioulsy painting the building black would have been racist and unfunny, but this is just harmless haha right. gee why would anyone find this hilarious picture offensive, why are black people and all other thinking people so darn sensitive all the time?

Doglessliberal February 25, 2009 at 3:06 pm

If we cannot kill them, can we spay/neuter anyone post-puberty and take away all their prepubescent children for reeducation?

This just makes me so exhausted. I saw this and just felt tired. Tired of this old, stupid SHIT. And I LOVE watermelons, dammit.

I don’t understand how this whole “blacks love chicken and watermelon” thing got started in the first place. Everybody loves chicken and watermelon, maybe not together in a KFC bowl, but if you don’t like chicken and then watermelon, there is something wrong with you.

Bypartizoa February 25, 2009 at 3:13 pm

Yes, of course. The mayor could just as easily chosen cantaloupe, since they would both be equally funny.

If he could have found a watermelon patch with dead monkeys in it, I am sure he would have used it.

Texan Bulldoggette February 25, 2009 at 3:15 pm

Hmmm….the only way it’s even remotely funny (which it isn’t) is the racist angle. His lame-ass apology just indicates he’s sorry he sent it to HER and how dare she get offended by it.

Isn’t this the same area where someone from the RNC sent Obama watermelon dollars, etc. during the GE?

TGY February 25, 2009 at 3:15 pm

But Barry can’t even *plant* watermelon because of all the arugula plots!

Gallowglass February 25, 2009 at 3:15 pm

I’m really not even sure what’s supposed to be the joke here. Is he saying that the Barry is like a 1930s Georgia black sharecropper who will grow watermelons on any available land? Is it that, because Barry is black, he craves watermelons so much that he has to grow a full crop on his lawn because the comercial supply is insufficient? If you take out the racial aspect of the joke it makes even less sense. Absent the black/watermelonphilia angle, this just seems Mayor-Adam-West-style crazy. And what do Easter eggs have to do with it? Can you not hide eggs in a watermelon patch? Or will the children be searching for watermelons instead?

Forget a “frank discussion”, someone buy these jackasses a joke book.

Assuming that this is the person discussed in the article (Keyanus Price is a fairly distinctive name), the Mayor may want to avoid offending Ms. Price. While she is a conservative Los Angeles business woman by day, at night her “alter ego emerges. The (35)-year-old becomes a jammer for the Orange County Roller Girls. She becomes … Brik Wall.

The moniker fits. Price stands 5-foot-6, weighs 165-pounds, has cinder block quadriceps and commands respect with a vice-grip handshake.”

Dear Republicans,

For future reference, when caught sending racist picture emails, the appropriate fake response is, “Oh, holy fucking shit! I didn’t even THINK of it that way! I was thinking ‘[insert barely feasible explanation here]‘. Goddamn it, I’m such a fucking idiot. I am really, really sorry – just forwarded it without thinking. Really, I’m a cocksucking motherfucking moron. I’m so, so incredibly sorry.”

That way, you still look like a dick, but a dick who is sorry about your dickhood.

Watermelon, fried chicken, shucking and/or jiving, government cheese, afro picks, sagging pants, rims, monkeys, golliwogs, blackface and anything Amos n Andy related, ribs, Buckwheat (the Rascal, not the grain), grillz, “Negro/colored” (as well as more traditional slurs: picaninny/coon/spook, etc) mammies, ‘do rags, welfare, drugs, overexaggerated lips and eyes, tragic attempts at ebonics…

The creepiest wingnuts I have ever met were from some little town in Orange Co. Upper middle class dudes in their 50′s who had a “rock” band playing classic rock covers. They thought they were the shyt. Spent thousands of dollars on things like imported hand wired UK amplifiers and satin Sgt Pepper costumes. Had professional “portraits” made of themselves in creepy Beatle wigs and stuff. And these were the type of wingnuts who honestly could not understand why all those people in NOLA didn’t simply gas up the Range Rover and find a nice hotel somewhere to wait out Katrina. Probably still to this day believe that WMDs in Saddam’s palace had 9/11 stencilled on them with a Vote For Kerry sticker on the box.

And so — I think I’m getting this — the watermelon is there because black people looooovvvvveeee watermelon, right? So what you’re saying is that we better watch out now that there’s a black person in the White House, ’cause he’s going to want his watermelon all over the place, right? No, it’s really funny.

Two black sharecroppers selling watermelons from a truck. Bought the melons for $1 each and sold them for $1 each. Missing a profit, one said to the other, “Guess we need a bigger truck.”

I know, my bad, very bad

You all know that SOUTHERN CA (think Reagan, Nixon etc.), and NORTHERN CA (as in Milk, etc.), are like two different states, right?
And don’t EVEN get me started on the Inland Empire.

[re=253057]DemmeFatale[/re]: Oh, you mean NorCal (Dan White) and SoCal (Tom Hayden)? Yeah, I’ve heard of it…

DemmeFatale February 25, 2009 at 8:42 pm

[re=253060]Bearbloke[/re]: Snark away, but the fact is that there is a BIG difference between NorCal and SoCal.

Nikki is in the GOP – the mayor rightfully asumed she was “one of the good ones.” Why is she now behaving like this is the first she’s heard of Republicans being a little uncomfortable with non-white people in power. (Um, it’s kinda their deal.)

Plus, he probably had a Dog the Bounty Hunter moment and thought he was Black. Which is understandable. Sometimes I forget I am not white and try to rent an apartment on Los Angeeles’ westside.

He totally didn’t realize he’d sent that to a black person, you can tell by how lame his response was – gee, that’s not how I meant it, like there’s any other way I could have meant it.

My (black, could seriously “pass”) grandmother lived in Los Alamitos, and when she died, my (black, marched with MLK, could definitely NOT “pass”) mother and I moved into her house for a while. In 1980-whatever, it was like, the whitest place in Southern California (just down the street from Disneyland!), and our neighbors were forever saying and doing the most ignorant things. My Mom HATED it there, and this is not going to surprise her at all, I can’t wait to tell her about it.

I thought Hopey being elected meant the end of racism? Yeah, right…

Los Alamitos – gateway to Stanton, having grown up in Long Beach, I know Los Al well. The Alamitos Naval Air Station’s runway is too short to be good for anything except supplying huge amounts of federal Barry bucks to the Los Al Schools to buy the military brats the best of everything. Which makes sense because the kids are short timers and continuity is impossible. But the resident retards reap all the same benefits for free. Barry could disappear the Mayor’s berg overnight with sharpie and a long over due order to close the base. It ain’t like it would cost him votes.

You guys are correct. Keyanus Price is a skater for the OC Roller Girls, skating under the name BRIK WALL! She is smart, successful, athletic and beautiful. She is a women who deserves much more respect from the mayor of Los Alamitos. Her teammates back her in her efforts to expose this indignity and we remain at her side on and off the track! VIVA OCRG! VIVA KEYANUS!

[re=253086]problemwithcaring[/re]: …and that’s why contemporary “Negro Republicans” are held in the same widespread disdain as “Fag Cabin Republicans”. I feel her outrage, but I still think she should choke on it just a little bit, just before switching parties…

dirtydeborahharry February 26, 2009 at 2:53 am

Boys … stop it with the anus jokes … in the word of Keyanus … “come on!” You know the mayor was wrong and her reaction to this indignity was right on! Sometimes black people need to make it “uncomfortable” for white people to get the message. I think the mayor is a little uncomfortable tonight!

All snark aside, how can you be that stupid and be in charge of anything? Much less a town. Boggles the mind.

Please tell me I’m not the first to point out the spectacularly absurd photo of the astute mayor and his fellow dignitaries from the city council. [www.ci.los-alamitos.ca.us] And WTF is going on inside tall guy’s suit?!? Los Alamitoans (please tell me that’s what they’re called) shouldn’t be surprised about the racism of their leadership considering they elected a religious cult from Arkansas….

And while you’re there, please do not miss the first item on the city’s site about their 28th annual “Race on the Base” 2009.

[re=252596]Gorillionaire[/re]: About your creepy wealthy wingnuts, my sister has the misfortune to be quite rich (smart divorce, good investments, owns nice low-budget rental property, etc.)

She and her husband, spry fit attractive white folk in their mid-60s who still have a lot of their money, have decided to quit going on cruises or to nice hotels. Why? Because *all the people on the cruises and in the nice resorts are stupid self-congratulatory dumb-as-shit “Let them eat cake!” clueless racist fucktards* and life is too short to spend *any* time in their company. What passes for “polite conversation” among all these Orange County and Central Coast patricians these days is enough to cause my sister and BIL to lose their lunch. The people they meet on cruises are the worst kind of insular smug hyper-American idiot. That old saying, “Born on third base; thinks he hit a triple!” is true of all of them.

I’ve even seen this. Down in San Diego for a day about a year ago, my husband and I decided to stop at the Hotel Del Coronado to enjoy the view and have a drink at sunset. Some Navy gala was also happening in the hotel at that time, so there were plenty of drunk flag officers and their spouses lurching around. No matter. Navy town. What do you expect?

But as I was washing up in the well-appointed bathroom, one of the Naval Officers’ wives, a hideous woman with a Rosie O’Donnell body and a glittery Michelle Bachmann smile, clad in an improbable and age-inappropriate Bob Mackie-type ballgown, lurched out of the next stall, stumbled up to me and began bellowing conspiratorially (yes, it’s possible) “WHADDAYOU MAKE OF ALL THIS *LIBERAL* SHIT??? WHERE DID ALL THIS *LIBERAL ANTIWAR SHIT* COME FROM? THAT’S WHAT *I* WANNA KNOW! WHERE IS THIS *SHIT* COMING FROM??”

No. She didn’t know me.
I hadn’t said anything to her.
I wasn’t dressed like some hippie.
No peace-sign earrings.
I have no idea why she chose *me* to listen to her rant.
I just treated her like she was crazy … although I really wanted to smile sweetly and say, “Oh, it’s just a necessary and natural corrective for too much *Conservative* shit!”

iolanthe February 27, 2009 at 12:20 pm

[re=252727]smashtheduck[/re]: This is true. California Assholes tend to cluster in Orange County, San Diego, tiny poor-white-trash OC enclaves within LA County like Lawndale, and our meth-producing backcountry towns near Bakersfield/Fresno, the Inland Empire, and the shittier parts of the mountains … everywhere that Southern Folk moved to during the Depression and the factory-work boom of the War Years.

The rest of the state is a Liberal powerhouse.

When everyone was doing the redneck ,gun toting , white trash, stereo type jokes about Gov Palin; where was the outrage!!! Everyone, including the white, the blacks and other minorities, need to lighten up. It was just a joke, a poor one, but still only a joke.
