"..If people can 'take back' the N word, which has no redeeming qualities, then take back the watermelon..." ^ this is such a divisive and antagonistic statement [Edited 7/17/19 12:51pm]

please, if after my explaining you see it as 'divisive & antagonistic' then you are a part of the problem.

Context refer to post #16

.

The N word has no redeeming qualities, but there are people who call it a 'term of endearment'

.

But the watermelon, which from it's origins whether you believe in Creation or Evolution is nothing but good, and is a fruit of Africa, people continue to allow others to cause it in the 'chicken & watermelong' stupid stereotype to make them react, instead of throwing back pride in all that watermelon is.

.

Stop reacting. Stop needing to be offended by something that is not offensive. Stop giving people power to make you react. Take that shit and flip it.

.

Life is like eating a watermelon, you know you're going to get some seeds; just spit them out and take another bite.

Isn't that what you are doing in this very thread?
So stop trying to get others to react, and stop telling others how they should react

.

Too many people in various areas of life let a 'spirit' of rejection, tragic, pain, offense fuel their lives
Life will be over before you know it, don't look back in regret of letting others dictate how you view the world.

Be offended... or gain perspective wisdom and real soul empowerment

i NEVER told anyone how to react or how they should react...that was YOU..you definitrly are confused...and you seem to think because i dont have the same views as you (of course i wouldnt) that "im a problem"...its clear youre the one reacting, instead of allowing people to have their own ideas and views...

passive

stop deflecting from the real discussion. If you choose offense to my original posts then that is your issue.

Oh wow, I had never heard of a Watermelon & Racist connection before either - I am an Aussie so guess that is no suprise, but I had to google it & still don't quite "get it". But it seems to me the Watermelon thing is an Instagram "challenge" right now and I dont think anything is intended by it? I doubt Madonna would have entered into anything racist otherwise or subject her children to that.

Thank you Prince for every note you left behind 💜

Saw it and was like that is a skirt and a dress in a perspective twist. I don’t have Instagram nor Facebook, so was clueless this was a thing. As a long time fan of Madonna and very “Black” I was like rolleyes non story ....next.

Madonna is more likely to have watermelon in a skirt-shaped slice on hand than pizza or pie.

Wow, people nowadays make a drama out of everything, I guess...

How, the ever loving fuck, are watermelons racist? That’s the most fucked up thing I’ve heard this whole week...so far!
