Black people and their undying love for watermelon is a racist stereotype with roots embedded in slavery. Which is why many Black people refuse to even enjoy the refreshing and delicious treat, in public anyway. However, there may be a way to get your watermelon fix without the unspoken discomfort of being the but of a racist joke. How you ask?

This soda hit the shelves around 2009 and have been offending folks ever since. I couldn’t find any information detailing if they were still being sold, but something tells me that they’ve been pull from the shelves.
