I don’t understand a lot of the racial slur stuff. I’ve never understood the watermelon thing for instance.

Would it be racist to compare a white person to a polar bear or to Casper the ghost?

If we were a minority. Watermelon is an easy thing to grow in the south...so are Greens. Both I eat with enjoyment.

You cannot really compare a White person to a polar bear. The skin of a polar bear is very dark, and the hair is actually clear and reflects light. So your comparing a White person’s skin color to hair.
