California Mayor Steps Down After Sending Obama Watermelon Email

- By Bossip Staff

Posted by Bossip Staff

Racist jokes about Obama are still in style with some white folks:

Los Alamitos Mayor Dean Grose has stepped down as Mayor of Los Alamitos, CA after sending out this fake photo of watermelons on President Barack Obama’s White House front lawn. Grose’s email included the heading, “No Easter Egg hunt this year.”

“I think he’s saying that since there’s a black president, there will be no need to hunt for eggs since they’re growing watermelons in the front yard this year,” said Keyanus Price, an African American who was among those receiving the email. Price told Fletcher that she considers the email racist and offensive.

“What I’m concerned about is how can this person send an e-mail out like this and think it is OK?” Price said. “He’s putting the city into a bad place and he is a liability.”

Grose apologized to Price, city council members and others.

“It was just poor judgment on my part and I am deeply sorry,” he said.

SMH. Well, we know who he voted for. Although a move in the right direction, Barack Obama as President won’t automatically kill the racism and ignorance that’s embedded in America.

    this is so sad, to think that he actually thought he would get away with this. If he did not think he could get away with this he would not have sent it out. How bold to send it to a black person….this is truly sad. We come so far but not far at all. This is why we should never get tired of talking about and speaking out against racism. SMDH
