What's New in Racist Folk Art

Quoting this story from Westport, Massachusetts:

Some residents in Westport are not happy about sculptures in their neighbor's yard. One piece in particular is drawing complaints because it depicts a racist stereotype. At his home on a quiet stretch of Charlotte White Road, Roger Chandanais has erected a sculpture depicting a black woman carrying a watermelon. [...]

But Chandonais says he doesn't think it is a racial stereotype. "No, I don't," he says. "I got a white man there too, no black people ever complain about a white man." Chandonais says despite his neighbors complaints, he will not take it down.


Looks like we have the first submission to Mjolnir magazine.
