From an AP story about Los Alamitos mayor Dean Grose, who sent out an email picture depicting the White House lawn planted with watermelons under the title "No Easter egg hunt this year":

Grose says he accepts that the e-mail was in poor taste and has affected his ability to lead the city. Grose said he didn't mean to offend anyone and claimed he was unaware of the racial stereotype linking black people with eating watermelons.

Uh huh.  He just happened to pick watermelons randomly.  What a dick.
