I mean, yeah. There are pretty racist things tied to African American stereotypes; one of them being a watermelon. It’s the equivalent to having a dark skinned racer and calling it the “fried chicken” skin because s/he also happens to be wearing a shirt with a chicken bone on it. Maybe it’s unintentional, but it should be pretty obvious that most people will make the connection. That specific racist stereotype doesn’t apply to white or Asian people.
