Knuckle Dragger Award: Mayor Dean Grose


I do not believe that any adult in the United States can claim that they did not know that this postcard picture was racist.  The cartoon the other day was bad.  This has no other meaning than a racist jab at our President.

Los Alamitos, California Mayor Dean Grose sent this picture out in emails the other day -- WTF?

"Grose confirmed to the AP that he sent the e-mail to Price and said he didn't mean to offend her. He said he was unaware of the racial stereotype that black people like watermelons.

He said he and Price are friends and serve together on a community youth board.

"Bottom line is, we laugh at things and I didn't see this in the same light that she did," Grose told the AP. "I'm sorry. It wasn't sent to offend her personally - or anyone - from the standpoint of the African-American race."
