Here is the one of the most famous stereotypes about African Americans. It is said that African Americans love to eat watermelon and fried chicken. This was past down from ages ago back in the slavery days. The reason why is because chicken was the cheapest animal to buy and watermelon was the easiest to grow. African Americans also loved watermelon because back when the slavery was still going on they would be working in the fields and they would get dehydrated very easily, and watermelon was said to be refreshing and doesn't dehydrate the mouth.
In real life, I have asked many of my African American friends and they do like fried chicken but they don’t understand why it is said, “African Americans love fried chicken”. You see White people; Asian people, Chinese people, and any other race eating fried chicken. Why is it only African Americans?
