The joke is on you.

Some of you white folks like to joke about us Negroes and watermelon. Well, as it turns out, you white men (and women) of a certain age might want to head to your local supermarket and pick up a few slices.

"Men hoping for some fireworks in their love life this Fourth of July may want to skip the burgers and beer at the barbecue and eat plenty of…instead.

It turns out, watermelon may be a natural Viagra, says a researcher. That’s because the popular summer fruit is richer than experts believed in an amino acid called citrulline, which relaxes and dilates blood vessels much like Viagra and other drugs meant to treat erectile dysfunction (ED).

Until recently, many scientists thought most of the citrulline was in the watermelon rind. But now, experts have discovered that there is more citrulline in the edible part than previously believed.

The amino acid citrulline is converted into the amino acid arginine. This is a precursor for nitric oxide, and the nitric oxide, a blood vessel relaxer that enhances circulation to all your vital parts.

A typical 4-ounce serving of watermelon (about 10 watermelon balls) has about 150 milligrams of citrulline." [Source]

Who is laughing now?

Field, you got mail. Please check it right now and read it. Thank you.

dear Granny, why won't you share your e-mail with us? u r segregating yourself.

LOL. This is a funny post...No one believes this. Not only that, Science is wrong 'most' of the time. When have you ever met a 'good' doctor who knew what he/she was doing? They are like good Mechanics--hard to find. I don't trust medical science.

Balony. I have been eating watermelon for over 6 decades and it hasn't done a damn thing for me except give me diabetes and make me addicted to it.

They are going to find out someday when we get some decent researchers that watermelon is only good for a certain race.

Of course, it has to be said in a politically correct way. Otherwise, folks like Field will cry "Racism".

Nice post Field, you got a two-fer on stereotypes.

BTW, you should have been a little clearer you have to EAT the watermelon. PilotX has probably been dong something else:

Field, you depress the hell out of me. I want to be just a regular ordinary citizen who is Black and not discriminated against. It is so depressing to be Black in America. I am sure Obama can relate.

Dammit! Why must you always bring up race? Can't you take a break? Enough already.

Fyi, in the previous thread, somebody claimed that Jews started the whole damn slavery trade. I am stunned that a Jew would do that! I find it hard to believe. However, I DO believe that there were Blacks involved in the slave trade.

Hence, we should forgive American Whites because it wasn't their fault. It was our fellow brothers and Jews who did it. With this in mind, joking about Negroes and watermelons would seem irrelevant. Would you not agree, Mr Field?

Come on, admit it... Whites aren't that bad. Actually, we are a Godsend for the world. Where would the modern world be without us? Look at PilotX, he is a pilot for a major white airline and he is paid well. He would not have that job if it weren't for Whites making sure there is equality for all.

But now you want to discriminate against us? Why? After all we have done for you, you want to discriminate against us? You even have a black President who is a century ahead of time. That was done by us...What more do you want?

Even YOU, Mr Field, would not be a lawyer without good white folks making it possible for you. We are for you, not against you.

Where is your gratitude and sense of appreciation for everything that has been done for you? Where is the love, Brother? We have worked our asses off for you. There is a black justice on the Supremes who is married to a ww, and you are still not satisfied.

Mr Field, out of curiosity, what would make you happy, if that is possible? It is obvious that Granny is addicted to unhappiness, but I have HIGH hopes for you, Mr. Field. Can we talk?

I hate watermelon, my better half loves it so I go to the farmers market each weekend to buy some,even the black watermelon which is expensive but is suppose to be super sweet. Anyway Field,you may be on to something because my efforts pay off.

Granny, I can't find your blog, where is it and when are you going to start up AGAIN? Hurry up, your are beginning to try my patience.

BTW, you need to come clean about where you live. It's East Oakland, isn't it? Tell the truth. For once make your blog name proud with Truth that Stands on its own merits.

Nevertheless, I want you to know that I love you like a sister and enjoy reading your comments even though they aren't true.

Black Watermelon? what is that? Did a brother invent that one? just asking.

Anonymous said...

Brother Field, why did you make Hollis Johnson a HN? The brother has done nothing wrong. Just because he supports and loves Paula Deen as his sister doesn't make him a HN.

I have told you before, Negro that Paula is innocent and it is folks like you who are making things worse. You did this shit with Don Imus for merely saying what black folks say to each other every day about their hair.

You need to get a grip because you are causing racial tension, which is unnecessary. You are depressing everybody. This is post-racial time. Wake up and smell the coffee.

Yeah, that's right. That's why cameras, phones, t.v.'s, hi-fi's, planes, boats, antibiotics, satnavs, spaceships, modern surgical techniques, cars, computers, - none of those things work - 'cuz "science is wrong most of the time".

And that's also why average life expectancy has increased from 49 to 82 in just over 100 years, because doctors are "wrong most of the time".

"And that's also why average life expectancy has increased from 49 to 82 in just over 100 years, because doctors are "wrong most of the time"."

That's right. Doctors ARE "wrong most of the time." Life expectancy has increased, but so has health problems, and the ability to pay for those health bills. Science doesn't know what the hell it's doing. It discovers something in watermelon, and makes a claim its research that it helps you to get an erection. It also claimed that drinking three glasses of milk a day helped to build strong bones and teeth. Today, science is uncertain about milk. It's one of the biggest controversies ever. Science lacks wisdom, ethics and compassion for people. Don't believe me? Get sick enough to end up in the hospital and see how you are treated by health professionals. And, if you are 'lucky', you won't catch an infection or disease, before you leave the hospital!.... THAT'S SCIENCE, FOR YA!

As far as all the technology: i-phones, smart phones, ipads, tv's, texting, big screens, etc....they are making humans dumber and more isolated from each other. As humans, we are just as stupid and unaware of who we are as ever. It's just that we have the technology today to spread our ignorance and stupidity faster!

Albert Einstein: "There are two things that are infinite: the universe and human stupidity. And I am not sure about the former."

See as so many men are so into each other these days, maybe they should just choose bottled water to satisfy their thirst.

It would be healthier, and a lot more wholesome. But science has not advanced that far to make such a claim. Maybe in a couple of years after they 'research' it. Then we'll be in the post post modern era, the post-racial era, and post America as we know it today.

My God, I take two weeks vacation to spend time with Field and FN folks and nobody is around. TNB.

I'm cutting my vacation short and going back to work. I should have known that Negroes are unpredictable and undependable. Where is Field? I got up early, excited to be on FN and read a comment by him, and he hasn't said shit. Lawyers are worse than doctors..and that is pretty bad.

Dear Mr Field, I am relatively new and I notice that you have the statement "Silence is Never Golden!"

Do you mean "Never?" I am 75 years old and one thing I've learned about myself is sometimes restraint of tongue, ie, keeping my mouth shut, is far better than running my mouth. For instance, as a bm I tend to call Whites racists without even thinking about it.

There have been times when I have been wrong, 'dead' wrong. Nevertheless, instead of apologizing and admitting that I was wrong, I continue to call non-racists racists, knowing that it's not true. This only fuels the fire of racism by another Negro.

Do you see what I mean? We folks have got to get our shit together in order to end racism, NOT build on it. I mean, Whites put a cap on the N-word in order to strive to end racism. But what have we done about that ugly nasty word that got so many of us hung, discriminated against and enslaved? We start calling each other the N-word! It's as if we missed Whites calling us the N-word so much that we had to take up the slack in order to keep that shitty degrading word about us alive!

Mr Field, where is the Black race headed? Are we headed in the direction of Rachel Jeantac? Why won't you do a serious post about this life-threatening question? It could save our race.

"Yes Anon, I mean "NEVER"."

If you believe that "Silence is NEVER Golden", then why are you an Obamaholic? Obama is "Silent" 90% of the time. And when he DOES speak, he's lying. Oh wait....that's what an Obamaholic loves: LIES. Oh, I see...never mind.

Your laughing only proves your ignorance about milk. Try listening to NPR and other educational programs and you will hear "the card is still out on milk." It's YOU who is the buffoon.

Where the hell is Desert? I am sure she is a health professional and probably knows about the controversy over milk among medical science. Please educate PC.

I can't believe you had the 'nerve' to say "NEVER" when most of the time you remain SILENT on Obama's screwups, Dem screw-ups, and your own screw-ups. Hell, you even stay mute when people point out your transgressions. You need therapy AND Jesus. You make a mockery of your own statements.

Well, the comments have been so great these past few blog posts that I didn't want to interrupt:)

I've also been a little asthmatic because of the Saharan dust cloud that's hanging over PR.

I'm trying to bake some cookies today, but I'll talk to
y'all later and give my highly educated and intellectual opine :p

Here the thing numbnuts. You don’t get invited to the best restaurants, you pay for them if you can afford it – and I can afford it.

I’ve eaten at Roma Sparita on Piazza Santa Cecilia in Rome – I recommend the garlic mussels. I’ve eaten at Do Moriin in Venice which is well over 500 years old –try the salt cod. Orso Bianco in Milano has just the best ice cream you have ever tasted.

"The card is still out??? The CARD?????? Don't you mean The Jury is still out??

"Where the hell is Desert? I am sure she is a health professional and probably knows about the controversy over milk among medical science. Please educate PC."

But here's the thing, seeing how (according to you,) this is the greatest controversy in science today, why don't YOU provide a link to all these sources of information over science's problems with milk. There must be thousands of them...

I'll wait,,,,
