No Easter Egg Hunt This Year Racist Mayor Quits

Los Alamitos, Calfornia Mayor Dean Grose is to resign after sending around a picture depicting the White House lawn planted with watermelons under the title “No Easter egg hunt this year.”

Grose claims he was unaware of the stereotype linking black people and watermelons, but he accepts that the e-mail was in poor taste and has affected his ability to lead the city.

The email and picture came to light after one of the recipients, a fellow councillor complained publicly to the media.

Unconfirmed reports suggest a secretary stopped Grose sending out a shot of Obama and a bucket of KFC.
