Franchesca Ramsey explains what makes some stereotypes racist

One of my favorite YouTube vloggers, Franchesca Ramsey (a.k.a Chescaleigh), just started collaborating with MTV on a new online series called "Decoded," where she discusses race, pop culture, and more.

For her first video, Ramsey examines the difference between a harmless cultural stereotype and one with racist baggage by examining the historical connection between fried chicken, watermelon, and the black community. As always Ramsey offers up a thoughtful, nuanced, funny perspective.
