Some very white people like fried chicken and watermelons, too. (Myself included). That doesn't make the racist stereotype less racist.
Never understood where that stereotype came from. I've lived in a few predominantly black neighborhoods and never noticed a higher presence of Chicken and Watermelon eating amongst blacks.
The fried chicken shops near me often have more black people in than would be representative of population. I've never in my life seen a black person eat watermelon though. I've always assumed it was to do with savage ancestry stereotyping like "spear-chucker" as a watermelon is an exotic fruit.

Imagine McCoy as Jar Jar though. "Nowwwww Hace, the drrrrrroid army..." or whatever.

From what I understand from this post, it's a Southern US thing.
To add to that, there was a large exodus of black Americans to the north who brought their food with them. In the north, these traditionally southern foods were not anywhere near as popular, so they became associated with the newcomers (i.e., African Americans).

But Sacks' wasn't all gushing, writing: ''Like all unexpected journeys, there are a few pitfalls along the way, most notably the tangential subplot surrounding bumbling wizard Radagast the Brown (Sylvester McCoy), whose buffoonery at times descends into Jar Jar Binks territory.''
Oh dear.
Oddly, the *actual* review that Stuff links to - http://www.nydailynews.com/entertain...icle-1.1209539 - has no such reference to Sylv or Jar Jar - Stuff's reporter seems to have, well, made shit up.

Though I can definitely believe that he'll be crap in it

Why change the habit of a lifetime, eh. Though if they wanted Jar Jar Binks, they should have got Matt Smith in.
