Obama Eating WatermelonDanny Hafley says his sculpture isn’t racist.

Sure, it depicts President Barack Obama holding a piece of watermelon, but what’s that got to do with anything?

“The way I look at it, it’s freedom of speech,” says Hafley.

He says it’s meant to be taken as a joke and not a racist display. In fact, he says everyone loves it.

“If I had a dollar for everyone who stopped and took a picture of it I’d be a millionaire.”

When asked the reason behind the watermelon, amateur comedian Hafley responded that he thought the figure “might get hungry standing out here.”

Check it out below. Do you think it’s racist?
