Je n'aime pas dans les vieux films américains quand les conducteurs ne regardent pas la route. Et de ratage en ratage, on s'habitue à ne jamais dépasser le stade du brouillon. La vie n'est que l'interminable répétition d'une représentation qui n'aura jamais lieu.

Watermelon Contest (1900) - James H. White

A bigger, louder (metaphorically speaking) remake, this one features four African-American gentlemen as opposed to just two in the original.  But this has significantly more than twice the racism.  Everything is just much broader here.  These guys are just hamming it up for the camera.  One of them keeps leaping off of his seat and another one, toward the end, just sticks his face into his slice of watermelon and starts violently rubbing his face in it.  Racism: getting worse.  0 stars.

tl;dr – racism gets progressively worse in this incredibly broad & hammy film of blacks eating watermelons.  0 stars.
