Excluding Food Trucks From Using Historically Racist Music To Solicit Business

WHEREAS, mobile food trucks, specifically ice cream trucks, continue to use variations of the 1916 song "Nigga Loves a Watermelon" to solicit business from children which is offensive to the African-American community.

THEREFORE, BE IT FINALLY RESOLVED, that the NAACP condemns the use of racist songs for food trucks, ice cream trucks or other vehicles, and will advocate to stop the usage of the songs.
