    I find it incredibly upsetting that a great company like Earth Fare would not see the not-so-subtle racism in naming the coupon for watermelon “the Jefferson”. Poor, poor judgement.

    • earthfare says:

      @Michael, the coupon was Jefferson-themed as a part of our Founding Fathers program, in which we are offering different deals in the form of different monetary denominations. Jefferson is on the $2 bill, and this watermelon is $2. No racism is implied or intended.

      Get a life!

        Isn’t it nfunny how some people just look for something to whine about and try to make trouble.

    • Joe says:

      really is sad that some people will find a way to turn pretty much anything into a racism issue…why can’t you just be grateful to get a nice deal on a watermelon??

    • Dr. D. says:


      I get you. Personally, I think you should let this one slide. Not too many folks would’ve caught it (white ones in particular) and I’m sure Earth Fare meant no offense. But just to level the playing field, perhaps Earth Fare’s next coupon could be a box of crackers for a buck!? Get it? Washington? Cracker?

    Let’s see Michael. Jefferson is racist so what is Jones, Smith, Obama,Clinton ? Come on Michael it’s a name get over your racial hangup man. God still loves ya even if you can’t, but the rest of us are having a hard time with comments like that.

  4. Ann says:

    Michael has entirely too much time on his hands! Just enjoy the coupon and move on. Such a silly battle to get into…whew!
