File This Under: "Questionable Decision Making" ... but the Jamaican Bobsled Team competed over the weekend wearing helmets that looked like watermelons.
Of course, in the U.S. ... there's a well-known stereotype about black people and watermelon -- but in fact, it's not really a "thing" in Jamaica.
Still, a little weird to see a team consisting entirely of black people wearing helmets that look like watermelon.
As one Jamaican source put it ... "I don't know about any stereotype ... all I know is we eat them, not put them on our heads."
