oppressed watermelons.

I was in the grocery store with my grandma and we see watermelon quarters on sale and I go to get one, and she says no its not the season for them, they won't be sweet. I say that probably it wasn't even grown here, it was probably grown in some Central or Southern American 3rd world country, where its always watermelon season. She says then why are they on sale? It would cost a fortune to import them. I say cause its easier to oppress third world countries. You can pay them 2¢ to grow watermelons, you can't so that to some farmer in Florida. So we keep walking down the fruit isle and I say, you don't want them? and she says no, I don't want watermelons from some oppressed country, they probably wont taste good. I'll wait till summer. And I say they will probably still not be American Watermelons. What makes you think your watermelon will be less oppressed in July?
