Is this racist, tacky, stupid, a stereotype, or none of the above?
From the zoo's website:
Rare white alligator chomping down at Knoxville Zoo
Come look in dem eyes
KNOXVILLE, Tenn.- One of the rarest of reptiles is coming back to Knoxville Zoo on Friday, April 13, for a summer stay. After a 10-year absence, the zoo is bringing back the rare white alligator.
Known for their pink eyes and rare white skin, white alligators are said to bring good luck to those who dare cast a gaze upon the majestic creature. This summer through Labor Day, Knoxville Zoo visitors can "look in dem eyes" and find out if the legend is true.
