I've often wondered that myself. So I decided to do some researching...and I found an interesting website from a university that deals with the origins of stereotypes. I've provided the link for you and anyone else who is interested.
As for me, I like fried chicken as well as watermelon, but for years I hid that because I didn't want to be made fun of, but now I figure the hell with that nonsense. There are worse things in the world to like....and I know plenty of white people who like those things, too.
