I didn't think most of those were nearly as insulting as the ones aimed at women in the other thread. The artwork was pretty awful, like the artist didn't know how to portray Blacks as real people but the context wasn't as bad. Showing a Black kid eating citrus doesn't seem all that racist to me.

You can almost feel the raw outrage the general mass of Americans felt over treating Black people as second class. It's almost as if they had a culture deeply rooted in a servility ... in the acceptance of slavery and serving the master who knows best.
