RACIST AUNT JAMIMA AD
I'm going through old magazines because I'm working on a new book and I'm doing some research. I've stumbled upon some interesting advertisements and articles, which I'll be posting just for fun. Here's one that I find kind of racist. What do you think about it? It was from 1939. In the same magazine I found a piece about a "Negro sorority." Obviously today one would find terminology insulting but there's a big photo of African American girls in college. So there was some forward thinking even then. Hmmm.
