Slandering the Babies
I am a student at Miami University, and one of my classes uses your website to discuss
the roots and evolution of racism as promoted through visual imagery. I read a little
about the collection and saw that you were always adding things, especially contemporary
items to show that racism is still alive and well (which is something I strongly believe).
Anyway, here is a t-shirt that I stumbled upon a couple of weeks ago. I can't think
of any item that better depicts the stereotypes Americans hold towards black people,
and also stereotypes that they promote to other cultures about blacks in America.
I hope you find this more helpful than offensive.
