I can't decide which I want more, the "give me a penny" coin bank, or the Black Lady Mechanical bank. The whole collection of Black Americana is OUTSTANDING. Kudos!
P.S. It's 2007.
I love the "God Bless America" on the front page of their site, as an added dose of unintentional irony. I'm surprised that a tube of "Darkie" toothpaste wasn't included.
Can't win 'em all. :(
I love the "Aunt Jemima and Uncle Salt and Pepper Set"
Now ladies... you KNOW what Uncle's name is. Let's hear it. C'mon... I'll give you a hint. It ain't 'Ben'.
If Cast Iron Mammy isn't a song on the next Tom Waits album, there's no justice in the world.
That's brilliant, "We're Americans, and this is what blackness is." Smiling gap-toothed simpletons who toss coins into their mouths.
I'm going to write to the factory that is currently manufacturing these $3.00 retail price gems (maybe to apply, perhaps as a lips painter). My suggestions for new Black Americana figurines will be:
1) Aunt Jemima being rejected for a housing loan in the white section of Texasbelletown,
2) Aunt Jemima being pulled over on her way to work in Texasbelletown, because she's black, and
3) Aunt Jemima being rejected for jury service, because of her "negative experiences with the police" 20 years ago when she saw family members stomped during an indiscriminate raid.
I notice you can put reviews on the products...
i am so, so embarrassed.
not all of us proper type southern ladies (even the ones in texas) are... that way. i swear. =[
I've known black collectors of the old memorabilia down in Florida. However, making new stuff of this... there's simply no excuse.
Well, at least we know what to bring to the Baby Pr0k babyshower :D
What's wrong with being racy?
