The Surreally Acute Racism of the San Francisco Vintage Paper Fair

Yesterday, I went to the San Francisco Vintage Paper Fair (yep, these things really happen here). More accurately, it should have been titled the San Francisco Fair of Aggressively Forward Racist Imagery of the 20th Century. I guess that was too long of a title.






I do not want to editorialize too much but it was damn astonishing to see these images in these days of Post-Racial America. That first picture is of a postcard. A POSTCARD! I imagine at least fifty birthday celebrating American children received that card and a nickel from their grandparents. 'Tis Amurica!
