| Very racist vintage advertising »
Of course the racism in these ads is deplorable. But I think if you're going to study old advertising, you have to look at the ugly stuff, too. To ignore its existence would be to ignore the pain it caused.

From what year was the second ad? I agree with Kelly--the only word to describe it besides "racist" is "harsh."

I would guess it's from the turn of the last century.

Wow, to today's standards, this ad is so incorrect, it makes me think it's been Photoshopped!
