The objects displayed in Michigan's newest museum range from the ordinary, such as simple ashtrays and fishing lures, to the grotesque a full-size replica of a lynching tree. But all are united by a common theme: They are steeped in racism so intense that it makes visitors cringe. That's the idea behind the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia, which says it has amassed the nation's largest public collection of artifacts spanning the segregation era, from Reconstruction until the civil rights movement, and beyond. The museum in a gleaming new exhibit hall at Ferris State University "is all about teaching, not a shrine to racism," said David Pilgrim, the founder and curator who started building the collection as a teenager.

Which room showcases the KKK and the Democrat party that started it?
More blacks were killed by fellow blacks LAST YEAR than by all the lynchings from the civil war to the present. The museum is a monument to victim-hood - a non-stop pity party. Yes, what happened to blacks back then was WRONG. Evil. We all know that... But, if these folks really cared about the senseless deaths of blacks, they would STOP the slaughter in their own neighborhoods today.
The Jim Crow laws in America are not without parallel but they were certainly fairly unique to American History. This seems like a topic worthy of a museum. It doesn’t have to be America hating any more than our local Holocaust Museum should be equated with “Why We Hate Germany”.
OTOH, I’ve also been to the Funeral Museum, The Doc Porter Museum of Telephone History, The Museum of Girl Scout History, and the Fie House Museum. That’s just what’s in the Houston area so I’m fairly certain that I attend Museu s a lot of other people would find deadly dull.
They did. It's called Liberia. Haven't checked lately to see how it's doing.
I’d like to see the hyperlink to this thread show up in the museum e-mail’s inbox.
Any takers? If not, I’ll do it myself...Fair, balanced and unafraid!
They did. It's called Liberia. Haven't checked lately to see how it's doing. Only problem, American blacks don't want to be there.
Bull Conner was a Democrat.
George Wallace was a Democrat.
The only serving member of the Senate who was ALSO a member of the KKK was Robert Byrd - a Democrat.
The Governor who put the confederate battle flag on the State Flag of South Carolina - in the 60's - and served many many more years WAS A DEMOCRAT.
Blacks need to wake up to reality... The only democrat politician who switched parties and became Republican was Maddox. The rest of them stayed Democrat...
Democrats were also the people to come up with the first 'gun control' laws - aimed at keeping black people from having guns.
Oh, and yeah - Lincoln was a Republican.
So were/are the people shown here.
Is there a new black pamper wing?
We could blow up the wanted posters for zimmerman and use it as wallpaper.
