Skip to comments.Museum of Shocking Racist Memorabilia Opens in Bid to Teach Tolerance
Posted on 04/22/2012 1:58:43 PM PDT by lbryce
The Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia, in Michigan, US, contains a vast range of posters, toys and signs depicting shocking stereotypes of African American people.
It includes outdated theories of evolution, instructions on how to black up for the theatre and even a full-size replica of a lynching tree.
The collection, which makes for extremely uncomfortable viewing in the modern day, is said to be the largest of its kind in the world.
It was amassed by the founder and curator of the museum David Pilgrim, who began collecting the pieces as a teenager.

Is there a section on black racism?
Is there an Al Sharpton wax sculpture?
How about Jesse Jackass?
Anything on Robert Byrd?
Because if not, then the racist museum is racist.
I’ll bet in the whole museum there is not one mention of the Democrat Party’s active leading role in institutionalizing racism in our nation’s history.
And I’ll bet there’s no indication of the fact that no black person was ever lynched by a Republican.
“It was amassed by the founder and curator of the museum David Pilgrim, who began collecting the pieces as a teenager.”
That’s one sick puppy...
I just glanced through the article at the link, so maybe I missed it, but who is paying for this museum?
(I have a suspicion it’s me and other white people who dare to be successful.)
Can we also get a museum for anti-Irish racism? And one for anti-Italian Racism?, and Mexicans, and American Indians, and Jews, and Catholics ...etc. etc.? Or maybe instead we can agree that some men have always treated their fellow man poorly and that our nation has transcended all that and created the greatest, freest society in human history. Then maybe we can get on with the business of becoming the best we can be at every level.
Wallow in meaningless historical flotsam and jetsam.
While the race pimps pull in their millions promoting racial hate and envy.
Nowadays B. Hussein Obama and his stupid gang of racist democrat thugs smear stay-at-home moms as useless ignorant mammies.
Is this a joke? They have Aunt Esther (from Sanford & Son) and also Jar Jar from Star Wars. If you want to see Black Americana, you would do better at eBay - http://www.ebay.com/sch/Black-Americana-/29457/i.html .
By what seems to be omitted, that museum appears to be anything but a teaching tool for tolerance.
Broad brushes, wide strokes, the precise thing this man proclaims he is against, he is entrenched in teaching to others.
Racism, intolerance, denigration of whole groups, ignoring strong broad evidence of the majority of people acting in ways contradictory to this man’s presentation, the evil nature of reverse racism flourishes.
I’d like for this man or any other Black figure, to give me an estimation what year Blacks will agree to become just another citizen inside one harmonious nation. 2020? 2040? 2050? 2950? Never? Just give me a year.
When I see others, I don’t look at skin color. It saddens me to see so many not think of me in the same terms.
This man has spent his whole life documenting how unfair others are, so that in the end he can prove how unfair he is. Sad really...
How about focusing on the vast majority of the populace that doesn’t focus on skin color?
How bout an Anthony Johnson memorial wing? America’s first true slave owner and black man.
“Can we also get a museum for anti-Irish racism? And one for anti-Italian Racism?, and Mexicans, and American Indians, and Jews, and Catholics ...etc. etc.?”
I’m an Irish Catholic. There’s a two-fer for you! Would I get in free?
I certainly hope they show all the members of the KKK and those AGAINST civil rights were all DEMOCRAPS
As I figured. 98%...white on black racism....meant for Americans only.
You are quite right. I learned about the Federal Laws against the Chinese as well as the racism the Irish faced from Dr. Thomas Sowell's very interesting book about economics/politics and racism. If I remember correctly a Negro Slave was worth more than an Irish man. A Negro Slave was not allowed to work the docks since they cost more as a commodity than the replacement cost of an Irish man. The Irish were a dime a dozen I guess. It was fascinating. Hopefully I am remembering that correctly.
1983. The Economics and Politics of Race. I still have the book.
Why the heck FNC hired that Jesse Jackson offspring instead of Dr. Sowell is beyond me.
That statement is probably not true, and would be next to impossible to prove. I will grant you that nine out of ten members of a lynch mob attacking a black where more sympathetic to the Democratic Party than the Republicans.
