Porcelain Pickaninny Or Folk Art?

Posted January 6th, 2019 by Iron Mike

RRB thanks a sharp-eyed viewer for this find – in Senator Squaw’s kitchen.

There was a time in America when such porcelain caricatures were considered harmless folk art.  But in 2019, in a US Senator’s kitchen…?  Will she say her Cherokee grandma gave it to her…?

    I don’t know which photo I like better: Lizzie drinking beer from a bottle or her little friend eating watermelon.

    Yes, there was a time when Aunt Jemima was on the pancake box. If you look today, she is an attractive woman of color. Times have changed but Lizzie hasn’t.

    She is a phony thru and thru. Surely this effort to seek the demorat nomination will go nowhere. Even the most liberal demorat isn’t that dumb,,,,are they?
