In Honour of Confederate History Month
Ads of the past have some pretty creepy imagery and stereotypes, but this takes the Jello Mold.
The text is kind of puny, so I'll reprint it here for the benefit of those without 52-inch screens.
"Jello is known to all sections as America's Most Famous Dessert. In the South, for instance, it is inexpensive enough to be found in the cabins of the old plantation. It is delicious enough to meet the standards of good living at 'The Big House'. It is dainty enough for milady's afternoon tea. It is appealing enough to turn the sinful, of any color, away from his neighbour's melon patch."
And people wonder why African Americans seem a little culturally "sensitive" to ethnic jokes.
Oh my hell.
