Notes:
Editorial comment: This image is part of a series intended to amuse white audiences, pandering to and reinforcing negative racial stereotypes of the period (although this particular image is relatively neutral compared to the rest of the series). The series title, which many late 20th-century and early 21st-century audiences would consider offensive in itself, makes the intentions of the publisher clear. --David Haberstich, Archives Center.
