Editorial comment: This image is part of a series intended to amuse white audiences, pandering to and reinforcing negative racial stereotypes of the period. 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.
