One cookbook illustrates so many issues: body image, ageing, racism, marketing & consumerism. Oh, and recipes too ;)

Photos Reveal Harsh Detail Of Brazil's History With Slavery
NPR (blog)
Brazil was the last place in the Americas to abolish slavery — it didn't happen until 1888 — and that meant that the final years of the practice were photographed.

Readers ask about degrading Occupied Japan salt/pepper shakers

Readers ask about degrading Occupied Japan salt/pepper shakers | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

I got to wondering about Japan’s place in the marketing of these products. The country was a major producer of salt and pepper shakers by the 1940s, and many of them were made in the stereotypical images of African Americans that was omnipresent in this country.

I know that Japan was not the only foreign country that made money off these items (I found some on the web that were said to be marked Germany). So I Googled, which turned up thousands of results of ”Made in Occupied Japan” Black Americana stuff that folks were selling – many caricatures and decidedly crude.

The little girl may be cute; the watermelon and poor English is horrible!

The watermelon prices are excellent. I'd take a dozen. As for the English, how many men online have you had send you something equally bad or worse? I don't ask them what colour they are, I just don't answer.

The bigger issue about racism isn't this card it's all the other cards which show white people exclusively. I feel bad for multicultural families who would like to have Valentines to send with something other than the typical white kids. You can't change the vintage Valentines but if you look in stores right now... where are the other cultures represented? All I see are cartoons, movies and etc being promoted. I don't see any Valentines I'd actually think were meant for a kid to take to school and distribute to his or her classroom.
