WTF, I just found this racist Halloween mask depicting a black man on Amazon

WTF, I just found this racist Halloween mask depicting a black man on Amazon | Brian's Science and Technology | Scoop.it
I was searching for lifelike mice on Amazon today (long story) and found this unbelievably racist Halloween mask of a black man. Tiny ears, white eyes, big lips – just like the racist cartoons of the 50’s. My gut reaction was shock and I began to wonder how the seller would justify placing an item like this for sale. My guess is, they would argue it’s nothing more than a caricature, which begs the question – are caricatures racist by nature? http://geekslop.com/2016/racist-halloween-mask-depicting-african-american-black-man-amazon
