This page will contain links of articles, advertisements, etc. that I felt were discriminatory in nature, against black people in general. I am primarily interested in Genealogy, but I found as I was combing through old newspapers for obituaries. I was surprised to find in almost every paper I went through there was something derogatory in nature about a group of people whether it was based off color, sex, etc.. I am still transcribing family letters, but will be moving on to newspapers eventually.
***note: I find so far through letters people are more or less a "product of their time". I have been uncomfortable with the term African American, because I feel an American is an American period. I also realize that some people take pride, and want to honor their heritage, and roots. I will include both terms for the title of these posts***
