Some STILL View Us This Way. Seeing this gives me a Heavy Heart.

These pictures were forwarded to me from a family member. It saddens my heart to see what my/our Grandparents had to live through and deal with. It's a shame that people can't be viewed as just that...people. I'm not trying to stir anything up, but please take a good look at the pictures below this article, and ask yourself how would you feel if you were considered to be nothing more than a slave, or a Circus act?

Black People have been ridiculed for more than 400 years, and here today, in 'modern society', these same Black People that are made fun of, are now our idols. We are Pro Basketball, Football, Golf and many other sports icons. We are Oscar & Emmy receiving and nominated Actors and Actresses, we are great Singers and Songwriters, Movie Directors and so on. Even with our popular and evergrowing Urban youth and Rap/Hip-Hop Cultures, although often imitated and duplicated, we are still made to look like untamed animals, and uneducated thugs. There are many PEOPLE of EVERY Race and Culture that are 'bad seeds', but Black People for some reason STILL end up becoming the focus of all negative attention. There is absolutely no reason for anyone, whether they be Black, White, Latin or Caucasian to be mistreated as the pictures below indicate. Side Bar: I can't believe they STILL sell 'Aunt Jamaima' (did I spell that right?) products! That's just as racist as the pics below.

I can't believe that people actually took the time to make items like this, and make them available to the public for sale. It is very sad.
