Some people find the pieces to be an ethnic slur because they depicts African-Americans in a negative light. The pieces generally were made/manufactured when Blacks did not have equal rights in the United States. However, many people who own these collectibles are proud African-Americans and view them as important historical symbols of their heritage to be preserved. Nevertheless, those who are understandably sensitive, or unfamiliar with black memoribilia/Black Americana collectibles, may not care to read any further. Thank you.
