More Racist Finds from My Grandmother's House

After the personal stein monogrammed "Slave," I'm starting to become a bit concerned with some of this brickabrack.

This is a painted porcelain figurine made in…

…yup, Occupied Japan.

My mom and aunt swore it was Aunt Jemima and that one just like it was featured on Antiques Roadshow, but according to the Internet this little baby's trade name is "Mammy."

So yeah, I'm not introducing grandma to my black friends from now on.
