I just found this post from 2007 over at the Undercover Black Man blog. It’s amazing. A whole bunch of newspaper headlines from around the turn of the last century, all dealing with giant negroes.
It’s a must read, simply mind-boggling. Attack of the Giant Negroes.
And I thought today’s media were being ridiculous about Arabs and Muslims.
Gather round, dear readers, and you will hear of a time when “giant negroes” roamed the earth. These giants committed shocking crimes. Newspapers from sea to shining sea documented their foul deeds.
Especially the New York Times.
The Times first acknowledged the existence of these fearsome creatures on August 5, 1897. The headline was “Insane Negro Giant in Newark.”
Over the next four decades, the New York Times provided all the news that was fit to print about “giant negroes.” Articles with headlines such as these:
“Giant Negro Attacks Police.” [Sept. 24, 1900]
“Negro Giant Guilty.” [July 28, 1905]
“Armed Negro Giant Goes Mad on Liner.” [May 15, 1916]
This is just a small sample. It’s really amazing.
