Vintage Ads That Are Horribly Racist

Updated April 22, 2020 9.4m views11 items

Advertisers pandering to society's ignorance is nothing new. And these vintage ads are like a time capsule in the way that they perfectly encapsulate everything wrong with America's racist history. As you'll see here, the horrible racist stereotypes and caricatures in these advertisements and vintage posters still haunt with their harmful portrayals.

These horribly racist ads will make you cry and scream with horror, and they'll probably have you throwing things across the room.

This is advertising at its very worst, but it's also a frightening reminder of just how far we've come.
