Vintage Ad in KKK Newspaper

1922 KKK Newspaper Ad

I found this little gem in the microfilm of a KKK newspaper that ran weekly for several years that the Dallas Public Library has.

Go ahead, soak it in. This was in the middle of some ads that were essentially just business names and contact information. This one took the chance of being creative, I suppose. It offends on so many levels, I’m not sure where to begin, but it’s not out of step with its’ contemporaries.

Like I said before, history is pretty brutal.
