Title

Column "Re-Hash"

Description

On page six, in the "Re-Hash" weekly joke column, there is a joke that uses verbal blackface. It reads, "Liza, I'se gwine to kiss yuh when Ah goes!" [Reply] "Black boy, leave dis hear house at onct!" This use of dialect was presented as a form of entertainment. Through poor spelling and speech, the writer was mocking black people.
