The Collegian, Vol XI
Page 6, Left Most Column
The re-hash is a joke section of the Collegian, including the following: "Aunt Jemima, a big negro washer-woman, had just been knocked down by an automobile. A crowd gathered around to sympathize with her. 'You'll get damages for this, Aunt Jemima,' said one of the crowd. 'Damages h--I,' she replied, 'Ise got all the damages that I want-I crave repairs.' " This joke is targeted at African Americans and mocks the character Aunt Jemima by portraying her as stupid and overweight. The character Aunt Jemima is based of the typical “mammy” character portrayed in blackface, which was a racist depiction of African Americans.
