  3. Liz Taylor isn't walking through a crowd of admirers. It's a crowd of reporters.

  4. OK, I'll admit the "I'll be hanged" one is a bit rough. But for God's sake, quit judging the past with your politically-correct 21st century eye, make some effort to see things through the contemporary prism, and accept - this one takes courage, kids - that stereotypes emerge from observable reality.

  6. Here's to all the politically correct people offended by these "callous" representations of early 20th century greeting cards. Wring your hands and beat your breast, you'll be alright. Fo' sho'!

  9. Are you serious? Racism is racism, no matter what era you are looking at. Just because racism wasn't criticized at that time doesn't make it okay.
    And "for Gods sake" stop your winning about the bad, bad political correct people and admit that you just want to be an asshole.

  10. Do you really think black/asian/indian people gave them to each other?

  11. Well, since I'm dealing with someone who shrieks "racism!" at the first sign of offense, and who defaults to juvenile name-calling instead of dealing with any points I've made, and who hasn't figured out that the word "racism" is effectively meaningless these last several years ....there's no reason for me to say any more, right?

  12. You just said anymore. How confused are you?

  13. Nice try sneaking out of the discussion.
    What points did you make? That it is not ok to criticize these cards because they portrait the era they are made in? What kind of an argument is that? How do you think progress can be made if not by reflecting the mistakes of the past?
