22. BINGO! You hit the nail right on the head...
It reminds them of the "good old days," and we have to recognize that to THEM those WERE the "good old days." Nothing to do but sit in a rocker on the porch and sip mint julips, if you were rich.

If you were poor (and even some of the poorest whites did manage to "own" slaves) then at least you could say that SOMEONE was lower down the ladder than you were. You know, the whites might be suffering and starving, but they could always say, "At least I ain't a n......"

Those dolls represent a time that, to THEM, was a "better" time. They either don't care or never stop to think how it might make a black person feel. You know what they say...."Get over it."

And if Progressives, both white and of many colors, don't wake up...the Republicans are leading us right back to that "good old time."
