stereoview from Prison Culture coll.| On Watermelons and Black Criminality… the association of black people and watermelons became a popular representation at the turn of the 20th century among white people; the purpose of these watermelon images was to dehumanize black people and to represent them as contented, lazy, “coons.”

This was an advertisement for a piece of art back in the 1920s. It is a picture of an infant-like African-American holding onto their stereotypical favorite food, a watermelon. It is wearing a diaper and holding a bottle, like a baby. It looks like a baby because babies are lower down on the human pyramid, implying that people in the 1920s had thought all black people were lesser than the white. Slavery may have been abolished, but black people were still looked down upon.
