Today this type of caricatures would be acceptable in today's paper ephemera as it is offensive, it is shown here once what was commonplace in the United States of America. If the sharecroppers were so happy in Dixieland, they would not have left the rural south for the war industries in northern states in World War One and away from the southeast in World War Two in defense industries hoping for a better life.
