Rebirth of Jump Jim Crow


To the readers of Sisterdoc, regardless of whom you will be voting for,
I am asking everyone to send a complaint to: http://www.cafepress.com/OBAMA_TAP for selling “Tap Dancers for Obama” products, which very clearly draw upon blackface minstrelsy imagery. The customer service link is at the bottom of their webpage, highlighted in green. Cafepress offers a “disclaimer” indicating that they only market items created by others. This should in no way give them a “pass” for selling racist products.
