Whitman's PICKANINNY PEPPERMENTS Chocolate Covered

Whitman's Chocolate, nd. Paperback. Very Good. Item #21-8932

7 x 1 x 1". Small 2-3/8 oz size cardboard product box for Whitman's brand chocolate candies. This box has clear great graphic images of African American children on three sides. SCARCE. An interesting product that Chief Justice Marshall prior to his Supreme Court appointment sent a letter in 1939 protesting the use of the term "Pickaninny" as distasteful to negroes. A bit of history about the early controversy about this product is available on the Whitman's Candy Wikipedia page. Condition is fair to good for a box so old and rare. Please note: we are selling this as a historical relic documenting America's racist past. We are not promoting the sickening disease of racism.

Price: $75.00
