The objects displayed in Michigan's newest museum range from the ordinary, such as simple ashtrays and fishing lures, to the grotesque a full-size replica of a lynching tree. But all are united by a common theme: They are steeped in racism so intense that it makes visitors cringe. That's the idea behind the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia, which says it has amassed the nation's largest public collection of artifacts spanning the segregation era, from Reconstruction until the civil rights movement, and beyond. The museum in a gleaming new exhibit hall at Ferris State University "is all about teaching, not a shrine to racism," said David Pilgrim, the founder and curator who started building the collection as a teenager.

It’s easier than getting a job.
Jim Crow laws.
Laws against blacks passed by Democrats.
Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia?....WTF
The “African-American” segment of our population(about 13%) has done a commendable job of daily proving their African hertigae and roots—tribalism, savagery and violence. Either they step up to the plate as AMERICANS, or go back to their ancestral roots and start their own country.
Well, the liberal view is that the southern Democrats who passed Jim Crow laws were out of the mainstream of the Democrat party.
And then the liberals talk about how Strom Thurmond and other old southern Democrats became Republicans in big numbers after the civil rights movement. In the liberal mind, this proves that they weren’t really good Democrats to start with.
Anybody want to go visit this museum? I wonder how many visitors they will have?
They’ll make all their money on public school visits.
The public school kids will be forced to take field trips to this museum.
I have come to the inevitable conclusion that there are far worse things in the world than racism...but try telling that to a liberal racist!
Exactly!...It will be required for every public school kid to go to within a thousand miles...
Definitely not at the top of my “What to do in Michigan” list.
If I would ever get there it would be to see how many lakes I could hit in two weeks with my fishing boat.
I want to see the mummy of Bill Clinton’s real father, Byrd’s hood and robe and Woodrow Wilson’s diary.
“Forced diversity is one of those things.”
If you mean multi-culturalism and how public education institutions and other liberal meccas espouse it the way they do...and what the reality of it amounts to socially then yeah, that’s what I’m talking about.
Multiculturalism practically guarantees that ethnicity and race are first and foremost in the minds of those who willingly participate. It’s racism but not in classic sense.
As somebody who doesn’t willingly “participate”, I’m labeled a racist and a hater of people different than me by people who don’t care to look beyond the color of my skin. They say, “Don’t hate, participate”.
I hate it when they do that.
Which room showcases the KKK and the Democrat party that started it?
Save their gas and just have them watch the closing credits of Spike Lee’s “Bamboozled.”
I don’t know how large the “Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia” is, but if the knucklehead founder wants to broaden his scope to cover racism in general, he will have to have multiple wings to cover the racism coming from “Rev.” Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, Eric Holder, Cynthia McKinney, Sheila Jackson Lee, Maxine Waters, most of the rest of the Congressional Black Caucus, “Rev.” Al Sharpton, “Rev.” Jessee Jackson, New Black Panthers, blacks who admit they will vote for Zero in numbers approaching 95% simply because he’s black, National Negro College Fund, BET, etc., etc., ad nauseum.
How ‘bout getting back to me on that, David Pilgrim?
