                                          The "Jim Crow" figure was
                                          a fixture of the minstrel
                                          shows that toured the
                                          South; a white man made
                                          up as a black man sang and
                                          mimicked stereotypical
                                          behavior in the name of
                                          comedy.

The most
recognizable
trademark in the
world by 1900, Bull
Durham tobacco ads
and trading cards
typically depicted
caricatures of foolish
looking or silly acting
blacks to draw
attention to its
product. Each ad has
a green bull
somewhere in the
image.

                                            Two silly looking black
                                            hunters have all the
                                            equipment for the hunt, but
                                            no match with which to light
                                            their cigarettes. The hunters
                                            are exaggerated images of
                                            blacks trying to imitate white
                                            people at sport. Notice the
                                            trademark green bull in the
                                            background. The Bull
                                            Durham bull together with
                                            the stereotypical images of
                                            blacks were a standard part
                                            of America's popular culture
                                            at the turn of the century.
