    Terrible racist leather postcard from 1907. It's from 1907 making it 110 years old. The front shows a chicken running from a black man across the street with the title "Why the chicken crossed the street". Just terrible.

      It is part of our history not cool in today's world but a good reminder of how far we have come and still need to go .
