Mixed Race Romances!

Liana — “Her Color Was No Barrier — To Men.” I guess women don’t like her color.  Either way, she is hot and so is the white dude in the nicely fitting swimming outfit.  Sadly, the back of the book says Liana’s story “ends on a note of tragic inevitability.”

Kundu — Can you just feel the pulsing, explosive beat that drives white men crazy?  The back cover confirms this, “white exiles, each secretly roused by the primitive frenzy.”  And description gets more colorful, “fetid villages and wind-cooled valleys, of barbaric natives and over-civilized whites.”

Making way for a clean getaway, so lots of cool stuff I’ve collected over the years going up on Ebay.

ORIGINALS.

This is my native language.

Blackface/Wyteface.

If you haven’t noticed by now, my work often reflects and comments on American culture, advertising, branding and the general state of humanity as I see it. 

I can’t usually get through a commercial without groaning or making fun of it. A ride on the subway means dissecting the force-fed advertising to understand the true meaning of what the advertisers are  saying. A tabloid rack once-over leaves me both fuming and entertained.

Bombarded. Senses assaulted. Rampant fear mongering. Consumer Coma- Inducing.  Inspired and feeling someone violated, I tend to look at most advertising, packaging and consumer goods with a subverted eye and weighty skepticism.

I was thinking about all this as I was working on the piece posted here when I came across an ad for a product from 1949 called Wyteface.  You tell me what Keuffel & Esser were thinking with this word choice. Was it really to set itself apart from all the yellow measuring tapes?

I love when I’m working on something and an overt example of why I’m doing it passes before me.
