Super Racist Dr. Seuss Drawing Expected to Sell for $20,000 at Auction

Did you know the famed Dr. Seuss dabbled in racist caricatures before becoming the colorful children’s author & cartoonist most of us know and love?

If you didn’t, you do now.

One of his early cartoon works from 1929 is included in an upcoming auction at Nate D. Sanders, and it’s about as racist as racist drawings can get.

via Complex:
The cartoon was drawn for Judge magazine and it features a White man walking into a room full of Black men with a sign on the wall that reads “Take Home a High-Grade Nigger For Your Woodpile, Satifaction Guaranteed.” The Black men are all stereotypically drawn with really dark skin and big red lips, so the text on the sign is just a cherry on top of an already racist image.
The cartoon is expected to fetch around $20,000. We’re glad he had a change of heart (allegedly), because we like our Dr. Seuss drawing The Grinch, and Whoville — not N-words.
