“A Privilege?” 1875

Text:
“Wife: I wish you were not allowed in here.”

This image shows segregation as a good thing. Because blacks can’t be served by whites, they can’t go into taverns. Thus, blacks are saved from the scourge of alcohol. It’s absurd on the face of it, but useful in showing how whites could justify segregation in any number of ways.
