RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Donations so far: $3500Goal: $3500

Should we add something about the Charleston shooting? <3 CSapphire bullets of pure love 00:49, 22 June 2015 (UTC)


The picture on the left is not actually some kind of anti-black depiction, it's a north american propaganda poster made during WW1. The ape is meant to depict Germans. — Unsigned, by: / talk

That appears to be true.[1] Can someone come up with a better illustrations, either something else or just the photo on the right? Bongolian (talk) 03:52, 3 July 2018 (UTC)
Amazingly, there don't appear to be any suitable replacement images in the Historic racists caricatures of African Americans category on Wikimedia Commons. There are plenty of images of buffoonish simpletons there but no images of any one who looks remotely dangerous. In its parent category, Racist cartoons and illustrations, I found this, which might just do at a pinch. What do you think? Spud (talk) 06:42, 3 July 2018 (UTC)

Sports culture[edit]

I also think it is important to note that this stereotype also permeates in sports culture as well with black athletes sometimes considered to have more “natural” athletic prowess than other races. Former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling has expressed these views once saying “look at these beautiful black bodies” to women in the locker room while players were undressing after a game.[2]SensaurC-137 (talk) 23:09, 11 July 2020 (UTC)
