Title

Sterilize Welfare Mothers Now

Description

This is a white supremacist leaflet cartoon from 1970. The front depicts black mothers on welfare as rabbits (modeled after Warner Bros' Bugs Bunny) with overactive reproductive systems. On the back, a washed-out grey scale cinema still shows a skyscraper-tall King Kong staring menacingly at fleeing bystanders below and demanding a welfare check.
