"Be Just - Even to John Chinaman," 1893

From the Collection of Roland Marchand

"Be Just - Even to John Chinaman," 1893. A judge says to Miss Columbia, "You allowed that boy to come into your school, it would be inhuman to throw him out now - it will be sufficient in the future to keep his brothers out." Note the ironing board and opium pipe carried by the Chinese. An Irish American holds up a slate with the slogan "Kick the Heathen Out; He's Got No Vote."
