    Auctioning Racism on EBay

    The descriptive tease on eBay calls the collector's edition of "Ten Little N*gger Boys and Ten Little N*gger Girls," a "really sweet little old book."

    A print titled "N*gger in the Woodpile" is described as "adorable."

    And an illustrated children's classic that features the comic antics of two children named "Neddy and Nellie N*gger" is called a "nice assortment of characters."

    There are also approving teases for Bob's Uncle Little N*gger Boy Card Game, "N*gger" antique glass sets, moneyboxes, tobacco tins and racially offensive music scores, as well as the dozens of other similar items for sale on eBay. The fawning descriptive teases for these relics were not written decades ago, but by today's sellers.

    Destee,

    I won't use e-bay until this is resolved. Some things haven't really changed... Just look at the flag issue in Georgia. We need to get our own communities and businesses intact and flourishing.

    My Great-Grandmom was the first Black principal in Scottsboro, Alabama. Scottsboro is known for the 1931 rape case in which nine young men and boys were accused of raping two white women. My family made me very aware of the thinking of some white people who felt they are superior due to the color of their skin.
