Oh hey, it's Phillip (as in Phillip my mouth with cock) the fag! You forgot the crazy price they charged for them to rape white women.

Some people say that things are really bad in America today and have gotten worse, but those people haven't studied history. When I see pictures like this, I am reminded how much things have improved in America over time despite everything that is still wrong.

Color film was more expensive than b&w film at the time.

Yes, but remember that irony is a form of humor that has been practiced for thousands of years, and is also still being practiced today. This picture has EVERYTHING to do with race. If it weren't about race, the picture wouldn't be of a theater for colored people, it would be just another pic of another small movie theater in another small town. A good photograph should either make the observer feel something, or think something, or both, if possible; *I think* that this artist consciously considered the irony of photographing, in black and white, a picture of a theater intended for colored people. It's my opinion that this photographer chose to use B&W not only as the medium for this picture, but also as a choice in the picture's composition, *because* of the strongly ironic message that some people would take from this image

man, it's just appalling how insulting some of us whites back then were....sickening. Every human being deserves to be treated as one.

It had nothing to do with the race. B&W photography is a form of art that's being practiced until today.

So what? Color film existed before 1937. Kodachrome came out in 1935, and there were several commercial color photography processes that had been out since the turn of the twentieth century. I STILL say it's an ironic picture, and I think the photographer probably thought it humorous as well.

"1937"

Kind of ironic for the photographer to have taken a black & white picture of a theater for 'colored' people, though...

And, no doubt, the exclusively lush seating was made up of wooden benches, and the toilet was a hole in a dirt floor. All of which they paid the 'exclusive' segregation price for the privilege.
