The 50 Most Racist Political Cartoons

44. Slaves of the Jews

Artist: James Albert Wales
Publishing Date: December 9, 1882
Published In: Unknown
People/person Targeted: Jews

Depicts Jewish factory owners as lecherously exploiting young women who would go to work for them. The lower left image of a man with an oversized key, saying, "It vos not mine pizness if dey gets burned," invokes factory owners who would unsafely lock their employees in (though the cartoon precedes themost famous tragedy related to that practice, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire).
