Value Village Black History Month Display Update

Posted by on February 10 at 12:52 PM

Earlier this week, Erica C. Barnett slogged about the black history month display in the window of the 11th Ave Value Village.

Like Erica, I am deeply fascinated by this window display, which I don’t take as an aggressive expression of anyone’s racism, just a muddle-headed attempt to commemorate a month.

Still, what the hell is this doing in there? Or this?

This, however, is adorable. But really, nothing can make up for the extravagant weirdness of this. Did plush burros play an integral role in black history? Am I missing something?

C'mon, can we get a wider shot? Tie it all together for us! This really seems like something that has to be witnessed in person, but I still want to see more pictures.

Maybe it's a mule...

I tried to get a wider shot, but because it's actually SUNNY today, the glare on the window is impossible. Maybe at dusk, I'll bounce back down there. Just for you.

Your kind actions would not go unnoticed, Kelly. Jesus will totally buy you a burger. And you will have made my day a little brighter.

I agree. Forty acres and a mule.
