The early days of the United States were truly a different era, and it’s crazy how much things have changed over the years.

These vintage ads that were commonplace and normal at the time they were produced are so unbelievably offensive now that it’s hard to imagine we’re still living in the same country. They are not only shocking but kind of hilarious at the same time… in a bad way that is.

The good news is that we have come a long way since then, and honestly, at this point, all we can really do is laugh about the USA’s politically incorrect past. Now that enough time has passed, we can look back at these offensive ads and appreciate just how ridiculous they are.
