I Am Not Your Lunch by poasterchild I Am Not Your Lunch by poasterchild
Please disseminate widely, thank you! This does not give permission to alter or claim credit for this re-mixed work, for which I retain all copyrights. The original illustration is in the public domain.

This poaster has been created by request for the SeaofSorrow group here on DA. I encourage you to support their efforts to stop the annual slaughter of hundreds of dolphins at Taiji Cove in Japan.

I have totally revised the content and title of this piece. The original racist depiction of a Japanese soldier has been dispensed with.

Wow they are doing this again this year, and even worse (this time it is over 500 dolphins).

Remember guys this poster was from the 1940s. It was intended to be racist to promote xenophobia nation wide. This is actually one of the tamest posters depicting Japanese from that era. Most have them pictured as sub-human rat people raping white women or stabbing defenseless people and ganging up on wounded soldiers. This artist specializes in re-purposing WW2 propaganda posters and was asked to do this piece. He picked the tamest he could find and I've tried to help him to find something more appropriate but it may not be out there and this was a requested picture.
