US Army Propaganda
























Continuing on the face and race discussion from the previous post, here's a Second World War US Army Leaflet on how to tell the difference between a Japanese and Chinese. It is, as you might have gathered, a tad racist and not entirely accurate. The Japanese equivalent would be interesting if anyone knows of where they can be found.

This came via Ethan Persoffwho has some fun archival leaflets, cartoons and propaganda on his site.
