"Negros can never have impartial portraits at the hands of white artists. It seems to us next to impossible for white men to take likeness of black men, without most grossly exaggerating their distinctive features. And the reason is obvious. Artists, like all other white persons, have developed a theory dissecting the distinctive features of Negro physiognomy."
- Frederick Douglas on the offensive caricatures of African Americans.
