I have a friend who is a crazed 'decorator'.  She likes to use 'themes'.  A
few years back she decorated her kitchen all over with hundreds of
pickaninny dolls. I think she may have though it was campy; I thought it
pretty tacky and wondered what her African-American friends thought.

Conversely, as a kid, we always had the reversible Southern Belle/Mammy
doll and no one thought it was wrong.  Then I guess it became a no-no. 
Then I heard it was back and ok again.
