Inside the new $1.3m Museum of Racist Memorabilia with 9,000 exhibits that leave most visitors 'angry or offended'

Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia at Ferris State University 'is all about teaching, not a shrine to racism,' said black founder and curator David Pilgrim. Provocative exhibits at one of America's newest museums include a full-size replica of a lynching tree with many items portraying black men as lazy, violent or inarticulate. The objects displayed in the museum are steeped in racist images prevalent throughout U.S. history. See Museum link: http://www.ferris.edu/Jimcrow/what.htm
