Masquerade Make-Up Kits-1978

Another tip of the Thompson topper to Ms. L. Mynx for sharing with me this politically incorrect comic book ad from...1978!! One might expect to find this sort of thing in 1940's comics but by 1978 we were, as a society, moving beyond a point where "black face" was acceptable. And yet here it is, alongside the equally politically incorrect "Indian" makeup and a "Disco" makeup that comes close to being actionable by KISS. I do kind of like that clown makeup, however.
