Lovecrat was a correspondent of Robert E. Howard, of Conan the Barnarian fame, also a racist.

It was fully acceptable in the 1920s.

I know.

But the slave trade was dominated by Jews, not "us".

Howard’s take on race throughout his works was always pretty based.

And to think he barely had to experience nigs firsthand. Just the thought of free range niggers was enough to scare a guy who invented formless gods that devoured universes.

When, long ago, the gods created Earth

In Jove’s fair image Man was shaped at birth.

The beasts for lesser parts were next designed;

Yet were they too remote from humankind.

To fill the gap, and join the rest to Man,

Th’Olympian host conceiv’d a clever plan.

A beast they wrought, in semi-human figure,

Filled it with vice, and called the thing a Nigger.

Nigger-Man, he was actualy in one of my favorite short stories of his (The Rats In The Walls). Was funny af to read it and realise he self inserted his cat into his works and that he wrote him to be a realiable and trustworthy pet looking out for his owner. He really fucking loved that cat and i love that i could experience those feelings through a few lines in a horror story.
