Terry and the Pirates

I'm checking out the new Terry & the Pirates reprints from Idw. I understand that the Zeitgeist is completely different compared to the early 20th century but it's still kinda funky to imagine that this stuff was in everyday newspapers back in the thirties. Honestly I find it a bit charming and quaint. Since these excerpts were before WWII I was a bit curious about our hostility towards chinese at the time. I'm not the most well rounded history buff.

I did find this interesting article on wikipedia
"Yellow Peril"
