America, Then And Now

Then, 1950s:

Now:

A reader, German Viking, explains the provenance of the second photo:

This photo was from a story on American and European women going to African and Caribbean countries for sex holidays.

What I really liked about this “Ameriqua, Then and Now” contrast was how it seems in the 1950s photo the handsome family is a metaphor for their nation, happy and full of promise for the future as they walk confidently toward the viewer.

In the second photo, the couple walks away from the viewer, a metaphor for an America receding, turning her back on her people, full of fatty desperation and, well, Africa.
