Over the weekend, I was in a discussion… At one point, someone said that Henry Ford put a plaque in his early cars, saying something like “No blacks, no dogs, no Jews.”
Being a good Doper, I immediately asked for a cite. The person didn’t have a cite handy.
Okay, no big deal, the SDMB is good at finding cites.
Snopes came up empty on this; so did a search in GQ. Thus:
Henry Ford was known to be anti-Jewish. Did he go so far as to include an anti-Jewish and/or anti-black plaque on his cars? Or was he enough of a capitalist to accept that a customer is a customer, money is fungible, and as long as the cars sell it doesn’t matter who’s buying them?
