Hit The Nigger Baby

As the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom officially celebrate Black History Month we flashback to never forget yesteryear. It is not too long ago when a popular game was played at carnivals across the United States. That game was known by many names including “Hit The Nigger Baby”. Sometimes the popular “Dunk Tank” game also took on similar names.
