I actually do remember seeing a bunch of these back in the day, now, not-so-much. I’m pretty sure most of the white supremacists are too old to keep up their Grand Wizard estates. They probably all reside in some White Supremacist rest home. Sucking on mint Jell-O.
To me, I never understood why the bigots loved these lawn ornaments. Technically successful jockeys can make a cool mill per year.
LAWN JOCKEY HISTORY.
Legend has it that the lawn jockey is modeled after Jacko Graves. Apparently he was a young African American boy that wanted to help fight the redcoats in 1776.
Washington said he was too young for battle. However, he told Jacko that he could watch the calvary’s horses while they crossed the Delaware river. And that he should keep a latern blazing so the soldiers could find their way back from the mission. Jacko was so faithful to General Washington that he froze to death carrying out his orders.
In the 1800s these statues were used to point escaped slaves towards the direction of underground railroad safe houses.
It wasn’t until the early 1900s when the moron racists really started to go nuts for these statues. Again, I didn't find much of a reason for it. Only that (In their small minds) displaying a tiny caricature of an African American on their lawns was the ultimate tribute to the Days of Dixie.
Thankfully today our society has almost all but abandoned this practice. Instead we proudly display our hatred for dwarves and midgets.
