I have one of these piggy banks. I inherited it from my husband’s family about 25 years ago, and it’s been sitting in a box under the stairs ever since.
Is there such a place where I could donate it, where such grotesque representations are gathered together to show what things were like in ‘the good old days.’ Or should I just bin it?

Hard to believe these are still being made and sold. Bin it
What is a racist piggy bank?
The money boxes were of their time, most families had one - we did.

As for the other item, I have no comment that's printable.
Ah- I see! Thanks mamya and hc xx
I thought it made comments when you put money in...
I've got one of them; I've had it as long as I can remember and I'm in my 70s now. I've got no intention of binning it.
Donate it to your local mosque as a collection box.
The genuine "racist" piggy banks are still collectible and worth quite a lot....unfortunately they have been much copied and its difficult to tell the genuine from the fake.
Sorry. I assumed it was in the shape of a pig.
If it were pig shaped why would you donate it to the local mosque, Jackdaw?
Oooooh, you had to ask.
My great aunty used have one of those piggy banks. She'd always get it out for my sister and me to play with.
I was very young and didn't know about racism. My granny had a golly that she passed on my sister. I think it's still around somewhere. Are the piggy banks still being made?
Yes, they are still being made.
that person has weird shopping habits. Either that or they went out of their way to find "offensive" items

It’s genuine old one. I remember my brother in law having it on his mantlepiece in the early seventies, and I think he had had it for about 20 years.
I suppose I wouldn’t think twice about keeping it, if it were a piece of Nazi memorabilia- so, in the bin it goes.
There might be a few takers here ...
