Subjective Blog Description (The Varsity)

The author of these articles holds assumptions that due to The Varsity’s design focusing in on the culture and style of the 1920’s, the ethics from that time period remain the same as well inside the restaurant. As a life long customer with a mother who has been eating there for even longer, it took one trip of objectification and observance for the author to realize that there was potentially hidden meanings and exclusion behind the advertisements that hung across the walls. With all of the advertisements and pictures containing strictly white models with plastered smiles across their faces, holding a bottle of coke, many thoughts can be formulated over what extent of respect was being given to the African Americans during that time. Though only in one area of the restaurant, the onlooker saw minimal individuals that weren’t of the white race, and noticed that every worker behind the counter was black, reflecting ideals that match the styled theme of the restaurant perfectly. The author used these 3 articles to introduce ideas of architectural racism and how prominent it can be in every day American culture with failure from us to even realize.
