This was a commission to illustrate the mining situation in Colombia.
Millions of acres of national territory are being auctioned to foreign mining companies.
(I think it's not going to see the light of print because the concept of the illustration turned out to harsh)
Meh, whatcha gonna do.

2.Alligator Bait (1900)
This is a decidedly unique and interesting picture. A little colored baby is tied to a post on a tropical shore. A huge 'gator comes out of the water, and is about to devour the little kid, when a hunter appears and shoots the reptile.
The "Alligator Bait" Stereotype was mostly seen on the late nineteenth century to the mid twentieth century. It depicted the horrendous practice of Alligator hunters that used African-American kids to bait alligators.
Today, Alligator Bait, is used as a derogatory term against African-American people.
I, in no way, want to condone or promote this stereotypes.

The first one is a piece of early gore:
