Cartoon drawn by Joseph L. Parrish (1905-1989) of the Nashville "Tennessean" in 1932 showing Memphis, Tennessee, political boss E.H. Crump (1874-1954) arm-in-arm with two African Americans; one identified as prominent Memphis businessman and Republican Party organizer Robert R. Church, Jr. (1885-1952) and the other as "Negro Herder". Crump is holding a money bag with the words " Rake-off from Bootleggers, Dive Keepers, Gangsters, etc." written on it and his clothing is made of money. The three are heading in the direction of a sign reading "To The White Man's Primary". The cartoon has "Birds of a Feather" written at the top and ""I am honor and character!"" at the bottom. Opponents of Crump's candidate in the Democratic gubernatorial primary accused the Shelby County machine of herding African Americans to vote.
