When teaching racial tolerance derogatory pieces from the past where black people were described using all variations of the word nigger can be used as teaching tools. Today's generation is more likely to learn from visuals. For this reason, seeing the artifacts with their own eyes usually does more than words ever will. In the past, there were many items called nigger or nigger was part of the name. Many forms of the "word" appeared around the world on household products, food, toys, games, and a refreshment grandstand. Toowoomba, Queensland, Australia, had a grandstand called E. S. "Nigger" Brown Stand”, named for a famous white [footballer] Edward Stanley Brown. In 2002, a lawsuit was brought before one of Australia’s highest courts to have the named changed. The judge who heard the case ruled the stand's name could remain and was not offensive. In 2003,, the United Nations ruled the grandstand's name should be changed. Australia’s Commonwealth ignored the United Nations ruling.  E. S. Brown will be honored when the new stand is built.  When it became a public hazard, E. S. Nigger Brown Stand was demolished. E.S. Nigger Brown Stand will not return. How E.S. Brown is honored is now the question?
