    Yeah, it's kind of odd that blacks don't have more 19th century family heirlooms they'd like to have appraised. It's almost as if they weren't allowed to own anything back then.

    As an avid watcher of American Pickers and Pawn Stars too, I can probably count on one hand the number of times anyone of color has been on selling something. Unfortunately, they're all on Hardcore Pawn trying to pawn their TV's for $20 :(

    If colored includes Asians then indeed there are amazing things to be found in South and SE Asia. Thing about Asian FOBs (and probably all FOBs) is they often don't emigrate w/ their household goods, thus few items to interest antiques roadshow producers and viewers in the States or UK.

    We need a few more LA Riots and then we may have enough accumulation of goods to have such a show.
