About This Item
It was cited that the name was a racial epithet that targeted Black people. While the word Sambo is, in fact, a racial epithet, in this case it was actually derived from the names of the two founders, Sam Battistone Sr. and Newell Bohnett. The chain's mascot was a dark skinned boy and his tiger companion. If the protestors had bothered to read the popular book from where the characters were derived, they would have known that the boy was in fact, Tamilese (Southern India). Besides, who ever heard of an African Tiger?

Basic SHIPPING COSTS are based on the Postal Rates set Media Mail postal fees by the United States Postal Service pricing matrix, as well as the average book size and weight. As most of us know, book sizes and weights vary greatly. In the case where the shipping costs vary greatly from our Shipping Fee Matrix, the remaining fees have been included in the cost of the book. There are a few rare examples where additional fees may be added to your invoice. These cases are pointed out of the page related to said book.
However, not all is bad news, as a former purchasing manager, I can never forget my bosses mantra, "Consolidate your orders to save on shipping". In the case where the actual shipping cost is much lower, due to low weight or because the combined weight of multiple purchases allow for a more economical rate or shipping class. For example, USPS offers several FLAT RATE Priority Mail packages. This method will often same money when purchasing several heavy items such as books. We invite you to request a guaranteed/no obligation shipping price quote.
