damn, cotton picking in cartoons
Yes… cartoons were a mess racially.
It’s funny though… like, I was watching the new Looney Tunes episodes. And, Tom, of “Tom and Jerry”, has usually always lived with a Mammy-like Black lady.
In the new episodes, though, they changed her to a White, Paula Deen like lady. It pissed me off!
He could have still lived with a Black lady… she just didn’t have to be a damn Mammy. Instead of correcting the racist depiction, they completely erased her.
