    A lot of these are from the 30's and 40's....but do you think cartoons now of days portray Blacks in a bad light?

    it's really sad how we are potrayed to fit the white society
    how we accept it and find it funny !

    we need more black hero's or bring those we do have back to life

    The pen has been proven again to be mightier than the sword... No one will change the mind set of those who portray us in a negative bafoon light, the depiction some have will always view us as fools, clowns, shines etc...that's not entirely important.. But what is extremely neccesary, and needed is a counter balance, we will continue to be considered hyper sensitive when the joke is on us, they will say lighten up its only a joke, or off color humor. So much emotion and pain is intertwined to it none the less..but I feel if we stay diligent in calling bad what is bad, we will surely be able to keep such BS at bay at least, but too, we cannot simply do unto others as they have done unto us. The cycle can stop with us, and the continuity of it is then broken, with little no burning power, a fire will die down into merely a smoldering pile of cold ash...emotional attachments are fuel...whether through humor, anger, pain... They know this...
