While driving on my recent vacation I tuned I to progressive radio one morning and listened to a show hosted by a black woman who's name I can't recall but she may be well known in here. Anyway this lady was outraged by the Sarina meltdown cartoon caricature that she said harkened back to the old Sambo depictions of blacks. She said Sarinas lips and hair and body were blown out of proportion and my thought was yeah, that's kind of what a caricature is. The artist amplifies and blows out of proportion whatever physical traits the subject has. My question is can we not have black caricatures now because it's offensive and reminiscent of old Sambo drawings? Caricatures of any famous black persons are no longer allowed?
