Thread: wow....just...wow

  1. #1

    wow....just...wow

    This may not be totally appropriate for this forum, but we have been discussing race a lot and I think it will only get more prevalent as the election nears...and I found this and was just in awe of the outright racism in this vintage Popeye cartoon.

    Apparently you've never seen the Little Black Sambo Disney cartoon. I'm not going to post it here but it's on Youtube if you're so inclined.

    "Scrub Me Mama" is similarly outrageous. Also on Youtube.

    I see it...the thing I find weird is, if you're going to portray him as that, why not make him do stupid things for laughter? As doing that would have been perfectly acceptable back then.

    I was just thinking that... Little Sambo is waaaaay worse than the popeye cartoon.

    That **** does exist though, it's an unfortunate part of our past.

    Do you realize how relatively progressive that cartoon was for having a black kid as just "one of the boys"?

    Pretty crazy when you think about what life was like back then

    What's the problem?

    I'll tell you, I bet dollar to donuts that the little black boy, accurately depicted I might add, was only in that school because he took the place of a more qualified WHITE applicant.

    Another blatant case of reverse racism. It's disgusting :steamin:

    Watch Dumbo, the scene with the black birds. That's not a very flattering depiction either.

    Speaking of reverse racism and DeanPatsFan... what's up with the floods in Iowa?

    Where is FEMA? Where are the trailers for people to live in? Where are the $2000 debit cards? Does George Bush hate white people? Why aren't libs upset over this debacle?

    The only thing more disturbing than that, is the fact that someone digitized that and put it online.


    I wish I had the last 7 minutes of my life back.

    The funny thing is, the Liberal media is trying to stay as far away from racisim as possible.... The last thing they want, is for Obama to be involed in the race card right now... Obamas people are staying as far away from that as possible..... Why do you think they hasnt been any stir on the remarks by Imus the other day?

    Apparently the libs don't want to answer. They know there is no race card to play. The masters of playing the race card can't do it here.

    right, because those two situation are exactly alike...the same amount of dead, people being trapped for days...dead bodies floating in the water


    both situations are exactly the same...

    yeesh, you guys just hear someone say something and regurgitate it without even thinking about it, huh...

    if you disagree with Dean on anything, you are branded a liberal...

    Dean: "I do not like Mustard on my hamburger"

    You: "Well, I love it!"

    Dean: "You dirty liberal commie bastard."
