I miss the days when we didn't have to be so damn politically correct about everything.

Here's some cartoon samples from back in the day when blatant stereotypes = comedic gold!

I thought this was going to be about The Boondocks.

The thing about the Japanese soldier/sailor was okay.....we were at war with the Japanese at the time!

The one from The Jungle Book was fine too. You have to make several assumptions first before that one looks bad.

All I can say to the Betty Boop one is "Wow".


Just wow.

Jungle book was not racist, King Louie was voiced by Louis Prima a white guy.

Didn't Herge write some sort of apology at one point on that one? It was one of the few in the series I never owned or read.

Remember the Frito Bandito? I read that the latino community actually liked the character and it was guilty white liberals that got him labelled racist.

Straight razor or machete.

Heck, these days he would have beheaded the cat and hung the body from a bridge at a border crossing.

That's the only one that really made me go . The flintstones one was just retarded.

Louis Prima was a badass, btw.

I have some old Charlie Chan movies on DVD, including one with Stepin Fetchit. It's interesting to see what was funny/reasonable at one point.

I'm not sure, but it definitely changed over the years.

I've got a reprint of the original, as well as one from the late 60, and one from the 90s. There have been additional revisions and changes to it to make it more politically correct.

In the original (and in the 60s), in addition to the racism, Tintin also "hunts" a rhinoceros by sneaking into a tree above it, drilling a hole in its armored back, putting in a stick of dynamite, and then blowing it into little pieces. He also kills about 20 elephants.
My only problem was that other than a few obvious models most guns were black upper case Ls.

That's just a wee bit past "racist but still a little bit funny" over into the "WTF?" zone.
I remember seeing long ago a <Warner Bros??> cartoon where the main characters are hunting pigmies & at one point bait their trap with watermelon.

Thought for sure Coal Black & De Sebbin Dwarfs would've been on the vid.

Makes me glad I'm old enough to have seen a lot of those things on cartoon network between Dexter's Lab shows.

The only one I found to be over the top was the Bugs Bunny with Yosemite Sam.

But what the fuck? If people are offended by those then I guess I should start crying and whining about every Elmer Fudd Cartoon I've ever seen.

Betty Boop was the only one overtly "racist" and derogatory. The others seemed to be playing on stereotypes more than anything.
Link Posted: 10/3/2011 9:46:13 AM EST
The Betty boop one was over the top.

King Louie never struck me as racist at all.

The bugs bunny one is kinda eh as well.

The Flintstones one just shows ignorance.

Yep, these days stereotypes are deemed racist. Sad.

A perfect example of how silly and overused the "rascist" label has become.

The fat broad from Tom & Jerry is based on any number of real people.

When I was a little kid, my mom hired a cleaning lady that was a dead ringer for that cartoon.

It's a non-derogatory stereotype that exists in real life.
Link Posted: 10/3/2011 9:53:02 AM EST
ahhhh the memories.
Link Posted: 10/3/2011 9:54:39 AM EST
The thing that gets me is that, in most of the films where people complain of racist portrayals, the minority is either the winner or the best behaved of all the characters.

Who consistently won every cat and mouse game with Sylvester? Speedy. Or slowpoke.

In "Blazing Saddles" the only white that wasn't an idiot, buffoon, or evil was The Kid - and he was a washed up alcoholic.

In "16 Candles", Long Duk Dong was preyed upon by white women, patronized by his guest family, and generally abused while all around spoiled white kids are destroying a house. And in the end he basically says "Fuck you - I'm tired" and walks away.

Only in America can people get pissed off when the hero of the story is a member of their culture, simply because he was PORTRAYED as a member of their culture.

The Bugs Bunny bit had me laughing, not the content, I just think Bugs is hilarious.

I remember reading something a long time ago, Cartoon Network had stopped airing the Speedy Gonzales cartoons in the states because it was deemed offensive to hispanics, but they still aired it on Cartoon Network Latin America because it was one of the most popular cartoons.

Found it:

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,48872,00.html - 2002

Speedy boosters shouldn't expect to see their furry hero anytime soon, at least in the United States, Goldberg said. But there is a place where Speedy can still be found zipping across TV screens � and, presumably, where the crude stereotypes he embodies don't touch a cultural nerve.

That place: The Cartoon Network Latin America, where, ironically enough, Speedy Gonzales is "hugely popular," Goldberg said.

Really? The Betty Boop one was pretty bad: blackface, big lips, loud and inconsiderate in the theater, and fucking WATERMELON.

The rest were less than sensitive but the Betty Boop one was intentionally racist.

I've never watched it on purpose. I was just making a blanket statement. I hate reality TV and shows like AIdol.
