        Hehehe. This reminds me of the most racist cartoons of all time.

          I don't know how some people back then could have accepted this kind of humor.

                "Foxy fagan", an old 40s comic book which is now in the public domain. You can read it here: http://digitalcomicmuseum.com/preview/index.php?did=7702&page=45

                  See, this is historical. It may be racist now, but it wasn't then. Its art. Much like Song of the South.

                    Interestingly, the comic is done by some of the people who did the original tom & jerry cartoons (where tom was owned by the similarly stereotyped fat black woman).

                      Also, define "very old".

                        I did define it in a later post, 1940s (1946 to be more specific).

                            I don't see what's that bad about it.

                              Stereotypes are funny when they're true. I'm white and I can make fun of Prius driving, latte drinking, Whole Foods shopping, yoga practicing white people all day. I don't see why we can't do it with other races as well.

                                True enough. But only as long as it doesn't change how people treat others. For example, it is a fact that French eat horse, and it could be funny to make a little crack out of it. But if you're going to go as far as "Get away from my horse you cheese-eating surrender monkey" then there's a problem.
