I haven't posted in a while, but when I came across this I knew I had to post something. Today I came across possibly the most racist cartoon to ever be created. Sure we like to think that these cartoons are naive, but really this just disgusting. For starters, the 'pygmies' are overly-racialized with stereotypical 'big lips, overly dark complexion, barbarian/hedon-esque qualities'. And to top it all off, there's the minute details added like the watermelon as bait. Wow..just wow, you have to see it to really understand how bad this is.
