Remember the discussion we had on the movie song of the south? There was much more to that discussion and the reasons the civil rights people had problems than simple political correctness. In fact I have often found when you have a discussion on civil rights and black people's insistence on exposing the truth of their history, you'll get those that just want to hang on to any white supremacist notions in spite of all efforts to demonstrate what the truth is. You know what their most used defense is? They accuse black folks of political correctness. Do you know why? Because it changes the direction of the conversation from seeing the racism to giving cover for the racism. In other words, when you hear someone slinging the political correctness term, it's because they have no other answers, no substance, no facts, but they will do anything to derail facts about black history.

In fact just do a study on where that term came from and you'll see it's one of the manufactured terms invented by Newt Gingrich to give cover to those who couldn't win a debate if it was handed to them, but I digress.

Back to my main reason for this post. We had a discussion about the movie Song of the South, so now lets talk about some of the cartoons from that same era. Ever notice the caricatures used to represent black people in those cartoons?
Take Tom and Jerry for example. For those that want to sling the term political correctness, pay close attention to what one of the cartoonists says about the images he used of black people.

Of course black folks are supposed to remain silent and blame themselves for the criminal behavior of those who assail and attack us. Of course black folks who have the same mental illness as white folks need to be beaten down in the streets. Of course it's the police and other white folks who can always justify the fear for their life from every black person they come in contact with. Of course black folks have no reason or right to fear for our lives. If you want proof of how ignorant people are in believing that, just read the comment section at the end of the articles.

You want to hear what racist ignorance sounds like? Do you want to see what racist ignorance looks like? do you want to see and hear what it is I respond to and then I'm accused of playing the race card? Do you want to see and hear the ignorance of people who say black folks should just get over their history while at the same time wallowing in racist contempt?

Look and listen. If you're not a black person, put yourself in a black person's shoes and listen to we have to listen too while it is demaned of us to play nice, keep silent, don't respond else you'll be playing the race card.

Pure evil, pure racist ignorance.

We discussed the pre-emancipation proclamation further back in this forum. I just love it when others  play catch up. Good information though.
