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.http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2014/10/03/tom_and_jerry_racist_of_course_warning_on_amazon_and_itunes_is_appropriate.html?wpisrc=burger_bar
