Trivia:

Unfortunately, due to the racism of the era, his roles were limited to where he often played very degrading, stereotypical black characters who were usually frightened beyond exaggeration and/or brainless half-wits. Examples of these can be seen in Ladies They Talk About (1933), the "Our Gang" short _Shrimps for a Day (1934)_ and Blondie Has Servant Trouble (1940).

Star Sign:

Scorpio
