How racist can one cartoon get?
10 January 2004 | by karlasmithSee all my reviews

Very! This was the most offensive cartoon short I have ever viewed. Nearly every racial stereotype of Blacks described by Donald Bogle (Uncle Tom, Mammy, Coon, Pickaninny and High Yellow Vixen) were characterized here. It's disgusting that anyone would take the time to animate such boarish and unattractive caricatures of people.
