It will only take you 10 seconds to figure out why this cartoon was banned

Many people are not aware of their history.  They don’t know how black people were viewed in the past, and how this reflects the way black people are viewed till this day.  Some of the rap artists continue the tradition of the minstrel show because they don’t know any better.  If you see the way they dance and how many whites are in the audience, it’s easy to see that this didn’t start yesterday.  It is part of a long history of black degradation that goes to the days of slavery.

Will they ever teach this in public schools?  Probably not.  Keeping blacks uneducated is also another long-held American tradition, since uneducated blacks are not typically well-positioned to challenge their treatment.  The more we learn about our history, the more upset we’re going to become.   The establishment doesn’t want that.
This cartoon is just one of many created in the 20th century that presented views of blacks as only partially human. You can also see the way the black men go bananas when the woman walks past them.  This view of black men as sexual predators translates to how many black men have been sent to prison after being falsely accused of rape and other crimes.   The entire burning down of Black Wall Street and the many deaths that occurred afterward was the result of a black man being falsely accused of touching a white woman against her will.  Emmett Till was murdered for looking at a white woman shortly after this cartoon was created.

Watch the video and tell us what you think.  Also, ask why people would put this kind of imagery on TV and how these images might impact the self-esteem of young black children.
