    • Lisa: That's as bad as the tastless "Itchy & Sambo" cartoons from the late '30's."
      In the 1930s, many cartoons featured black people as Al Jolson-style characters with large lips. 'Little Black Sambo' was an example of this kind of racist humor. The Internet Movie Database description reads (in part): "Mammy gives Little Black Sambo a quick scrub on the washboard, then pats him down with baby powder, black baby powder, before sending him off to play. She warns him about the tiger. "That ol' tiger sure do like dark meat!"
      Movies like The Jazz Singer and Check and Double Check also featured white actors in blackface.
