Lent: Part 39

Song of the South (1946) – Now what’s so racist about a cheerful old pickaninny telling some sweet white boy some stories? It was followed by “Coal Black and de Sebben Dwarfs” (1943), which really puts the racism in perspective. There are some things to raise a fuss about; Song of the South is hardly one of them. But maybe I just don’t get it.
