Negro Hollywood

A historical curiosity. This is an early Hollywood claymation-type stop-motion cartoon from 1942, with a “darkie” hero. Shows how monkoids were portrayed in the 1940s.

People of my age, of course, can actually remember a time when Heckle and Jeckle were niggers. Or does anyone even know who Heckle and Jeckle are any more? (Harold lapses into senile mutterings.)
