Racist Cartoons

Every once in a while, the Saturday morning cartoons will air a Popeye or Bugs Bunny cartoon from the WWII (World War II) era. These are embarrassingly racist, referring to the Japanese as Japs or Nips, portrayed like little rats with huge teeth and squinting eyes. This might be forgiven since Japan attacked the USA unprovoked. However, Americans do the same thing today with the nations they attacked unprovoked. They call the Taliban and the Iraqi resistance terrorists, extremists and insurgents. They blanket the Internet with bigoted and uninformed cracks about Islam. Ignorant Americans pass on urban myths about Islam and almost no one has the balls to counter the disinformation.
