Rachel Gronberg Unit 6 Post 1: 2/10

I watched Ethnic Notions.

!: The violence of cartoons was disguised as comedy… though cartoons really perpetuated the same violence that minstrelsy always has. Was that Bugs Bunny in blackface singing about Dixie? Do cartoons today shape children with the same violent images that they did in the early 20th century– and if so, what are we perpetuating?

?: Was “eenie meenie miney mo” originally with the N word– as the film portrays? Because if so, that is so unsettling.
