Racism in Television Shows

Racism has been, and still is present in many television shows both in the past, and right now. Some of the most racist television shows are the ones that you would least  expect to be racist. For instance, did you ever think that the most loved cartoon series,  Looney Tunes was racist? In fact Warner Brother's Looney Tunes is the third most racist show on television. Our favourite cartoon characters are portraying to children that Africans, and Natives are nothing more than dim-witted, foot dragging savages, and even occasional cannibals. It also bashes Jewish people, Italians, Mexicans, and Germans.

Looney Tunes is a cartoon television show produced by Warner Brothers, and targets an audience of children. The show is produced purely for entertainment and pleasure, but includes some very racial stereotypes that may come across as offensive to many viewers. Although most people probably just accept that it is a cartoon, and do not questions the message in it too intensively.
