Edit: A member of Stormfront, KKK, racist cult etc. has a child, and raises the child to be as racist as he/she is. The child grows up and draws blacks as caricatures of themselves. It's not racist? Who's deciding if it's racist? You, the person who likes the stories and the nostalgia? Or the blacks who were targeted by it?
