We could give early Tom & Jerry cartoons a pass for being a product of their racist-ass era (the '40s, '50s, and '60s), and even tip our fitteds because many of the scenes with dark-skinned cannibals, characters in blackface, or Mammy Two Shoes, the poor and abusive black matron with a rodent problem, were edited out or altered for the 1965 transition to TV. We could, but we won't, because muting offensive-looking cannibals, reducing but not entirely eliminating blackface, and replacing a fat, abrasive, poverty stricken black woman with a fat, abrasive, poverty stricken Irish one isn't exactly like singing "Kumbaya."
