Comic: America's Greatest Comics #2
Year: February 1942
Similar to Marvel's Whitewash Jones was DC Comics character Steamboat, who looked and felt like the racism from minstrel shows had bled into the pages of a children's comic. Not only was Steamboat Captain Marvel's actual slave, but everything from his exaggerated speech to being drawn like a cartoonish chimpanzee made Steamboat feel like he was conceived by a KKK member. The weirdest shit is that Steamboat never seems to pick up on the fact that Batson is Captain Marvel, the guy he literally spent the most time in the world with. Why? Probably because he's an ignoramus.
