[quote=Gutted;1894209]Here's a thing for ya: I have seen song of the south.
The black people are simply living among the white people. They are no servants, and certainly not slaves!
Ive seen it too and don't remember it that way. Anyway, slaves or not, the black characters could easily be described as characatured (at least in PC-gone mad America). I personally have no objections to the film and if nothing else it shows racial attitudes of both the time the film is set and when it was made.
And yes, Brer Rabbit and friends have had a thriving comic book career since the film was released. Many of the European stories found their way into the American Walt Disney Comics and Stories. They also if I remember sometimes also feature the Big Bad Wolf, the Three Little Pigs and Little Bad Wolf - perhaps these characters could also be incorporated into SM?
Quick quiz - in the comics, BB Wolf was given a name. What is it?
