Every now and then i stand on my stool . Speaking of subjects that are needed to be said.
Many years ago Walt Disney made a movie . Many that read this have seen or read about ” The Songs of the South” A family movie at the time . It was banned from theaters for be racist . Animated characters named brer bear , brer fox ,brer rabbit .Not for getting the real reason to banned this movie . The tar baby.
Many may remember the restaurants of the south west areas . Known as “Little Black Sambos ” or just Sambos . A pancake /family restaurant . Now renamed today as “Denny’s” .
There was a book wrote of a small boy in India. Named Little Black Sambo. The story nothing to do with black cultures . Told of a little boy and his grand new clothes . Telling of his walk into jungle . Giveing away all his clothes to tigers . Now banned from libriary of Congress
We all rembember seeing the signs in recruiting offices –Uncle Sam wants you ! I joined navy . Serving in a war . Many men and women gave some . Many gave all . I gave some . I will forever honor these men and women .They are what Americans stand for– Freedom ! Our new president Maybe doesnt believe in freedom ?
Today we see that it would be racisit to call our new Black President —Uncle Sam ? . Wouldnt it be ? So I would think I need to be politically correct by saying that I could rename our president —-Uncle ream -Us !
