I dunno. It's a decent thing to put before an outdated cartoon. I don't think it comes close to addressing the issues. Of course, that's not it's purpose but I think people are extremely likely to say "well, we've taken care of that so That's all Folks" and just enjoy the same racist jingoistic sexist crap without giving it another thought.

It's a failure of the education system, IMO. Not that I think enough people care enough to fix it. It's a lot easier to talk about George Washington Carver and Susan B Anthony and say well we've just about covered that than to say, Why were ordinary people so extremely awful to each other for so long, what are they doing that still is, how was this organized into institutions that made this into a matter of policy and what exists of them today, what new ones are being instituted ... etc.
