image for Classic Tintin Story Declared Rascist

Tintin in the Congo, one of the classic series by Georges Remi, has been declared rascist in it's treatment of native Africans and will be removed from bookshelves in Great Britain, the United States, and other countries. The novel features Tintin and his faithful dog Snowy on an adventure into the jungles of Africa.

While there, they visit the a backwards, uneducated, native population with no idea about hygeine, birth control, medicine, or the outside world. Protesters feel that this view is stereotypical, offensive, and rascist. When reminded that the native population at the time was backwards, uneducated, and had no idea about hygiene, birth control, medicine, or the outside world, they had no comment.

This same group had the story of Little Black Sambo changed to Little Brave Sambo, protested the inclusion of Uncle Remus in The Song of the South, and protested when Howard Cosell once said that a football player had the moves of a monkey.

The protestors, however, had no problems with other books in the series such as Tintin Visits the Rednecks, Tintin and His Spic Adventure, Tintin Kills Gooks, Tintin and Snowy at Aushwitz, Throwing Eggs At Fags With Tintin.

Make Jalapenoman's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
