People need to realize that although Hollywood may produce family-friendly movies like The Avengers, rewind a few decades ago and those same movies were just drowning in racism. The entire concept of blackface — the cartoon Little Black Sambo, even how Asians were portrayed in cinema, those films weren’t only racist, but they were aimed at the youth of America, essentially imbuing those same twisted values early in life. Of course one can argue that racism is still prevalent in Hollywood, although a little bit more subtle than having a dude paint his face black and speak with an urban dialect — oh wait, Tropic Thunder.
