I don't consider cartoon stereotypes of people "racism" anyway. They did stereotypes of all kinds of white people in cartoons as well. It's just that the definition of racism has changed so much. As far as I know, it was a real black woman, with a real black woman's voice, doing the voice-overs for that character on T&J. The dialect was real, and we can stop pretending that dialect is and was never spoken.
I also agree at this point, I just want Vol.2 with or without the shorts in question.
kakistocracy (kak·is·toc·ra·cy) [kak-uh-stok-ruh-see]
noun, plural: kak·is·toc·ra·cies.
Government by the worst persons; a form of government in which the worst persons are in power; government by the least qualified or most unprincipled citizens.
Origin: 1820–30; < Greek kákisto ( s ), superlative of kakós bad + -cracy

Well, it's more about the blackface jokes than Mammy Two-Shoes. And I do consider blackface to be racist. Regardless, the warning that WB affixed to the first volume was sufficient, and would have been sufficient for the second.

No.

I'm considering selling my vol. 1 and forget that this whole thing ever happened.

Hopefully they are just waiting for the problem person to leave so they can release this properly.

How does that improve the situation, other than depriving you of the first batch of episodes? They already made their money on the sale. You are the one that loses.

In a way you're correct, however I still see the flip side of the coin that Farid's presenting. Certainly, it left a sour taste in my mouth and personally I'm holding off.

Yeah, here's hoping. This set seems to be frozen in development. Who knows if they will ever release it.

I won't be buying it unless it is unedited and in chronological order.
