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

Today's Moment of Perspective: Watergate..............they bugged an office.

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.
