    nope.

    it showed the races getting along just fine. the kids were all equals.

    as far as the watermellon eating etc., i've been watching - In Living Color -. it's all in good humor.


    as kids, we never thought about black and white. it was just the gang.

    Harry Reid said about obama that he was a "clean" Black with no negro dialect unless he wanted to. That was just a few years ago.:jj:

    Like when they go into an abandoned house to dig for treasure and a crazy man accosts all of them and grabs them, or they get on a locomotive and crash it at full speed into a stalled truck and almost kill themselves....yeah!

    it's funny that when dems say or do something stupid, you never read about it unless it is hammered on so much by conservative news sources that they have to mention it. briefly. a republican farts and it's front page news for days.

    dominate the education system, news sources, and the entertainment industry and you control the debate.
    democracy in action. :)

    I loved when they were making that giant prize cake and Stymie sat on a stove that was on. When he wiped his brow and flicked his sweat it left black dots on the white wall. Priceless.

    This clip always made me laugh.

    I own all of the Our Gang/Rascals talkies on DVD. Waiting for the Cabin Fever remasters to appear on disc. So great!

    Of course its racist... but racial humor was part of that time and often Stymie, Buckwheat or Farina would be lead characters that would "save the day."

    Why is it so terrible to mention that black people love fried chicken? I'm Italian. I speak with my hands, I have oily skin and I love lasagna. So what?

    I remember one episode where they were faking getting the Measles to get out of school. The white kids all put black dots on there face, and Buckwheat (I think) put white dots.....
