Two Very Disturbing Videos

These are two disturbing videos. I’m warning you in advance.

One shows stereotypical images from cartoons and movies of the Jim crow era. The other shows young kids imitating modern pop culture.

Which of these is more troubling, and why?

The first video is here: Black Stereotypes.

The second video is here: Children Freak Dancing.

It’s easy for us to blame racism for the first video. But who’s to blame for the second one?
