Toon Characters Speak Out
UPDATE (2007): AAEA-Hollywood has discovered that Bugs Bunny was originally Black. Quite a conundrum. A cruel twist.
Marvin the Martian is a black Martian obsessed with getting the Earth out of the way of his view of Venus. His weapon of choice is the Illudium Q-36 explosive space modulator. Interestingly, a black, even on Mars, is associated with a gun and portrayed as posing a threat to the Earth. Viva la Daffy. Viva la Marvin. We demand equal treatment with Bugs.
Unfortunately, black-on-black violence is being exhibited by Daffy and Marvin even on Mars. Daffy constantly tries to steal the crystal that powers Marvin's ray gun and Marvin shoots Daffy with the atomizer, decomposing him in the process. Bugs usually intervenes to assist with Daffy's reatomization. The Mars Chapter of the NAACP is ignoring the issue.
