Tintin The Racist?

A British commission on racial equality is calling for a Tintin comic book to be banned from UK bookstores over complaints that it is transparently racist. The graphic novel, entitled “Tintin in the Congo,” includes stereotypical caricatures of Africans, who frequently speak in embarrassingly imbecilic style. Tintin’s author, Herge, “continued to revise his books after their publication, and admitted embarrassment over some of the views they expressed.”
