When I first saw “Itchy and Scratchy”, I was stuck. The colorful characters appeared on the TV screen of The Bart Simpson show around 1988-89’ish. Around that time in New York, Crack was everywhere and you could see it. I was 6 years old, and my parents were devoted Jehovah Witnesses. My parents tried their best to protect me and my siblings from

When I first saw “Itchy and Scratchy”, I was stuck. The colorful characters appeared on the TV screen of The Bart Simpson show around 1988-89’ish. Around that time in New York, Crack was everywhere and you could see it. I was 6 years old, and my parents were devoted Jehovah Witnesses. My parents tried their best to protect me and my siblings from what was going on around us. Itchy and Scratchy was the first cartoon where I witnessed blood being shed. And to me it was ground breaking. I was fascinated, and I often wondered about the mind set of creators of the show, and how old they were. It seemed like no matter how hard my parents tried, they couldn’t shelter me from the idea of violence for too long. One of my all time favorite music video, Children’s Story- Slick Rick was released in ’88, and I remember writing one of my first rap that year, entitled “Mom Said”.

In 1991 I was drawing and tracing cartoons from magazines and candy wrappers. It was a very creative time for me. August of that year, Ren and Stimpy premiered on Nickelodeon. It was the first cartoon that had detailed cartoon Nastiness. It was very crude, especially The Lost Episodes of Ren and Stimpy. In March that year, the world saw Rodney King

In 1991 I was drawing and tracing cartoons from magazines and candy wrappers. It was a very creative time for me. August of that year, Ren and Stimpy premiered on Nickelodeon. It was the first cartoon that had detailed cartoon Nastiness. It was very crude, especially The Lost Episodes of Ren and Stimpy. In March that year, the world saw Rodney King being brutalized on camera by a group of White LAPD officers. When they first aired the video, I was really young, and I remember the way my mom and dad (a biracial couple) looked at each other in silence. When the riots began the next year, I could never forget the looked they shared. That year on the radio some of my favorites singles were from Black Sheep, Cypress Hill, A Tribe Called Quest, Heavy D, Kris Kross.

BeBe’s Kids had to be one of my all time favorite Animations. Seeing Brothers and Sisters on the TV was a great look, but the swag and voices that backed each character was very relatable to people I actually knew. Real people with real flaws, with real attitudes . I always thought about the cartoon and how it was released after the LA Riots, which brought me back to thinking about the circumstances that led up to the riots in the first place. BeBe’s Kids made me think of Latasha Harlins, about how the Court system in America allowed a Korean shop owner to Gun down a 15 year old girl, and walk away with only 5 years probation and community service. Bebe’s Kids always make me acknowledge that there is a dedicated wicked that revolves around Black youth in America and Black Brothers and Sisters in general. R.I.P Robin Harris.
