Different Color=Different Treatment
In "Of Mice and Men" people of different race were looked at as, and treated differently and majority of the time, unfairly.
Scrub me Mamma with a Boogie Beat (1941)
This is one of the many old cartoons with racial insults.
In the description of this video there's even a warning that says "WARNING: This cartoon contains extreme racial stereotyping. Shown here for historical and educational purposes and to promote discussion"
So many cartoons, advertisements, drawings, books during these times and even still today have awful racial, misleading stereotypes. In addition to this, people thought and believed that this was somehow okay!? How in the world is insulting, making fun of, segregating and thinking less of an ENTIRE race considered to be alright?
