Description

"Cohen and Coon" was a part animation, part live-action film by James Stuart Blackton where he would draw a stereotype face formed from the words Coon (a black man), Kelly (an Irish man), and Cohen (a Jewish man). Blackton called himself a "Komikal Kartoonist" where he did Lightning-Drawing acts like this using racist humor of the time. The act was drawing very quickly on a large pad and easel.
