Speaking of cartoons featuring Black people:



"La Reine Soleil" looks to be beautifully drawn and is about Egypt.

Here's the plot, loosely translated from French into English:

Ancient Egypt, 18th dynasty. Akhesa, charming 14 year old princess, is far from imagining that it will r├Ęgnera one day on Egypt…When its adventure starts, the impetuous young person. She rebels against her father, the Pharaon Akhenaton. She refuses to live confined in the enclosure of the royal palate and wants to discover why his/her mother, the Nefertiti queen, left to exile herself on the island of Elephantine. Akhesa flees with the assistance of prince Thout, in the hope to find his/her mother. To the contempt of the danger, the two teenagers travel then of banks of the Nile to the extreme dunes of the desert, and face with courage the Zannanza mercenary and the priests who plot to reverse the Pharaon. With their innocence as only weapon, Akhesa and Thout will overcome many tests, and will know an extraordinary destiny together.

Whats up with the blue eyes? The ancient Egyptians never portrayed themselves with blue eyes, NEVER. This is pure racism, because blue eyes are symbolic of Europeans not Africans, and the ancient Egyptians were undeniably Africans.

Seriously, the blue eyes are silly. What a gross oversight.
