not even blacks want to do," Fox's government has issued five postage stamps featuring a character in what appears to be blackface. Named Memin Pinguin, the dark-skin, fat-lipped character appears in a comic book first created in the 1940s that is still being published today. While activists here liken the character to the "pickininny," Mexican officials countered: "Just as Speedy Gonzalez has never been interpreted in a racial manner by the people in Mexico.. . He is a cartoon character. I am certain that this commemorative postage stamp is not intended to be interpreted on a racial basis in Mexico or anywhere else."
