Well folks, let's dive into an intrigue of silver screen proportions - was Buster Keaton racist? Now, I can hear some of you gasping, "Not our stone-faced slapstick hero!" But don't worry, I've done the digging so you don't have to. Turns out, there's no substantial evidence to paint Keaton as a racist. Sure, he was a product of his time and some of his films do reflect the stereotypes of that era. But by and large, our beloved Buster seems to have been more about pratfalls and less about prejudice - a good egg in a black and white world!
