Because of my History of Horror and Sci Fi film class back at the University of Alaska Anchorage in 1991, I did some digging into Edgar Rice Burroughs and what I found was not very good. Yes he became a prolific Sci Fi writer, but his stories were rooted in some of the most racist mindset I have ever seen. I put it all in context considering the racial climate of the time but he does not get a pass.
