African-Americans during the slavery period mixed this story with the [[RascallyRabbit Br'er Rabbit]] cycle, putting the title Rabbit in the starring role and making the tar baby a creation of Br'er Fox. Sadly, those tales are almost forgotten in modern America, especially because Disney's ''Disney/SongOfTheSouth'' has been put into permanent storage due to ValuesDissonance and meddling from political correctness authorities. It's gotten to the point that even modern people who've heard of the tar baby story think it's some sort of [[GetTheeToANunnery archaic racist remark]], when it's nothing of the sort.
