Yes, I know he was, but "tar baby" was a fairly common racist term at one point (I've heard older members of my dad's family use it as a derogatory remark. Yeah, I don't like my dad's family). Which is why him being black and being called that is troubling, in my mind.

*googles* I guess this is one of those things where different countries have different uses for different phrases! Wikipedia says that in non-US countries, it's just a phrase for a problem you can't get out of. I live in the US, and I've only ever heard the derogatory use.
