Bunny is another Golden Age character and not the only prominent albino in the early funnies.  A recurring characteristic of the early comic books was a appreciation of race and culture that was quite out of step with our modern notions of political correctness.  The most glaring example is probably the racial stereotypes directed at the Japanese, America’s adversary in WWII.  Sometimes the cultural mistakes seemed to be born out of a basic lack of credible knowledge about the world.  I once read a “Senorita Rio” story that took place in Brazil where one of the characters was named “Senor De Higgins.”  Incredible.
