Nisse Neger

Browsing old newspapers you are bound to find offensive images of racial stereotypes.
This is an example from a Swedish newspaper, a strip called "Nisse Neger" published in Aftontidningen in the early 50's. One can only wonder how anything like this could ever have been accepted. It's not even a bit funny. But for those of you interested in the history of old comic strips I thought I should share this sample.
Can't read the signature in the last panel. Anyone knows the origin of this strip? American? Scandinavian?
