It looks funny and he is clearly portrayed as happy? You have to realize that in a lot of comics from Denmark it was how they were portrayed, but it had nothing to do with slavery or such, but everything to do with caricature. African's can be entirely black in skin color, there's nothing racial about that, but it is a fact. Notice he is wielding a spear and shield, he's a warrior, Khoikhoi warrior to be specific. He's not a slave, he's not being demeaned in any way, and in Danish comics, often represented exactly as such. So it seems to be a perfect caricature of those people?
However yes things have changed and now people get offended by how anything looks way before they actually think about what the thing means and symbolizes... so yeah..
