I don't know who drew or wrote this first page from the "Elmer" story of Looney Tunes & Merrie Melodies Comics #11 (Sept. 1942), but it's priceless and has its own kind of hate-mongering charm.
I don't have many other issues from this early, but Dave Gerstein tells me Sambo was a regular character in the books, with the same characterization and receiving similar treatment from other characters. Daffy also talked like a black guy.
