What's a tar baby?

I never heard of one. Solve my mystery.
Clicky click.

Friend: you don't know what a tar baby is?

me: no

Friend: it means really dark skinned black person. (in the south) they used it during plantation times
but it also means a sticky situation.

me: woah
thats offensive
i was thinking about funny babies covered in tar

Friend: well it is kind of the idea that a black person is like someone dipped in tar

me: ew
