    ALL LIVES MATTER- I am no longer going to allow my children to watch Disney, how is it right to make my Hispanic children feel as if their lives are less important. DISNEY should not have taken the position to only portray that black lives matter. My kids matter, I matter, there is no commerical supporting other ethnicities! How do I explain that to my children? Disney is about making dreams come true, or maybe dreams don’t matter? How could Disney do this, how can Disney choose to take a position to not show their care for the world and EVERYONE living in it, no matter their sex, race, age or beliefs. Disney goes out of the way to make sure their shows during the holidays cover many beliefs and traditions I have always commented Disney for that, for the educational experience Disney could provide my children, but now you have just taken a position! Disney went from teaching my kids to wash their hands during a pandemic to telling them only black lives matter…I can’t condone Disney for airing this commercial. Just go ahead and make the next commerical telling my kids Santa Claus isn’t real since you are pushing personal beliefs on my children, I want my children to grow up believing they should accept everyone, ke respectful and be kind to EVERYONE. Not just on race!

        I’m sorry, but what do my daughters have to look at on TV when they are watching Disney Channel. Every ethnicity has a animated princess, that had been portrayed on Disney Channel after the movie was made except for a black princess. Yes, we have Princess Tiana but have you ever seen her back on Disney Channel since the princess and the frog and still in that she wasn’t a true princess. Disney Channel wasn’t dismissing other races, they were just putting a spot light on something that has been happening to my culture for over 400+ years. Yes, your children’s life matter, just like every other race but my son he became a threat the day he was born and that was only because he was born black. Oh and as far as Disney Channel portraying shows about all ethnicities and cultures they portray the black culture based on stereotypes and still ALLOW my children to watch Disney Channel. Even though Walt Disney was indeed a racist.

          Disney channel is supporting a completly RACIST organization much like the kkk the black lives matter is a completely RACIST. organization. Calling for the destruction of other races except their own. The black fist and the saying black power are the same as the racist kkk symbols white fist and white power. I cannot believe Disney would promote such racism as the black lives matter movement and it is a disgrace to disney to air the RACIST BLM commercial. CHILDREN OF all races should not have to watch COMMERCIALS on children’s shows showing any racist organizations including the RACIST BLACK LIVES MATTER movement.

    Totally agree with Ashlye and i will no longer allow my children to watch Disney either. I will also be canceling cable since similar commercials have worked their way to many other channels.

    Bravo 👏🏾 Congrats Ana Thank you Disney unfortunately due to the astronomical alarming public rate of murder & flat out disgrace of Black lives (Not Hispanics, Not Whites) or any other race there isn’t any form of comparison! This estronumical disparity which has occurred for centuries is NOW coming to an end! I hope Disney will follow suite as the owner
    of Starbucks, Amazon, & NASCAR just to name a few of a long list of world changers & put up the deuces 🤞🏾your unimportant threats & continued support of racism. #BlacklivesMatter

      Tina, the vast majority of the murders are black on black, only .003 percent of blacks murdered were at the hands of police. So start there. The only thing BLM is doing is transferring blame, and really our kids should be insulated from it, not have it shoved down their throat while they are watching cartoons for entertainment.

      Let the adults work this one out, protect the kids from it.
