This comment is about blocking Disney movies made for children. I grew up watching those films. They are cartoons & yes, animals are personalized but they didn’t create racist impressions in my young mind. In other words, I didn’t see the crows as black people, the Siamese cats as Asian people, & didn’t relate large people to being elephants. I did cheer the bravery of Native Americans in Peter Pan & thought Tiger Lily would have a better match for Peter
I don’t trust pirates as I stand up against all bullies. Did anyone bother to survey kids & find how they viewed these films? Did anyone survey the adults who grew up with these films to see if they developed a racist attitude because of them? You need to read Farenheit 451 if you are really concerned. Or perhaps “Mississippi Burning” is a better demonstration of how children become racists. Of course, if they are watching Disney with really racist parents or family member, they can be talked into believing anything. Unfortunately showing or not showing these Disney films will have no effect on that problem.
