My son just gave me a heads up on this video, and I’m hot! No surprise. Anger begets anger, and this video makes me angry. Even worse, it’s from Disney. Yes, that Disney. Disney should stay out of politics. Way, way out.
Slaves didn’t build this country by themselves. Saying or implying they did is just misleading and wrong. As for reparations, my readers know where I stand on that issue. Me and mine did nothing to you and yours. None of us were alive back then. None of us were slaves and none were slave owners. Even if I thought reparations might be due (which I don’t), there’s no equitable way to determine what they should be or how to distribute them.
Was this video made for children? Using children to teach other children to use anger to get what they want is despicable. Anger is as counterproductive as violence.
Disney really blew it with this little production, as did anyone responsible for its existence.
If this is where Disney is going, I’m done with Disney.
Note: I’ve learned the video is a scene from “The Proud Family,” a children’s series streaming on Disney+
April 15, 2023: Seems I’m not the only one who got hot over the Disney video. I just noticed the original video I posted has been shut down. So I plugged in a different one with the same content. It was just one of many now on YouTube that are protesting the original video just as much as I did.
