[Content: racism, ableist slurs]
I’m sorry but this video is full of shit. It’s people LOOKING for racism…Gee that’s why racism is a problem now.
thisguyhere, really? REALLY? jfc this is outright, completely unconcealed racism. Go fuck yourself.
OKAY. SIRIUSLY. This is just bull shit. These are just a bunch of stick-in-the-mud wackos that are freaking over analyzing children’s movies! I’m sure Disney didn’t say “Hmmm…. how can I the offend people of this race today?”
Let me point out specifics.
Chyng Feng Sun says ‘In Mulan women are portrayed as very weak and worthless.’ (summarized from memory) when actually in the time period Mulan is set in, I’d say that’s fairly accurate! Disney may have embellished a few things, but you don’t see her saying ‘OH and also our ancestors don’t really send little dragons to help and follow us around.” What is a cartoon without embellishment?
Dr. Jack Shaheen also needs to take a chill-pill. Again with the whole time period IN THE MOVIE. Aladdin is obviously not set in present day so why bring up laws that are used TODAY.
Ooohhh my arguments could go on for pages FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THE CRAZIES in the video. But I’d rather not stuff up your dash. :) /Rant end.
What you are failing to realize (and what I’m guessing is futile to point out) is that someone added these racist things in there. They weren’t a blunder of any sort. They were intentionally put in there and intentionally racist caricatures. This isn’t reading into things. With ANY type of fiction, you need to realize that any fucking detail in there was put in there with some type of intention. These are the results of hundreds of years of oppression by race, not just some silly little mistake or some people overreacting.
You bring up the past a lot and how “THIS IS HOW THINGS WERE BACK THEN”. Also note the many other Disney films starring white characters set in the past. Indeed, Disney is very sexist, but they aren’t pointing out how sexist or “backwards” Europe was, and they never will, because in the Disney-verse, whiteness *is* the good social model and they will try and reinforce this racist idea time and time again. Again, this goes back to every detail in the film being put there intentionally. You realize that the voice acting, the animation, and the script were all done deliberately, right?
FFS, I don’t understand how you can be so fucking dense.
SHUTUP. PEOPLE WHO TAKE THIS SERIOUSLY JUST PLEASE SHOVE A LETTER OPENER IN YOUR SKULL. STOP BEING A BUNCH OF OVERLY OFFENDED ASSHOLES. JUST STOP.
