Neighbors, due to negative stereotypes Disney+ has removed some our popular childhood films from its children’s profile on it’s streaming service.
According to the New York Post, Adults can still view the movies on their Disney+ accounts with the content warnings but as far as children Disney has removed access to the films for children under 7.
“Dumbo” (1941): “The crows and musical number pay homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations. The leader of the group in Dumbo is Jim Crow, which shares the name of laws that enforced racial segregation in the Southern United States.”
“Peter Pan” (1953): “The film portrays Native people in a stereotypical manner that reflects neither the diversity of Native peoples nor their authentic cultural traditions. It shows them speaking in an unintelligible language and repeatedly refers to them as ‘redskins,’ an offensive term. Peter and the Lost Boys engage in dancing, wearing headdresses and other exaggerated tropes.”
“The Aristocats,” a Siamese cat named Shun Gon is voiced in bad English by a white actor, plays the piano with chopsticks and has exaggerated stereotypes likes slanted eyes and buck teeth.”
