Is this an appeasement, or are we asking for trouble?
What's up with the toothless bug, that may not be racist but it stereotypes southerners. I live in KY, so I know when a stereotype hits home. Everything I'd ever seen mocked was REAL down here and suddenly it wasn't funny.
Overall, I still think Disney is the debil and doubt that the message will be any better with a Black lead. Each story teaches you to wish you were something you are not. My daughter watched Mulan II (someone figured I wouldn't mind since she was non-white, that is NOT the criteria) and is now singing, "I want to be like other girls" and I have to stop her and tell her that she should want to be herself because she is beautiful, smart and funny.
I'm all for separate but equal. Separate means we do it our way, equal means the same resources behind it. We need to pull out of this crap.
I remain hopeful...but doubtful.
