FC: The Wonderful World of Disney
1: The Wonderful World of Disney By : Zipporah Ridley 2010
2: On the exterior Disney movies seem loving, sweet, and nurturing for children growing up. However when you delve into the subliminal messages for the comprehension of the minds of children
4: A huge example of the hidden racisms in Disney movies are the crows in the movie Dumbo. These all black crows are dressed in what resembles a pimps clothing. They are of course speaking in jive and heavily using ebonics. | They are depicted as poor and uneducated.
5: Disney even went as far as to name the main crow Jim Crow! He was deliberately named after the Jim Crow laws used to segregate the African-Americans from the Caucasians.
6: In Peter Pan these are the "Injuns" or the "Red Men" are portrayed. They are supposed to be Native Americans! In the movie the seem uneducated and, for lack of a better word, dumb.
7: Disney even has them sing a song called "Why is the Red Man Red?". The answer is that a Native American prince was blushed when a girl kissed him many years ago, now they all "blush". If this isn't offensive, I'm not certain what is.
8: This is an image from the 1948 children's book called Mickey Mouse and Adventures of Boy Thursday
9: This page from the children's book depicts Africans as violent and primative. It seems as if Disney is trying to portray Africans as a people that will kill and destroy anything that they are not familiar with.
10: This page of the book shows Tuesday, the African, worshiping Goofy. The interpretation is that Africans worship and pray to anything. Above all it's meant to say that they praise and worship what they don't understand.
11: This book is just mainly offensive. One part of this book Mickey mentions that maybe he should begin to show him off. I figure that in the 1940's people including Disney looked down on African Americans, like they are wild animals that need to be tamed, so they can become pets. Disney doesn't even make Tuesday seem human.
12: Thank you for taking a Walk down Memory Lane with Disney.
