racist Disney fans are so obnoxious. like yes thank you for showing pictures from all 10 or so movies that Disney has made with nonwhite leads out of their extensive movie library. that’ll show those whiners complaining about representation, right? because you only get one and we get the rest?
(Going from list of disney films here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Walt_Disney_Animation_Studios_films)
Alright, so. The First 20 Disney Animation Studio films were inherently racist because Walt Disney was in charge and he was an asshole. A racist, anti-Semitic, sexist asshole with a creative mind. From there on…
Robin Hood: All animals
Winnie the Pooh
Fox and the Hound: Are humans in this? Primarily about animals
The Black Cauldron: white people, a talking pig, blue/pink women, and a weird demon villain
The Great Mouse Detective: Animals
Oliver and Company: Animals
The Little Mermaid: Danish fairy tale, mermaids, one purple sea witch, and more talking animals, and white people (set to time)
The Rescuers Down Under: Animals
Beauty and the Beast: Dancing teacups. White people because France. Beast is a beast.
Aladdin: No white people to be seen.
Lion King: No people to be seen
Pocahontas: Glazing over historical problems? Yes. But POC representation.
The Hunchback of notre dame: Romani, also white people in France.
Hercules: Greeks, gods, and a pegasus and satyr
Tarzan: talking animals and white people because it references how white people were assholes and went to hunt and exploit the forests in name of ‘science’
Fantasia 2000: uh. green mother nature?
The Emperor’s New Groove: No white people except for the grouchy waitress
Atlantis: Kida. Kida.
Lilo and Stitch: does anyone complain about this one?
Treasure Planet: Aliens. and White people. and a guy giving birth.
Brother Bear: No white people
Home on the Range: Animals
Chicken Little: Animals
Meet the Robinsons: White People
Bolt: 98% animals. White girl
Princess and the Frog
Winnie the Pooh
14 animal movies, 8 movies with POC representation (w/o Hunchback of Notre Dame because I haven’t seen it and don’t know how much Esmerelda shows up, or Herc), and 11 movies with white people.
3 movie difference. Cut out the animal movies and it’s 42% of disney movies with POC representation.
Frozen was racist. But please let this go now.
(BTW: If you DO look at the first 20 it’s 10 animal movies, one movie with POC representation that’s still mostly animals (jungle book) and 8 movies that are white people, including the (german) snow white, (european) cinderella, and (french) sleeping beauty.)
when discussing representation of people of color in Disney movies you bring up movies in which the main characters are animals? also are you seriously bringing up mermaids and magical creatures (who, if they are humanoid, are overwhelmingly white skinned)?
also many of these films that have animals as the main characters have human characters in there as well. and guess what, they’re generally white!
