You've never heard anything about Disney and racism? How is that even possible? Have you never heard of a search engine? Never actually read anything about Disney's history? Regardless of whether you believe Disney to be racist or not, the portrayal of race in animation has been a talking point since the beginning of the art form, and certainly Disney's history in this matter has been widely documented and discussed.

Saying you've never heard anything about the subject and therefore someone else is ignorant is, well, ironic to say the least. So this is for you, congratulations:

IF that claim is true, it would appear to be a purely business decision and not necessarily a reflection of his personal views (i.e., "I'm not racist, but my customers are, and I want to stay in business so I'll have to make racist decisions"). That wouldn't justify it, of course, but it still makes your "joke" stupid since you still haven't provided evidence that Walt personally abhorred black people and refused to associate with them or people married to them.

Depicting racial/ethnic stereotypes in cartoons does not a racist make. By that standard, nearly every animator who's ever lived is a racist.

Disney was not the only one that made racial stereotypes in animation. The black cat in Tom and Jerry was really bad. Warner Brothers is just as guilty of stereotyping as every other animator that drew in before the civil rights movement.

you should take a closer look asome of the 1930-50s looney toons episodes. Words like "darky" aren't uncommon. There is a difference between drawing sterotypes (e.g. Asians have slits for eyes) and racists sterotypes (e.g. Asians can't see well because of thier eye shape, they have buck teeth, sound funny, and are always scheeming to steal things). You don't need to look to hard at Disney-era Disney stuff to find the later.

Odd... could've sworn "I've never heard of Disney being racist" was a request for evidence related to that question. Now you say you need proof.

The point was simply that I was trying to let you know that yes, there has been much debate historically about Walt Disney's personal feelings on minorities, and how those may or may not be reflected in the treatment and depiction of minorities by his namesake company. That's all.

The one thing I always have to remind myself about people who grew up pre-civil rights and during the civil rights movement is it was a different time then than it is now. Culturally, rules were different and people lived by them. These were ideals that were imbedded into people from birth. In today's world, we look back and see all the racial stereotypes and preach about how racist that is. But back then, it was not looked on with an "evil eye" to say it was wrong. It was excepted and was "the norm" of the day.

Apparently, Walt Disney was a bit of a racist and I do remember he had a thing against the brown people from Mexico, iirc. Don't remember him hating on blacks but I wouldn't doubt it if it turned out to be another race he didn't like.
 
2013-01-04 12:12:05 PM  
Pretty sure he was a notorious antisemite, wasnt he?

And just because it wasn't considered racist "back then" doesn't mean it isn't actually racist. It was just OK to be racist back then.

the problem with that is you are using it as an excuse. there is no excuse to be a bigot. We can look back at the past an understand the reasons culturally why racism was more open and prevalent, but that doesn't excuse the racists themselves.

May the prenup be with him. You know it's going to be filmed against a green screen with everybody digitally inserted by ILM and in a few years he's going to go back and add Jabba the Hutt to the video. He's also going to change who "shoots" first in the honeymoon video.

Dunno, from the sounds of things she's got plenty of her own scratch. FTFA "43-year-old investment firm president Mellody Hobson" "Hobson serves as chairman of DreamWorks Animation and is a financial contributor to ABC's "Good Morning America.""
I'm going to say she was likely pretty well off on her own before Lucas. Folks like that don't need to go gold digging.
