One of the points that is most commented on in this era that is committed to a change of thought, is the way in which in other decades there was no objection to stereotyping in all entertainment stockings.
Movies like Breakfast at Tiffany’s and products such as Warner Bros. Looney Tunes or various Disney animated classics have been objects of valuations that retroactively put the finger on the racial stereotypes in which they incurred and that at that time were seen normally.
To recognize that the past was marked by negative representations, Disney added a notice in its classic contents available at Disney+ that have them.
In order not to fall into the removal of these sequences that are controversial in light of today, the house of the mouse points out in the warning that the content in question negatively portrays people or cultures and insists that stereotypes were and still are wrong, but that it is necessary to leave the work as it is to recognize its negative impact.
Also, the company says that seeing stereotypes in its products serves to to learn and to trigger conversations aimed at creating a more inclusive future.
What kind of sequences in the disney classics Are those that negatively represent people and cultures?
If you are familiar with the company’s animated classics, you will remember, for example, the way they Peter Pan portray a Native American tribe, or how in The Aristocats and in The Lady and the Tramp Asians are caricatured through the Siamese cats featured in both films.
Or also how in Dumbo Black workers appear who sing a song that makes an apology for slavery, or how black crows are portrayed in the same film.
We refer to that type of sequence.
