Disney and the warnings: don't Be a frog and talk about it

This Text contains negative representations and/or incorrect treatment of individuals or cultures. He is of similar warnings, how to get the Streaming platform Disney+ recently, in front of classics like "Dumbo" or certain consequences of the "Muppet Show" is displayed, because these stereotypical representations. The impulse of indignation about a Hyper-sensitive problematization seemingly harmless children's entertainment is popping up on many people over thirty now. Even, or especially those who consider themselves enlightened, and balanced. A certain malaise a là "where is the end?" feel to every once in a while.

the reactions to The warnings were expected to be fierce. Also, because, in the eyes of the Indignant often a piece of innocent Childhood is subsequently poisoned. In any case, you cried all the places soon censorship, ban, as fear of Irony and wondered what would be abolished as the next. The American broadcaster Fox News commentators like Joe Concha or senators like Tom Cotton about the "cancel culture" of the "woke mobs protested". This has been censored in the case of Disney's nothing. It remains to be seen. Only explanation.

All at this point you should issue short-Computer, Smartphone and TV, and remember. In the network of the only Parts of lack of seriousness-intentioned spell has been circulating for a long time: "Disney has given me unrealistic expectations of love." In fact, it was rare that parents declared, after the viewing of a Disney VHS or other Cartoons: "be careful Boy, you know that it is something more complicated?! And by that I mean not only the rarity of marriage senses willing Prince or Prince.“

children reproduce such stereotypes

And that is also about the representation of cultures in which the West had long enough passed, and no one knew as a child. Representations of Blacks or Asians from cartoons such as "Tom & Jerry", "Popeye", the "Looney Tunes" or "Dumbo" leaked us children into the brain, and have found their way into funny drawings or grimaces on the schoolyard, when it was just "Chinese". Here, too, there was rarely a stir when teeth with large cutting edge, Overbite, straw hat, and braided pigtail on painted kids images found.

these are representations have been present in those trick films, the Walt Disney ("Commando Duck") or Paramount Pictures ("You're a Sap, Mr. Jap") between 1941 and 1945, more than Propaganda films for the U.S. government-produced (Here you can also learn the German times like a stereotypical representation to the touch). Children reproduce in any case, such stereotypes quickly. And this fact speaks for a way of dealing with stereo typical to racist representations as to Disney (not disinterested!) has begun. Because if the representations of children be reproduced, children are the First to suffer.

Really problematic, it is only then, when companies such as Disney, the form are preparing to raise awareness monopolies to decide on content that could damage the Image and, thus, the business, and subsequently to remodel or completely disappear. Then, it is clear that a small warning is a profit to a possible world in which human wickedness or what was rotated declared to be quiet, instead of talking about it.
