I do not believe this movie is Racist, I saw another Poster’s thread on “Birth of a Nation” and it inspired me to bring this famous Disney classic up again.
I think this particular film is possibly actually a significant masterpiece of both animation and social comment. I think it has been misrepresented by radical anti-racists who look over the overwhelming positive aspects of the film.
I mean here is a film where the lead fatherly figure for a young white southern american boy, is an African American. This was actually the first time a Negro actually played a leading role in Hollywood. We get two young boys(one white and one black) and a young girl who all sit together and listen to the wise old man telling them beautiful stories. If anything the movie is about the races coming together and working for a better combined future.
This film, when understood correctly as being set after the Civil war(which it is, it is set in the near immediate aftermath) in a time of major social changes(including greater freedom to Negroes), is utterly entertaining, quite moral, and should be more avalible to the modern generation of children.
