Was Walt Disney a racist? There are a lot of speculations and rumors in Disney tales. Was he involved with the Nazi party? Did he make some distasteful comments for people of the Jewish faith? I have always felt particular about Disney myth, whenever I write my animation reviews . What facts I do know are evident in Disney animated cartoons :
Racism In Disney Shorts
Was there racism in Disney shorts? In 1929's " The Opry House ," Mickey Mouse dresses like a Hasidic Jew. In 1933, the Big Bad Wolf dressed up like a Jewish peddler in the Academy Award winning, " The Three Little Pigs ." There have been more rumors in Disney hating the Jews over the years, but he did have Jewish employees such as the Sherman Brothers . Whereas disgruntled employees stated he hated the Jews. It would seem most of these rumors stemmed out of the Animators Strike in 1941.
Disney's financial and critical success of shorts paved the way for feature length animated cartoons . Walt Disney's third film, "Fantasia," did not find as much success as its predecessors. There were issues with European distribution, or perhaps it was related to Sunflower. The original screenings of "Fantasia," up until 1960, feature aBlack Centaur polishing hooves and primping the Caucasian Centaurs . There is no Sunflower in Disney parks or merchandise, now just a myth of racism in Walt Disney movies.
African Americans were also poked at in other feature length animated cartoons such as "Dumbo." In Disneystudios at this time, the Animators Strike was also going on. To help costs, "Dumbo" took a different artistic path, and it starts off with the " Song of the Roustabouts ." It features a massive group of illiterate, shadowy, African Americans singing a work song as if they were back on the plantation. Check out some of the lyrics:
This isn't the only scene of racism in "Dumbo" towards African Americans. Walt Disney allowed a character to be called Jim Crow. Jim Crow was also a system of laws that was used to keep African Americans as an inferior race in the Southern United States from post Civil War up until 1960. In fact, when "Dumbo" premiered, there were still mass lynch mobs in the United States.
Racism in Cartoon Movies
Jim Crow laws also crept their way into other Walt Disney cartoon movies , like "Song of the South." James Baskett, who played Uncle Remus in the film, won an honorary Academy Award (first African American male to receive one) but couldn't even attend the premiere in Atlanta since it was a racially segregated city under Jim Crow law in 1946 .
"Song of the South" would eventually cause a ruckus with the NAACP . Cartoon movies like " Roger Rabbit ," sometimes get flack for mixing animation with live action. "South" only uses the animation to illustrate Joel Chandler Harris' "Uncle Remus Tales." One of the Disney animated cartoons was called the " Tar Baby ," which could teach a moral about how Br'er rabbit was a trickster, but the term "Tar Baby," is racially offensive.
"Song of the South," didn't have much life before it became shunned in Disney history. Even though the song, " Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah " got an Academy Award in 1947, the cartoon movie faded into taboo history. The Walt DisneyCompany has never released it to home video in the U.S. It seems that Disney is still too worried of their image being viewed by children as racially insensitive.
Walt Disney a Racist
Despite all of my research, I couldn't find any clear cut evidence that Walt Disney was truly racist or Anti-Semitic. Granted, there was some racism in Disney animated cartoons during his tenure at the studio, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Walt was. Wouldn't that mean that Seth Macfarlane and/or Roger Ailes are racist for everything in "The Family Guy?" Neil Gabler brings up Walt Disney as " guilty by association ," in his Los Angeles Times article, along with other great facts about Disney's political views.
I like to think that things got a lot more sensitive as I was growing up in the 80s. I remember watching a lot of the classic Disney and Warner Bros shorts on tv, but years later they would be edited. Scenes of characters shooting themselves in the head, playing "black face," or comically portraying Asians or Native Americans have all seriously changed due to television censors. So if you want to get the real day for the lost Golden Age animation, search for banned cartoons on YouTube.

Finding treasure - you lose consciousness.
Finding a woman – you lose your mind.
Finding truth - you lose faith.
And only when you lose everything – you find freedom.

Welcome to the black witch tower,
where I hide my strength and power,
here I make my wonderful spells,
with my creatures and magical smells.
If you like my tower-stay,
and if you don’t-just go away,
once you stay, I will blind,
your curious and hungry mind.
My tower is the place exciting,
you will want more delighting,
my spells enchant your soul and heart,
and once you come,I know you’ll back!
1. Read We Disappear
2. Interview Scott Heim to see his ideas on #3
3. Brainstorm ideas for a sequel
4. If #2 goes well, write #3
5. Learn Icelandic
6. Get up with Sigur Ros to see if they would be willing to contribute to the soundtrack again
7. You get the idea.
I learned to read with the classic Disney tale, "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." When my parents said it was time for bed, I would get ready for story time and put my pajamas on. Then, my younger sister and I would snuggle up next to my mom on the floor and she would pull out the book. I was three years old, unable to read, but the story was so engrained in my memory that I knew every part by heart.
My sister, who was a little one year old at the time, only cared about the pictures. She would want to flip through the pages quickly, while I enjoyed the story part more. My mom would shorten “Snow White” occasionally because of Lauren whining, or if it was late, and would take parts out. I knew exactly what these parts were. I would always say, “You skipped a part! Go back!”
When my mom would read, she would use her finger to point to what word she was reading. I would follow her finger as it dragged across the page, desperately wanting to know what all of the letters meant. I would pretend to read, but I really was just reciting the story. Over time, I connected what I saw on the page to the words that I spoke; then, I was the one who would read for story time.
One of my Favorite painting ever. This drawing came up to my head when i was looking to all the amazing painting from Disney World, so i decide to make mine but in a skateboard.
This is a full movie project I did for fun for my second and last college motion graphics class that I used various motion graphics projects to put this together.
I found this trailer to this new documentary that is supposedly going to shed light on the American Media and the lines of individual privacy....
