“Song of the South,” which Disney chairman BobIger was born to a Jewish family in New York City. told shareholders in 2020 the movie was “just not appropriate in today’s world,” Its employed racist tropes and painted a rosy picture of race relations in the antebellum South.
If there is a popularity contest going on, it’s in Florida right now between Walt Disney World and Governor Ron DeSantis. This governor has decided to take on Disney, this company has imposed its morality on your and my traditional American values too many times in the name of political correctness. I’m personally happy with Ron DeSantis focusing on this Media Group that has too much influence on our kids. Too many people of influence think sweeping history underneath the rug is the answer to tomorrow’s empowerment of all Americans.
What was about the controversial Song of The song “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” won the 1948 Academy Award for Best Original Song and Mr. Baskett received an Academy Honorary Award for his performance as Uncle Remus. Since its initial release the film has attracted controversy, with critics characterizing its portrayal of African Americans and plantation life as racist.
And Disney’s political ass-kissing smells to me. The stench of racism will be defeated if we employ inclusion. As me aka “Uncle Gregory” a product of victim mentality thinking born in New York City. I thank God today I know there’s nothing holding me down but “Gravity and lack of hard work”.
Walt Disney spent many years before political popularity pulse reading to make Song of the South, having long enjoyed the source material, the Uncle Remus stories written by Atlanta newspaper columnist Joel Chandler Harris. As a teenager in the 1860s, Harris moved onto a plantation called Turnworld, home of publisher and slave-owner Joseph Addison Turner. During the Civil War, Harris worked for Turner on The Countryman, a proudly Confederate newspaper, but he spent as much time in the slave quarters, listening to the stories shared by Turner’s slaves. After the war, Harris became a writer for the Atlanta Constitution, and his Uncle Remus stories catapulted him into infamy. Uncle Remus was a character who told the same outlandish stories Harris heard from Turner’s slaves, centering on mischievous forest animals Brer Rabbit, Brer Fox, and Brer Bear. He wrote them in an exaggerated, caricatured version of a Southern Black patois of the era.
