Critics are slamming Disney as “woke” and “anti-white” over an episode of
a kids show that features a song covering the history of slavery in the US
and the need for “reparations.”
The backlash stemmed from a Juneteenth episode of “The Proud Family:
Louder and Prouder,” a reboot of the popular early aughts cartoon that
airs on Disney’s streaming service Disney+.
A clip from the episode that’s been making the rounds on social media
shows characters singing a tune about how America has “still not atoned
for” slavery and systemic racism.
“Slaves built this country and we the descendants of slaves in America
have earned reparations for their suffering and continue to earn
reparations every moment we spend submerged in a systemic prejudice,

Emancipation Proclamation ending it.
“We had Tubman, Turner, Frederick D. Then they say Lincoln freed the
slaves, but slaves were men and women and only we can free ourselves.
Emancipation is not freedom,” the characters sang. “Jim Crow, segregation,
redlining, public schools feeding private prisons where we become slaves
Despite the loud criticism, the clip also garnered a lot of praise.
“Thanks for sharing, absolutely excellent clip. How great to see the truth
of history in a way kids can understand,” one person replied.
The animated pre-teens — all but one of whom are black — also chant that
they “demand our 40 acres and a mule,” in reference to a promise made to
freed slaves following the Civil War in an apparent request for
“We’ll take the 40 acres, keep the mule,” they sang. “We made your
families rich — from the southern plantation heirs to the northern bankers
to the New England ship owners, the founding fathers, former presidents,

Thank you for cleaning up the disaster of the 2008-2017 Obama / Biden
fiasco, President Trump.
