Old movies get racism disclaimer added

Recommended Posts


"Disney's new streaming service has added a disclaimer to classic films from its back catalogue, including Dumbo and Peter Pan because they depict racist stereotypes.

"The move follows the launch of Disney+ earlier this week, which bagged more than 10 million subscribers on the first day.

"The advisory, which will run alongside the films, states: "This programme is presented as originally created. It may contain outdated cultural depictions.""

Some older, less PC films, can be very refreshing to watch.  I forget just how buttoned up people are becoming so it is good (sometimes) to hear people say what we, today, are not allowed to say..   So, some may depict, say, misogynism, but the plusses, in my view, generally outweigh the cons.
