Two-Nine-Year Olds’ Magnificent Open Letter to Disney About Racial and Gender Stereotypes.
I wrote my previous post as a humor piece with the sharp end of a stick aimed at Disney. These two third graders however, explained the unsettling aspects of Disneyland/World better than I did. Please click on the link above and read their letter to the chairman of Walt Disney Parks. It’s lucid and heartfelt, pointed yet respectful. Maybe if my generation had been as wise at nine as they are, I wouldn’t have a problem with the idea of taking my grandkids to Disneyland today.
