It wasn't racism. The kid was overlooked by a half blinded employee in a costume. Happens to tons of kids of all races every day. Hell I've seen sir purr pass by some kids and say hi to others. Guess he is racist too?

The wrong thing to do here is assume its racism based on nothing and drive the point home to the kid that if things don't go his way, it's obviously due to racism. That in itself is racist.


Maybe, maybe not, but if I said hi to every (black) person on the street, and turned my nose up at you, you would assume it was racial motivated.

Disney isn't the problem. Disney isn't racist, but the employee very well may be, and didn't want to touch the children. I don't think that is that hard to believe.

If you were wearing a crazy mask that half blinded you and chaos all around, probably not.

If Zod had read the account he'd realize it's a little bit more than just ignoring them. But when you have the much dissonance you tend to make up the story in your head.

Kinda like he knows what happened without even being there.

Do you think racist people seek employment at the most diverse place in the country and are able to pass all if the interviews and personality tests? Doubtful.

I read the account according to her. Ever deal with an angry mother before? Embellishment and assumptions make up most of the conversation.

There have been blatant over the top racist in the NFL (60% black) and NBA (80 something 80% black). Its hard to find a job that isn't diverse. That is an awful argument Zod my boy.

I'm throwing this rhetorical poo out there just to see who says what...

What if there was a white kid standing there, too and Mr. Rabbit didn't "touch" either of them. Why is it safe to assume that 95 times out of 100 it's the black kid/parents screaming racism while the white kid/parents just walk away?

It seems to me anyone who cries racism so easily and frequently has no earthly idea what actual racism looks like.
