Dumbo

Disney has taken steps to remove certain aspects of their racist history from their filmography, opting to keep the truly horrifying 1946 movie Song of the South far, far away from Disney+ and removing the racist crows from the streaming version Dumbo, but we still know it was there. Anyone who watches Dumbo for fun is seriously disturbed, especially once you take into account its pseudo-minstrel show featuring a crow named Jim Crow and his troupe of offensive stereotypes. Decider points out that the film’s “Song of the Roustabouts” has horribly racist lyrics, including a couplet that says black laborers “slave until [they’re] almost dead” and throw all of their money away, and while the rest of the film isn’t necessarily racist, it’s definitely disturbing.
