Lawyers all over the world draw breath when they watch this famous scene from dumbo. Ill-educated and poor, the crows spend their days being outlandish stereotypes.
However the crows are one of the first examples of a black hero in mainstream cinema. In a continent that had not entirely outlawed lynching yet, some have argued the crows were in fact more progressive than detremental.
Arab-American protests against this film, led Disney to rewrite the 1992 original opening title sequence lyrics, which were acused of being offensive and reliant on outdated and damaging stereotypes of Arab life.
The original lyrics:
I come from a land from a far away place,
where the caravan camels roam.
Where they cut off your ear if they don't like your face,
it's barbaric but, hey, it's home!
Although Disney hailed this as an anti-racist/feminist film, critics note that Mulan is still overly westernised, in terms of features, behaviour and accent.
Further more the film ends with a triumphant Mulan in the Forbidden Palace, with thousands of Chinese bowing to her. This act of cultural defiance marks more of a victory of Western ideals over traditional Chinese ideals.
These opinions are not necessarily my own, but this is a list of Disney characters that have been criticised as being racist.
This is an amalgamation of various lists and sources from other websites.
