D Is For Disney Stands with the Black Community
Racism should never be tolerated, and Disney’s comments make it clear that they agree.
Here at D Is For Disney, I stand with the black community and support people of color. There is no place for racism on this website, and I will never tolerate it.
My sincere hope is that, in time, we are able to eradicate racism and bigotry in this country and across the world.
I truly believe that the ethos of Disney’s stories is about inclusion, not exclusion; about love, not hate; about acceptance, not judgment.
I hope that you and your family are able to stay safe and well in this incredibly difficult and deeply troubling time.
