    Wow... seems like we haven't come such a long way after all.
    Most people still think the current generation is a pussy one, living in old thought concepts of how things should be.
    They don't get that becoming more sensitive and empathetic will be very important in the future to avoid wars etc. but doesn't mean you cannot kick someones ass if you have to.

    Meanwhile, as our country did all kinds of bad things to others in nations close and far, we americans are upset over what is depicted in film as if this decides the fate of people. Talk about convoluted morality. Fred Nietzsche would have a field day with this stuff!!!

    one of the trops would be if you were a boss / Owner of company ,You could smack around your employees. I used to believe this was true when seeing so many TV shows where the Boss terrified everyone and could just about do anything to anyone. What would you do if your Boss smacked you ?

    I wonder if the creators of this video actually saw some of these movies they were quick to deem as racist. Some of these films were trying to imply the opposite.

  • Derry Sexton

    I see a lot of comments actually trying to validate some of these things on this list or going to the extreme in the opposite direction...

    Here's my two cents:

    1.) I don't give a Flying Ugly Cake Killer if some slaves were treated "well"...a human being actually "owning" another human being as if they were a pet is COMPLETELY WRONG!!!! Even if some were okay with being slaves, it's because they did not know any better or were conditioned to believe that their status was okay. I actually own Song of the South, beings it was released in Canada and I bought a copy at a convention. It most assuredly glamorizes this. It's taken me years just to be able to sit through it, but I would still take it over that atrocity known as Green Pastures.

    2.) Nobody should be striking anyone...unless, maybe if they were struck by said person first, and even then it depends. Hollywood back in the day made it perfectly okay to strike women to put them in their place. Wasn't cool then, and definitely not now.

    3.) Every once and a while, someone will still slip a racial stereotype or caricature into the national conscious. Uhm, no. There is simply no need to paint yourself a different color to portray someone. If it is used to satirical effect, Like Downey Jr's character in Tropic Thunder, that's one thing. But to pass it off as something that represents that particular group of people in real life?!? Get the fudge out of here!

    4.) Some of these should have been victims of progress...the smoking one, violence in PG movies, casual attitudes about bullying (although it was because of the casual attitude that some of us had to take matters into our own hands with dealing with bullies. I've been in plenty of fights having to stand up for myself to bullies because no one would do anything. That shouldn't have always been the case). But any type of discrimination is a no-no. The casual attitudes toward homophobia and slavery should have definitely been done away with.

    But, who were the ones driving these attitudes in cinema in the first place? Honestly, we're all at fault to a degree, but mostly those who were in positions of power.

    I completely disagree with this list, stereotyping is funny. I didnt hear about "white facing" this channel is biased bullshit. The only thing worse than watching this list is listening to the liberal cuntbag narrorating it. No!!!! Progress according to you is horseshit. I've been offended, you've been offended, we've all been offended but the point is to not be a complete pussy about it and stop ruining creativity and movie magic altogether. If you dont want to see it, don't watch it. Much like this page. No more for me WATCHMOJO. You can fuck yourselves in a peanutbutter faggy assed gangbang, vomit on eachother and die for all I care.

    P.S. FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Anyone who hasn't seen "Song of the South" should watch it before criticizing it. I'm betting that the folks at WatchMojo just ran with the "Disney is embarrassed" line when they made this video. What's amazing is that Disney was so "embarrassed" by the depiction of race relations that they did release it on video and laserdisc in the rest of the world. Perhaps it was less about embarrassment and more about avoiding political fallout at home. Honestly, I do see some of the romanticism of life on the plantation, and I get why many people don't like that. However, I also see the portrayal of Uncle Remus as the one truly good and trustworthy adult in the movie. Everyone loves Remus, regardless of his color. The two main white children don't see an old black man, but instead someone who brings joy and happiness into their lives. When Johnny thinks about his "happy place," he realizes that it's the time he spends with Uncle Remus. Is it a perfect movie? No. But is it a racist movie? Absolutely not. Watch it with an open mind and tell me otherwise.

    This video epitomizes what is wrong with America and why someone like Donald J. Trump got elected. Political correctness gone way to far. The whole purpose of movies is escapism from real life.
    This video makes me want to just throw up. i have never bullied anyone or been mean or nasty to members of the LBGTQ community or engaged in domestic violence. but somehow i'm a bad person for enjoying some of these movies. As my grandfather told me the most homophobic, racist and gender biased book on the planet is the holy bible.
