Black Women: Second California family allegedly suing Disneyland for racial discrimination


Sisters, many of us whom grew up back in the day were raised on the Disneyland characters: Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and many others.   Many of us 1970's and 80's babies can recall the good old days when our parents would surprise us with a trip to go to Disneyland in Los Angeles.   However, some of us were not so fortunate to ever visit Disney World in Florida.  Disneyland has been around since 1955 and every generation could never imagine our children getting the cold shoulder and accuse the characters of being racist.   

According to NYDailyNews.com, back in August Jason and Annelia Black, of San Diego, claimed their children and cousins were ignored by someone dressed as the White Rabbit character from "Alice in Wonderland", that's just one case.   Then, Disney officials tried to duck the family's complaint by offering VIP passes worth $500 in exchange for a signed statement clearing the Magic Kingdom of any wrongdoing.     

Think about it sisters, we are living in an age when many gays and lesbians are allegedly fought and won for their rights to marry in some states while we are still facing the subject of racial discrimination across the country.  Interim, some gays and lesbians have been somewhat tolerated in this country while we are still combating the same old issue because of our skin color.   As God-fearing black women, it is time to fully submit to Jesus Christ, because this is a spiritual battle we cannot fight.  As our world tells us in Ephesians 6:12, 'For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.' 

Two black families have allegedly filed a law suit against Disneyland claiming 'Donald Duck' and 'White Rabbit' ignored their children and paid more attention to the white kids.  It's real strange we do not recall such complaints years ago, when many African Americans claim there was more racism in America.   Now, in the 21st century, we are hearing of various situations of racial discrimination and the fact that Disney characters have been allegedly accused of it may reveal we are not as diverse as we seem to be.   It seems like no matter how many interracial marriages there are and bi-racial children in America, racial discrimination has been a difficult demon to combat.  

Sisters, we ask you, are we going back to the era when Dr. Martin Luther King marched the streets in Selma, Alabama for equality?
