Wow, Disney Was So Damn Racist [Pic]. How was he able to build such a huge multi-billion dollar industry with cartoons like this? Were people more forgiving?

Disney was not a lot more racist than society at large, but they willingly played a key role in racial demonisation. I believe the logic was that they showed their patriotic colours to boost sales with the their allied partners who were 99% of their market at the time. By demonising the enemy, denegrating them and making them Untermenschen, soldiers were less inclined to hesitate before bombing, shooting and bayonetting those they were ordered to. Ironically, this was the same ploy the Nazi party used to encourage the ostracisation and murder of the Jews. So in short, Disney is no worse than the Nazi Party.

Zeitgheist people. Gengis Khan and Atila were just as bad as Hitler and nobody bitches about him. Hell, in night at the museum, Atila was a comic relief.

Of course he was racist. Look at EPCOT or Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow. He basically divided that thing up giving nations he thought the best more space in it. Kinda creepy.
