New Disney Cartoon Teaches Preschoolers About 'Microaggressions'

Do you want to make sure your toddler knows the meaning of the word "microaggression?" Is it important to you that black preschoolers be convinced white women are scared at the sight of them? Are you worried your child doesn't hate police officers enough? Well then, Disney has the show for you! 

On Wednesday, February 2nd, Rise Up, Sing Out, a series of eight animated musical shorts, was released on both the Disney+ streaming service and on Disney Junior.

The series is executive produced by Latoya Raveneau, director of the woke cartoon The Proud Family: Louder and Prouderand Ahmir "Questlove” Thompson and Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter from the band The Roots.

The cartoon shorts are the musical equivalent of putting your child through a radical diversity, equity and inclusion seminar, but less entertaining.

The first episode, 'Gather Round,' displays the Marxist black power symbol as it sings, "Racism in the world affects me and you and it's time to end it now. Let's come together. We'll show you how." 


By episode three, 'Speak Up!,' preschoolers are taught how to be neurotic in their social interactions. The episode opens with Gabriel, the child of a Hispanic mother and black father, being dropped off at school by his mom. A little white boy says, "Hey Gabriel. I didn't know that was your mom. Your skin is so much darker than hers." Then another black child named Taniya comes out of the school doors to educate the kids about the word "micro-aggression."


Taniya: Hold it! Did that comment make you feel uncomfortable? That's a micro-aggression.

Gabriel: What's a micro-aggression?

Taniya: A micro-aggression is when someone says or does something that makes you feel bad, sometimes just because of your race.

The natural tendency of preschoolers to innocently notice differences is portrayed as an instant cause for offense and a sign of racism. Of course, the "micro-aggressions" shown in the episode are only committed by white characters. There is never any indication that a child might make an "uncomfortable" comment to a white child about, say, ginger hair or freckles.

But if you really want your kids to feel bad about their race, whether white or black, skip straight to episode five, 'Let Love Overrule.' In that episode, a black preschooler named Kingston and his elementary-aged brother Terrell are walking down a suburban street when a white woman sees them. She looks at them with fear and crosses the street quickly. The implication is that a white woman is so naturally racist that she will shudder at the sight of black children. Terrell then sings to his little brother. 


Terrell: Sometime when people see you all they're seeing is a skin tone. They don't wanna know you. They're afraid of what they don't know. Cause they don't understand you. Sometimes they refuse to try, even look you in the eye or say 'hi' when passing by.

Ominous police lights appear as Terrell tells Kingston, "If police slow down and watch you sometimes, they might try to stop you or say you're a different guy. Sometimes they're just passing by."

As a result of this little sing-along, white preschoolers absorb the message that white people are naturally racist, and black toddlers are taught that police officers and white people, particularly white women, are likely to distrust them for the color of his skin.

Left-wing "entertainment" does not care about providing little ones with joy or fun. It only cares about radical indoctrination. Companies like Disney push the left-wing agenda on kids constantly.

"Bigotry, bias and stereotyping aren't simple topics for anyone to tackle, but the talented creative team did a thoughtful job in delivering memorable songs and stories that reflect the opportunity storytellers have to help parents as they raise healthy, thoughtful and well-rounded kids," said Joe D'Ambrosia, senior vice president of original programming at Disney Junior in a statement.

No, Mr. D'Ambrosia, these shorts will only help parents teach their kids how to grow up neurotic, race-obsessed and afraid.
