    Walt Disney would be ashamed of what has become of his dream! He may have been a rather ruthless businessman but, he sold his dream with mice and fairytales. Not with racism and hate.

    “What ever you do, do it well. Do it so well that when people see you do it they will want to come back and see you do it again and they will want to bring others and show them how well you do what you do.”

    “As I went walking I saw a sign there And on the sign it said "No Trespassing." But on the other side it didn't say nothing, That side was made for you and me." ― Woody Guthrie

      so we can't be sure he wouldn't have agreed with Limburger right down the line.

      Disney had a nice avuncular public persona, but per insiders in the Mouse Empire, he could be a real bastard to work for.

      He also saw absolutely nothing wrong with using crude racial stereotypes for entertainment. (Servile zebra centaurettes in Fantasia; the Jim Crows in Dumbo; Song of the South; etc.)

      If it's
      Not your body,
      Then it's
      Not your choice
      And it's
      None of your damn business!
