How Walt Disney Pictures Teaches Race Culture to Children

“I know now that race culture is, at least in part, perpetuated by unconscious ignorance displayed through modern day media.”  Rev. Renee

Walt Disney Pictures Introduced Its First Black Princess to Little Girls in 2009. Maybe They Shouldn’t Have.

Many white people say they are not racist….period.

In light of all that is going on in our society with the recent death of George Floyd at the hands of police, I thought it timely to educate the public about how race culture is taught to children through media.

Walt Disney Pictures has done its part in introducing a number of different cultures to the world in the form of its paradigm-forming movies and animations.  They have given us white, asian, hawaiian, middle eastern, indian and black protagonists, however for the purposes of this post, I will focus on the black princess, Tiana, leading lady in the movie The Princess and the Frog.

Dream Blog: Treasures in the Sand

It’s been a minute since I posted a dream, and this one was clear and eye-opening so here goes.

Astrological backdrop:  Sun, Neptune and Mercury Retro in Pisces.

Beautiful Gifts are Lost

A male family member of mine purchased beautiful shoes (size 5) for his wife and other presents for each of his 3 children.  Somehow, I was able to show the gifts to my mom and he moved from a training restaurant (where all trainees were to make entrees from the main menu) to a car, where he lost the gifts along the highway.  My impression was that it was from carelessness.

We were both distraught because the shoes he bought his wife were beautiful and unique.  Also, the toys for the kids were special, exquisite and from the heart.

The Gifts Are Recovered

Somehow we ended up at the beach with an African-American man who was a well-known spiritual worker.  We told him we’d lost the gifts and needed his help finding them, thinking he’d point us in the direction of where they were lost.  The man, my family member, other strangers and me were all kneeling in the sand.

The spiritual man began digging in the sand and to our surprise, one of the boxes was buried there.  He continued digging and all of the boxes were discovered.  One box for his youngest daughter was a bit smaller, but actually more appropriate than the original box he’d had her gift in.

We were filled with joy and discovered the gifts stayed with us, never too far away.

End Note:

His youngest daughter was in the backseat consoling her oldest sister who was afraid to learn how to drive because it meant she’d eventually have to leave her parents and become independent.  I mentioned to my family member that his young toddler daughter was actually an old soul that was thousands of years old.

I hope something in this dream helps you to be inspired and not to cry over what you’ve lost that was not ever lost at all!
