By condoning the airing of this series, Disney makes itself a party to the violence resulting. I understand that the Church of Scientology has had hundreds of threats of death, violence or vandalism incited by the show.
How would you feel, Ms. Newton, if Disney decided to fund and air a program which depicted the majority of Black youth as under-educated criminals…or the majority of young black women as unwed mothers? Wouldn’t you be outraged?
Since all organizations who’ve engaged in discrimination and bigotry have eventually ended up having to apologize later, and had to make up for the damage they did, how far does Disney dare push the inevitable liability it will incur as a result.
Our ministers and parishioners have provided relief in disasters around the world, helping victims of floods, riots, bombings, tornadoes, tsunamis, brush fires, and countless other natural and man-made disasters.
I don’t know the motives behind Rinder’s use of the phrase in insulting me since I have never even met this man and he knows nothing about me. But I do think I speak for Asian-Americans in that we find it insulting when someone mocks our heritage. I am proud of my name and who I am.
Mike Rinder, who works for Disney under the umbrella of ABC and A&E, continues his steady stream of racist jokes maligning me by mocking my Asian surname on his personal website with a slur that is also homophobic.
