Grievance Theater: Black Family Sues Disney Over ‘Racist’ White Rabbit

Posted by on Feb 07, 2013 at 7:39 am

Damn, that rabbit looks so racist we’re surprised he doesn’t have a hood over that head.

A trip to the happiest place on Earth was anything but for a Spring Valley family who’s claiming they are victims of racism and are planning to file suit against Disneyland.

The Black family took a trip to Disneyland in August and their son Jason Black Jr. met his favorite character The Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.

“I went to hug him but he turned his back,” the 6-year-old said. “It’s made me feel sad because I wanted to really hug him.”

“The Rabbit was turning his back on him like he didn’t want to touch him,” said his older brother Elijah Black.  “Then I went up and tried to hold his hand but he kept flicking my hand off.”

The family filed a lawsuit against the Anaheim theme park, claiming the person playing the character of The Rabbit discriminated against their children because they are black.

“I asked the rabbit, I said ‘he wants to hug you,’” said the boy’s mother, Annelia Black. “He’s like twirling his fingers, like hurry up take the picture.”

Their father said it was obvious The Rabbit was avoiding them.

Perhaps they’re just paranoid. Or more likely looking for a quick payday. How do they know the person playing the rabbit wasn’t black? Maybe the rabbit had to go take a leak and wanted them to move along.

Two white kids approached The Rabbit moments later.

“[The] Rabbit showered, hugged, kissed and posed with them and took pictures. That made my kids feel horrible, it made us as adults feel horrible,” said Jason LeRoy Black Sr.

The family said they immediately went to the management office to complain, showing them photos that they say indicate the rabbit was trying to avoid touching them.

Absurd. Now come to think of it, since whites are supposedly in the minority in California, can’t the fake rabbit sue for discrimination?

    One pill makes you larger and one pill makes you small and the one that mother gives you don’t do anything at all….

    So if you go chasing rabbits…..

    That big clock around his neck is a ripoff of Flava Flav.

    Therefore: racist.

    So…isnt the whole point of the characters is to have fun with the kids? I’ve seen many characters at DL have fun by playing high five with the kids, then taking their hand away at the last second! That’s what they do! There’s more to this story…..did these little bastards try to kick, punch, or pester the “rabbit”? And then…..the family said they saw the rabbit hugging “white kids! Did they follow this rabbit all over the park just to see if in fact the rabbit only touched white kids?

    Once again, somebody wants something for nothing!

    He’s late! He’s late! For a very important klan meeting!

    A friend went to the Disney Animal Kingdom park with his family a few years ago and tried to buy popcorn from a black young lady working at a cart and she said they were closed. He walks away and sees a black family immediately buy popcorn from the same girl. He should have sued the park?

    How do these folks know racism was the motivator here? Maybe the rabbit was late for a very important date; maybe he had to take a leak; maybe he heard Elmer Fudd was looking for him. Oh well, if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

    Spencer, you’re right on.

    This is from someone who grew up in that town, and resultingly went to the park WAY too many times with visitng frinends and relatives.

    Many kids, whose parents seemed to have no control over them (or even care what they did), would push, punch, heckle, etc. these characters with impunity.

    Who would you rather spend your time with? A kid with wonder in his eyes, or a cretin with a foul mouth who kept pulling your tail?

    They are also only allowed to wear the head of those costumes for 15 minutes. Then they leave and are replaced by another actor. I suspect the little darlings were either misbehaving or the guy was trying to accommodate kids that have been waiting longer to have their picture taken with him.

    Many years ago, when Disney Florida had just opened, a couple of friends dropped acid and went in. They say they were immediately accosted by Goofy who put them in head locks, gave them noogies, and wouldn’t release them. They thought Goofy could tell that they were tripping. Anyway, they both ran back to the car and spent the next 8 hours sitting there afraid to come out.

    What if it was racism. Not the “white” part but the behavior. There are mutts out there.

    Welcome to the new normal. America is a nation of wheezing victim groups furiously filing grievances for every perceived offense. The future is damned.

    There is a limit to how much an employee has to kowtow to coloreds. I don’t work with them at all. The actor has the right to like which kids he wants to. No one owes colored kids hugs. The fambly is a bunch of whiners.

    The cast member may not have even seen the kid.

    One thing — there are cameras ALL OVER the park. Disney’s not stupid; they have video of what happened. There’s also always a “helper” with the fur characters, because those costumes aren’t the easiest things to get around in and somebody has to keep track of the time. The helper will also tell what happened.

    Never been to Disney’s place; do most parent’s like it when strangers fondle their children?

    If Obama had a son, he’d look like the mad hatter, or something. What’s the script du jour?

  14. Mr. Saturn on 8/08/13 at 11:09 am

    Blue Hen,

    No The Mad Hatter is far too rational to be anything like Obama. I’d say Obama is more like the Queen of Hearts.

  15. Martin King on 8/08/13 at 11:24 am

    Barak Obama, affirmitave action, the democrat party and political correctness have set race relations back more than fifty years. Blacks will be unable to overcome, in the next fifty years, the hole dug by Obama and his fellow travlers.

    Man those evil racists are everywhere and slavery just ended Wednesday. Be careful out there Bull Connor is waiting around every corner with a firehose!

    Maybe the little moolies smelled so bad the White Rabbit couldn’t stand to get too close……
