Disney Channel has gotten so soft. Back when I was a kid & a tween (during the 1990s & towards the first 3 years of the 2000s) they would always show films about civil rights, racism & discrimination on the days leading up to Martin Luther King, Jr. Day (and on Black History Month), such as: The Color of Friendship, Remember the Titans & Selma Lord Selma. These films were tough. Sometimes they made me angry & other times they led me to tears. As a kid learning about history & injustice, I'm glad these films weren't sugarcoated for me. I just went on the Disney Channel website to check their schedule & they are not planning on showing anything about the racial tensions of the 1960s & 1970s on January 21st. Nowadays, it seems as if Disney Channel is afraid to show anything that doesn't fall under the category of "teeny pop sugar sweets". They have been like this for many years now. I understand that older generations grow up & that times change, but we cannot rewrite history & act as if the Civil Rights Movement never happened. I also understand that parents want to protect their children from these kinds of things, but they need to know that it's okay for kids to get angry at injustice or to feel sadness when they see a person get a beating just because their skin is a different color. That's how they learn what's right from what's wrong. If we shut our children off from feeling these emotions, they will grow up with less integrity, empathy & compassion than the generation before. My, how things have changed.
