More Disney for you!

This is another YouTube video someone put together, this time exploring racism in Disney. Consider the video in terms of the argument it makes. What is the central argument? How is it supported? Is the video persuasive? Could it have done anything differently to be more successful? Consider both the content of the argument and the actual style and set-up of the video.

The central theme of this video was racism in Disney. I have seen most of these movies as a little kid and didn't feel offended I just enjoyed the movie, for this reason, these movies were intended for yound children not 40 year olds with nothing better to do than find problem with a Disney kids movie. This video didn't persuade me in any way, maybe if they would have taken clips from the video's to relate it to, it would have, but all I have to relate to is my childhood memories of these classic Disney movies.
