Racism in the Jungle Book

I liked what the Jungle Book group said about their movie. Saying that Disney showed stereotypes through their animals was good. I never really noticed how the apes might have been stereotypes of African people. Having them say that they want to be like humans is definitely a stereotype of how African people are less civilized than everyone else. I also like their points about how the jaguar might also be a stereotype. Overall, I agreed with their presentation and the points that they made.

    I agree with the statement that there are subtle acts of racism depicted in The Jungle Book. How the apes are stereotyping people of color and how they are less civilized than everyone else
