The Jungle Book, originally published by Rudyard Kipling, promotes stereotypes of non-Western cultures and races as primitive and animalistic.
the scene that relates to this is the king Louie scene, The King Louie, the King orangutan who was speaking to Mowgli. The orangutan was basically based off of African Americans. It also portrays A. A’s as non human, apes, a real insult in the modern world as well. This part in the movie was racist.

I agree with you because when I saw the scene I saw that it could be taken in a racist way
I agree that this scene was particularly racist even though it does not directly show racism, it implies it through the voice and actions of the monkeysl
I agree. This part of the movie definitely feeds into that dominant narrative.
