the jungle book

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.
