She does. It is Sleeping Beauty that looks like an anglo beauty queen. And now we have Pocahontas and Mulan. I wonder if eventually Disney will have a gay or lesbian lead cartoon character....

ˇBienvendido a la magia del Disney!

I find this all very hard to believe. Next time, please take a picture of this "Spanish Disneyland", or maybe a youtube video. I have never seen this at Disney, Knots, Six flags...ever.

It must be slow in this forum...the greymatter stories are coming out.

Dude, if you are going to write in Spanish, make sure you use proper grammar.

Bienvenido a la magia de Disney......

This is what I think, Eva.

I think that the OP had a bad experience at DL and was annoyed by a different language being spoken as well as his wife being hit on the ass (never has been specified whether it was on accident or not). I was curious as to why he was bothered by the conversations of others in a public place since they weren't about him or to him. So..do I think he's lying? Nope. But several other posters in this thread have stated that their recent experiences at DL have been different. All that really means is that they didn't go on the same day he did.

I don't disagree with his reasons for being upset so much as I'm trying to understand them and to an extent I can.

Do I think he's racist? A bit, perhaps.

Do I think you're racist? Damn skippy, with your blathering about "white culture".
Define 'White culture', please. Remember that us White folks come in quite a spectrum of skin colors. Too; quite a few full blood Asians also have porcelain white skin-------maybe their Chinese, etc. culture is also 'white'?

Funny that a Hispanic can be of any race yet it is OK for some folks to tout Hispanic culture.

Side note: ocexpo (the OP) is in part Hopi Indian: calling him a White supremacist is hilarious

That I doubt any time soon being that Disney corporate is quite Old School conservative.

Although; there may be a movie or two dealing with Gays that was put out by Walt Disney Films.

Why should I define "white culture"? I'm not the one constantly using the term, other than responding to it's use.

If I had to hazard a guess how the person who's using it in this thread defines it, I'd say it had something to do with cartoons.

Wow...missed this part.

I find it weird that you're trying to say that I called the OP a white supremist.

There's a difference between thinking that someone might perhaps be a bit of a racist and believing that person to be a David Duke clone.

Or a Judge Leander Perez clone?

Semi-nice try.

I don't suppose you can explain or even care to try to explain your comments about me equating the OP with white supremecy.

It's clear that some people here aren't interested in discussion and would rather use this forum as a place to vent their frustrations about a world that is changing in ways that they don't like.

Normal enough, I suppose.

The resentment towards illegals due to the failing economy and the lack of jobs for citizens is something I can understand. The comments about language et al are a bit of a stretch for me.

Why is it such a stretch for you?

Language is part of a country's national identity and culture. And in the U.S., our language is English.

We are the UNITED States. And what unites us is a common culture and a common language. This is the way it is in all countries. In Japan, the Japanese culture and language unites the Japanese people. In Mexico, the Mexican culture and Spanish language unites Mexicans. In Russia, the Russian culture and Russian language unites Russians. And so on and so on.

The problem is, there are those who feel that the U.S. shouldn't have a common culture and language. People like yourself feel that the U.S. belongs to everybody, and that it should be a complete free-for-all and cacaphone of different languages, cultures and religions. Well, it's a nice idea, but it doesn't work. All this division accomplishes is the creation of culture clashes, language barriers, and religious and political strife.

We Americans see the deterioration of our culture and language, and the OPs post is a perfect example of the sadness and concern we feel as a result.

You may call us racist or xenophobic but, on the contrary, we are simply a nation of people who have shared a common culture and language for over two centuries now, and we are devastated as we witness the slow rape and division of our national identity.
