Black family claims Disney’s White
Rabbit character refused to touch their kids

Yahoo! News, by Claudine Zap

Could an actor playing the White Rabbit be racist? Disneyland is being sued by Jason and Annelia Black, who say their African-American children were treated differently than white kids who approached the “Alice in Wonderland” character for hugs and pictures at the Anaheim, Calif., amusement park. According to Fox5SanDiego.com, 6-year-old Jason Black Jr. approached his favorite character at the park, but was rebuffed. Jason told the station, “I went to hug him, but he turned his back. It’s made me feel sad because I wanted to really hug him.” Older brother Elijah reportedly then tried to hold the rabbit’s hand

I guess my Daughter should sue also. My Granddaughter wanted a picture with the Tangled princess, Rapunzel and she was rudely blown off. She cried... I want a million dollars ...

I was offended that I didn´t get to go at all. So I will sue because I wasn´t greeted by ANY of the Disney characters. When I did go to Epcot (about 8 years ago), I was told that I couldn´t have free beer -- which was also rude.

When I get done with them, they will wish that they never set up shop in a country in which people will sue because they didn´t get everything they wanted -- that´ll show ´em.

It´s too easy to have the kids pose a certain way and then only submit the photos that make your fraudulent case.

If the White Rabbit HAD touched the kids, they´d have said he molested or injured them in some way, so they´d still would´ve sued. That´s the mindset.

The White Rabbit was this 6 year-old´s favorite character at the park? Seriously? Aren´t there more up to date and cooler characters than the White Rabbit that this little guy would be drawn to? Just asking.
Maybe the Cracker Rabbit is racist. Who knows? I once had a very friendly dolphin character attempt to feel me up at a park in Australia.
I didn´t sue.

A few years back Disney had a policy, if my memory is correct, of never settling such claims out of court.

It seemed to work. They are a natural target, loaded with money, and in a business that involves direct dealings with millions of people.

I have a cousin who worked as a bartender in the Orlando area. Several of the people who dressed as Disney characters visited the bar on a regular basis. My cousin commented that some of these Disney people were as foul mouthed as can be, and stated that if parents knew what these people were like that wore the Disney character suit at Disney World, they wouldn´t let their kids within ten feet of them.

I played "Winnie the Pooh" at Disneyland in the summer of 1969, fresh out of High School. I never treated anyone like that though some of the guests would try to mess with us. One time I was attacked by a screaming hoard of Mexican Brownies, that was scary.

I also sexually molested a gal with that big WTP nose, I had her pinned up against a wall, she was laughing hysterically as I had my way.

This law suit is preposterous in so many ways. One, who has ever filed a law suit for "not touching" them. Every one at Disney has all kinds of cameras, not to mention the security cams ALL over the park. So if there was any merit to this and film = evidence existed, this suit would never seen the light of day.

This is smacks of JJackson Jr. shakedown, which under BO´s tenure is now the standard play book tactic in getting other people´s money using the "race card" winning lottery ticket.

The muslims are doing the same thing now, all over the US based upon empowerment the Aff. Act. politicians and PC media liberals are spouting daily in every conceivable market.

Just look at USA network´s anti-discrimination, anti-homophobe, anti-bully public announcement campaign.

Basically, if you are a member of a protected or special interest group it is open season on whitey.

Seriously if there is no viable proof, Disney should counter-claim just on principle alone. Hopefully a judge with guts will summary judgment this law suit.

After remarks he made at the National Action Network conference this week and various actions on voting rights and equality he’s taken over the past several months, MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry is starting to wonder if Attorney General Eric Holder is “the Obama we had been hoping for.” Even though she admitted it’s not entirely fair to “separate” Holder from President Barack Obama, that’s the question the host posed to her panel Saturday morning. “I think he may be the greatest addition to the entire Obama Administration,” Fordham University’s Christina Greer told Harris-Perry, saying the “foundational work”

KIEV/MOSCOW - Armed separatists took virtual control of a city in eastern Ukraine on Saturday and Kiev prepared troops to deal with what it called an "act of aggression by Russia". Pro-Russian activists carrying automatic weapons seized government buildings in Slaviansk and set up barricades on the outskirts of the city. Official buildings in several neighboring towns were also attacked. The developments have increased concerns of a possible "gas war" that could disrupt energy supplies across the continent. "The Ukrainian authorities consider the events of the day as a display of external aggression from Russia,"

Women’s specialty clothing chain Coldwater Creek filed for bankruptcy on Friday and said it will close all of its stores around the country, including 11 in Minnesota. The Sandpoint, Idaho-based company plans to time its liquidation sales to coincide with the traditionally busy Mother’s Day weekend. Coldwater Creek is the latest retailer to seek protection from creditors as consumers continue to manage their household budgets tightly and hold back on discretionary spending. Others to file for bankruptcy include discount chain Loehmann’s, trendy retailer Dots and the plus-sized Ashley Stewart Holdings.

Of the plans that states have hatched for the Affordable Care Act, none has been bolder than that of Vermont, which wants to implement a single-payer health-care system, along the lines of what you might find in Britain or Canada. One government-operated system will cover all 620,000 of Vermont’s citizens. The hope is that such a system will allow Vermont to get costs down closer to Canada’s, as well as improve health by coordinating care and ensuring universal coverage. Just two small issues need to be resolved before the state gets to all systems go: First, it needs the federal

LONDON - NATO says tens of thousands of Russian troops are massed on the border with Ukraine for a potential invasion, yet Western states still lack a strategy to stop Moscow from intervening in its former Soviet neighbors. (Snip) Ultimately, Moscow´s commitment to rebuild the former USSR as its own unilateral sphere of influence may outstrip the determination of Washington and its European allies to stop it. Experts say Moscow has been infiltrating its neighbors ever more deeply, building its influence amongst security forces, government officials and politicians. That, some say, allows it to stir up instability in locations like

ANAHEIM – How do you let visitors with autism, who sometimes have great trouble waiting in line for theme park attractions, go to the front while thwarting other guests who cheat? Disney said it tried to solve the issue in October with a new policy, igniting furor from some quarters. Last week, 16 families with autistic children filed a lawsuit against Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, which includes Anaheim’s Disneyland and Disney California Adventure, saying the new policy violates the Americans with Disabilities Act. The suit, which was filed in Los Angeles, seeks an unspecified amount of money and a

Two new surveys clearly show that the number of people who lack health insurance in the United States has dropped — but largely not because people have enrolled in Obamacare exchanges. (Snip) What Gallup doesn´t dive into is where people are gaining insurance. That´s where the new survey from the RAND Corporation comes in. Interestingly, RAND discovered that the vast majority of new insurance coverage came not from enrollments in the Obamacare exchanges, as you might expect. Instead, it was heavily from expansions of coverage by employers and from the expansion of Medicaid — a component of the Affordable Care

While the purpose of Tuesday’s hearing was to pick through the State Department’s budget, it was Kerry’s record that came under scrutiny as his old colleagues on the committee accused him of taking on too many responsibilities with too few results. “I think you’re about to hit the trifecta,” Sen.

The sample of claims data—considered a preliminary look at whether new enrollees are sicker-than-average—also found that prescriptions for treating pain, seizures, and depression are also proportionally higher in exchange plans, according to Express Scripts, one of the nation’s largest pharmacy benefit management companies.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C.

President Obama labeled complaints about voter fraud “bogus” and accused Republicans of cynically trying to prevent Americans from accessing the polls in a fiery speech Friday at a civil rights forum hosted by Al Sharpton. Obama argued that attempts in some states to impose new voter identification restrictions were actually efforts by Republicans to make “it harder, not easier to vote.” And the president said that while voter fraud should be prevented, it rarely occurred. “So let´s be clear, the real voter fraud is the people who try to deny our rights by making bogus arguments about voter fraud,” Obama said.
