TRIGGER WARNING: BLATANT FUCKING RACISM.
So. Disney Channel’s relatively new show Jessie features a girl nannying for the adopted children of a pair of hollywood moguls. One of these children is the Indian boy named Ravi, who comes into the clip at about 0:50.
This character is pretty much the most blatant racism I have seen on a tv show, especially directed towards kids, in a very long fucking time, if not IN MY WHOLE LIFE.
The whole character hinges on the idea that Ravi is Indian! and has quirky Indian culture! and doesn’t know about American things! and has a lizard named MR. KIPLING and says things like “I AM A HUMAN SAMOSA!!” when inside a sleeping bag and just
that’s the joke
the joke is that he is Indian
I mean seriously just watch this clip I cannot even talk about this
The fact that this is airing right now and no one is outraged and Disney is AIRING THIS RIGHT NOW
makes me want to punch things and also cry out of fucking frustration this is terrible
Commenting is disabled on the Youtube video but I just thumbs-downed the fuck out of this video.
