Conservatives are coming for Disney in droves after an episode of The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder mentioned historically accurate facts. *gasp*

The Disney+ reboot of the animated series The Proud Family sparked outrage from conservatives over a spoken word performance that laid out the role slavery played in building the country—during Black History Month.

It's no secret that staunch conservatives have called for the repression of education that paints White people in a bad light, regardless of its validity and accuracy.

Legislatures have even passed a ban in several states, with bans pending in several more states, on teaching critical race theory (CRT) which would allow others to view systematic norms through the lens of racial bias.

So it's no wonder that these same White folks would have an issue with a cartoon that discusses slavery, its contribution to the foundation of America, the lingering effects that still bring challenges to Black citizens and communities, and the idea of reparations.

Of course, the episode may be a difficult watch...because slavery actually happened and we should be remorseful.

But conservatives have been begging for decades to let the past be the past, and, in more recent years, have claimed that racism is all but gone in this great nation.

Many conservatives also commented on the "woke" reboot of the series.

But in reality, The Proud Family has always touched on social justice issues.

But that certainly doesn't matter to the angry mob.

At the risk of falling on deaf ears, as it so often does, supporters of the information and awareness spread through the episode countered in their replies.

The misinformation and misdirected anger spread by the far right only goes to show how much more of this kinds of content we truly need.
