    Alleged Racist Incident at Disneyland: August 2012

    I did a search and it didn't seem to be posted yet. This was in today's local news:

    10News - Local family files lawsuit against Disneyland, claims racism - 10News.com - Team 10 Investigates

    Apparently the family declined Disney's offer for an out of court settlement. Any thoughts on this story?

    Another frivolous lawsuit. So they couldn't sit on the White Rabbit's lap, big deal-get over it.
    I'd like to sit on a certain Rabbit's lap too but I don't think Roger would like it.

    This is what's wrong with society.

    How is it racist if the rabbit did nothing racist?

    lame that cast member probably got fired and was just playing around. Some people I swear just out to make a quick buck for no work. And having read the story a couple times I am still trying to figure out what was racist about it. And if it wasn't about money I hope they didn't get any

    I don't think this proves racist intent(is that even a crime? I have no idea). For all we know, the CM could have been nervous after one of the kids tried to sit on his/her lap. Also the child mentions he "pulled" on the rabbit's hand. How hard or rough did he pull? I don't see a case here from the info given. I see a CM who freaked when a family got a bit overexcited and a bit too physical with the character. But there could be more we don't know.
    In the quest for quality, I have no problem with the characters footing the bill.

    Folks, with no disrespect meant for the OP or the participants in this thread, we will be closing this thread now. It would not be appropriate for any of us to speculate on any aspect of the situation, given the limited information made available so far. Also, the topic has an excellent chance of heading down a number of political directions, and as you all know, we don't do political or religious topics on our general boards.

    Thanks for your understanding.
