From the highly racist and tumultuous year of 1964 in the USA, the “It’s a Small World” show at Disneyland. Of course, it’s a glorious show, and I’ve been on that ride many times. I probably even rode it in 1964.
After you watch the video for a while, you realize that it’s a great anti-racist and even anti-ultranationalist message. There’s no need to elaborate on it; it speaks for itself.
Sure, humans are different, but the more time you spend with humans from all over the world, you realize that they really are not all that different.
Men act like men, everywhere on Earth. Women act like women, all over the world. And humans act like humans, around the globe. To me, this implies that despite Communist idiot theory, maleness, femaleness and humanness are not really social and societal constructs and formations after all. Instead, these identities are probably coded heavily in our genes. If you don’t believe me, make a friend from or in another part of the world. You’ll be surprised how much they are alike the Americans around you.
This one video is worth 100 Tim Wise lectures and Abagond posts. If you’re talking anti-racism, what more is there to say than this simple message?
