Peter Pan and What Makes The Red Man Red
He was particularly concerned with the treatment of Native people. He pointed out that calling them savage is like calling them animals, and that the song What Makes the Red Man Red was one of the worst songs that he had ever heard. He further went on to point out that Captain Hook is a White man and that calling Natives, red men was absolutely racist. Can I take a moment to have a bit of Momma's pride? I knew that Destruction understood a good deal about racism as it applied to Black people, but I wasn't sure if he understood that racism is something that can happen to all people of colour until that moment. Even adults constantly miss this point, because inevitably conversations about race become a binary in which White and Black are constantly debated, while other minorities are specifically erased from the conversation. Race cannot be reduced to Blackness vs. Whiteness, but people of colour versus Whiteness or White supremacy.
