OK, get rid of institutional racism. But don't destroy the institutions as well. Or replace them with organizations based on racial or gender quotas. Nothing good will come of it. Look at dysfunctional countries like Lebanon, where power is equally divided based on sectarian identity. The country just rots and rots because nobody can agree on anything. Because they are looking out for only their own tribe. And that's what you get based on just one form of division, religion. American identity politics promotes endless divisions.

From what I remember, they liked the character a lot.
You could find a lot of stationary stuff, toys, t-
shirts and all that kind of things for kids on just
him. Eddy Murphy was a hotter actor back then. And
they liked the fact that a hero from China was in a
Disney cartoon. I wore a t-shirt with a big Mushu in
the back. And it was a very popular t-shirt.

Of course, that was years ago. Mindsets change.

Bottom line, here, MULAN, a story of a young woman surviving nearly impossible odds thru strength of character and personal resolve, has become a story of a young woman having secret MALE magical powers.

Nice going, Disney.
