A Post in which I Overanalyze a Disney Movie: Peter Pan

My daughter is 3.  She loves Disney princess movies.  So, I’ve had to watch many of them, multiple times over the last several months.  This has taxed my sanity to the point where I have begun giving them more scrutiny than they deserve.  For example, Peter Pan.

Peter Pan is racist.  Here’s the lyrics to one of the main songs in the movie:

Why does he ask you, “How?”
Why does he ask you, “How?”
Once the Injun didn’t know
All the things that he know now
But the Injun, he sure learn a lot
And it’s all from asking, “How?”

Hana Mana Ganda
Hana Mana Ganda
We translate for you
Hana means what mana means
And ganda means that too

When did he first say, “Ugh!”
When did he first say, “Ugh!”
In the Injun book it say
When the first brave married squaw
He gave out with a big ugh
When he saw his Mother-in-Law

What made the red man red?
What made the red man red?
Let’s go back a million years
To the very first Injun prince
He kissed a maid and start to blush
And we’ve all been blushin’ since

You’ve got it from the headman
The real true story of the red man
No matter what’s been written or said

Now you know why the red man’s red!

“Injun?”  “Red man?”  Racist!  Racist, I say!  If the film were made today that song would not be included.  I’m ashamed to even print the words on this blog.  ASHAMED!
