| This is no song of Brer Rabbit
Having a copy of "Song of the South" which this is the politically correct replacement for, I was truly disappointed with this. "Song of the South" is not that great a movie by todays technical standards, but in its day it was revolutionary in the merging of animation and real actors. The Adventures of Brer Rabbit is nothing but modern politically correct trash. The Adventures of Brer Rabbit, which some people may find offensive to their own spiritual belief systems today, lacks any basis in the folk tales of a group of Americans that was part of our heritage. Those folk tales were the story of Brer Rabbit, not this politically correct enhanced trash.

That story (Song of the South) is a part of our history, for better or worse. Slavery, as well as the way the Black actors of Song of the South were treated in Atlanta at the time of Oscar Awards was terrible beyond belief. Anyone today who believes singing happy slaves were a way of life in the old south is an idiot. But America is not the only nation with a history of slavery. Most nations of the world have that practice in their history, some still do today. Stop beating ourselves up over it, and pretending it never existed.

The history of the native American people is an even greater horror story. Some of it caused intentionally by Europeon immigrants to the Americas. Some of it just twists of fate that befell them in the collision of 2 cultures. But what a horror story that is.

Films weren't always based in total reality back when Song of the South was made, neither are they today. But the rewriting of our historical make believe films smacks of another film/story "1984".

Don't tease the people with this stuff, re-release the original movie where Brer Rabbit was made a star "Song of the South".
