Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Never even saw the movie but was disturbed it was too WHITE? I hope the melting pot isn't finished, but there are ominous signs our day is done. I guess the ACLU didn't review it before its release. God bless The Land of the Free and Home of the Brave, or what is left of it. Forgive me for being white. A real COMMON SENSE review, teaching kids to form an opinion bases SOLELY ON RACE and not content. Sad, this site is SAD!
