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.

Racist, homophobic garbage

Sure, let your kids watch this if you want to promote cultural stereotypes about African Americans, Mexicans, the working poor and gay people. Words cannot do justice to this appallingly offensive film: Papi the chihuahua's old neighborhood is "colorful" says his (literally) white wife; the story is interspersed with Papi's cliched and inaccurate fables of Aztec life … I can't go on … I'm embarrassed I let my children watch this, but, well, how do you explain cultural consumerism and the privileged position of the Anglo eye to a 7 and a 3 year old?

Too much consumerism
