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.

Boldly Racist and Distasteful!

This movie had too many racial stereotypes against white people and Asians. For example, one of the main characters say, "We are not going to be like every other stupid white family in a horror movie." Another calls a white girl “Shirley Temple”. This could have been such a good family movie, but now my kids will never watch it.

Racial Division Propaganda

Just another show promoting the RACIAL division, repeating the past all over. This show is very offensive, our country will never move forward if we allow the media and Hollywood to continue to drive division with senseless racial slurs in the shows and movies our kids grow up watching.
