Disney Finds a Cure for the Common Stereotype With ‘Doc McStuffins’ – NYTimes.com
Disney has a very poor history representing people of color. It is only in the last 15 years that heroic Asians have replace sinister siamese cats and happy slaves replaced by a beautiful, resourceful black princess. Doc McStuffins is the Disney Channel’s first children’s show featuring black leads since The Prouds. Doc McStuffins is a 5 year old girl who treated wounded toys. Despite the industry racist dogma that black shows are not “universal” enough to reach white viewer Doc McStuffins is hit in every demographic.
