Politically correct people really chap my ass. They’re always telling you things like, “it’s African American, not black” and “Mexicans don’t just eat tacos, Chelsea.” Shut up already. On that note:
Come on, Disney. Who really has a group of friends that could be the Hands Around the World*? Other group shows that are/were on TV (Friends, The Smurfs, Golden Girls) know what’s up; good ole homogenized fun.
Don’t get me wrong: Barbie was overdue for a sassy black or red-haired friend, but this whole attempt by kids programming to be PC is ridiculous and contrived, and constructing a group that’s made up of one kid from each ethnicity just isn’t going to cut it.
* Except for hispanics. Nobody likes hispanics.
