This Week’s T’d Up: Walt Disney, still unsettled by Aunt Jemima


Wednesday, a few FSU football prospects were casually taking in the sights and sounds of one of America’s most desired attractions for the 3-6 year old crowd.  At one point during the day, they were politely asked to leave, did not immediately respond, and then, were of course banned for life.  Wait what? Life?  You can get a lifetime ban from Disney World?


Yep, and it turns out that 46 people were banned for life in the past two weekends.  Of that, 45 were black or hispanic.  Wait wait wait… let’s back up a second before we start throwing bigotry around…

 That the reason four grown men would pay $82 a day to hang out in the Magic Kingdom escapes me is not the point.  They may have been trying to track down Bobby Bowden again.  He’s never been the same since he spent that afternoon in FantasyLand and got “elected Sheriff.”  Poor guy.

The gentlemen in question were ejected as a part of the anti-gang, anti-loitering policy, not to be confused with the Peter Warrick Free Shoes initiative.

 Parents of the future transferees allege that racial profiling is to blame.

“I keep thinking to myself, ‘This is crazy,’ ” said Mark Nugent, stepfather of Vincent Williams, football star at Ridge Community High School in Polk County. “Once they realized they weren’t gangbangers, why didn’t they let them go? They took their pictures. They fingerprinted them. And treated them like common criminals.”

Is Walt Disney a racist?  Can’t say.  But looking back at his body of work and criticism I’d say the Seminoles might just have a case.


And that’s leaving out the hidden boner scene in The Little Mermaid.

Walt Disney (despite being deceased), for setting a policy discouraging America’s finest young adults newest crop of all-purpose athletes from having WDW fun, for forcing them to take a mug shot years before their time, and for making it so damned hard to find the word “SEX” in The Lion King on VHS in 1996 (despite pausing at all the right times… wait go back… stop… go back… okay play.. wait… wait… there it is!!), you are hereby:


T’d Up is a weekly column that runs on Fridays selecting, in our humblest of opinions, the biggest sports Tool of the Week.

    I found the answer…Disney is a name that originates from Normandy. The french are as*holes. Walt (short for Walter) means “ruler of the army.” The middle name, Elias, means “God will gather.” So, lets recap, Walt Elias Disney literally means; Ruler of an army, religious, from France. With this name and the fact he lived during the 40’s it is safe to say Walt Elias Disney is a Nazi and is a leader of the KKK, and probably a Jeff Gordon fan.
