There’s this black boy and this Oriental girl and they get naked and proceed to take a bath together…

My 2 year old nephew watched this happen on TV.  My mother-in-law called me and reported what they saw.  She explained it this way:

A black boy and an Oriental girl are taking a bath together while the narrator tells them which body part to wash and to remember to get every spot! They were watching TV at 9:30 AM on Friday morning.

This show wasn’t exactly a program but just a clip in between two shows.  It was aired on the Disney Channel during the Disney Playhouse line-up.  Ok – so they weren’t real children either; they were cartoons. But they were male and female! Clearly.  All those worrying about Bert and Ernie may be calling the network as I type reporting obscenity in the tub with these children!

I think this is amusing!  Before, I would think nothing of this clip. Although since taking this class, I am sure this will outrage some people. Where do you draw the line? And the fact that they are from two different races – will add to some’s horror. My mother-in-law laughed.  We seem to look at everything now as pornographic since I started taking this class. But honestly, if Spongebob is a problem, Buster the Bunny a problem, and Bert and Ernie a problem, I tend to think this will be one too!
