  Maya and her friends, including Penny Proud sing a song about slavery demanding reperations and purport theories that Lincoln didn’t free the slaves and that African-Americans are still enslaved in modern-day America via the prison system.

The show’s director, Latoya Raveneau, is no stranger to controversy, last year she said she had a “not-so-gay” agenda saying, “…Meredith Roberts and our leadership over there has been so welcoming to my not-at-all-secret gay agenda. I was just, wherever I could, just basically adding queerness. If you see anything queer in the show — no one would stop me, and no one was trying to stop me.” Now she has turned her attention to race issues in the show aimed at pre-teen children. 

After discovering the town they live in was named after a slave owner, Penny Proud’s friend and activist Maya campaigns to have the town renamed. Penny joins her and together the friend group sings a song that has many claiming Disney has gone too far. Twitter user @jackprosobiecshare the clip on Twitter: 

 

The song repeats the phrase “slaves built this country” along with”We made your families rich. From the southern plantation heirs to the northern bankers to the New England shipowners, the Founding Fathers, former presidents, current senators, the Illuminati, the New World Order.”
