Pixar Times: The Pixar Perspective (or Lack Thereof) on Race

The Pixar Times has a great article about Pixar's treatment of race. The Pixar Times is clearly a big fan of Pixar (duh), so it's nice to see them acknowledge that there is a problem, that Dreamworks is leading the way in bucking the trend, and exploring the reasons behind the (most likely accidental) whitewashing of the Pixar-verse. They also point out that small improvements are being made (i.e. Mindy Kaling in Inside Out and Pete Doctor's upcoming Day of the Dead movie) without taking them off the hook for ignoring diversity in their previous films. It's a great read. Highly recommend!
