Now Playing : The Lone Racist :
We (Natives) don’t care what American pop culture says about Tonto’s importance to America. We did not ask to be stereotyped in film. No one ever asked Natives what we thought. Now we are supposed to believe that this role is “okay” because someone wealthy and famous says its honoring? The other problem is there are whole generations that don’t even know this type of role is racist. Disney banked on this fact heavily, lost and will continue to until they rectify the matter.
