Black Family Claims Disneyland Character 'White Rabbit' Wouldn't Hug Their Son (Video)
Jason and Annelia Black, who are African-American, are suing Disneyland because they claim the walk-around character 'White Rabbit' from 'Alice in Wonderland' didn't hug or touch their children because of their skin color (video below).
According to CBS Los Angeles, the Blacks said the person in the White Rabbit costume also acted impatiently as their young kids posed for a picture.
However, when a white family walked up to the White Rabbit, Jason Black said it was quite different: “There were two other kids that came up. The rabbit showered them. Hugged them, kissed them, posed with them, and took pictures. Meanwhile, that made my kids feel horrible."
The Blacks filed a compliant with Disneyland authorities and were offered VIP passes and $500, if they signed a confidentiality agreement, but the family turned down both offers.
The Blacks want a public apology and the employee to be fired.
