The reboot of Disney's "The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder" is facing intense criticism over a controversial rap that features children singing about slavery and reparations. The lyrics of the rap argue that America has not done enough to atone for its history of prejudice, racism, and White supremacy and therefore owes Black Americans.
Critics argue that the rap is too mature for the show's young audience, while others argue that the song is an important reminder of the history of racism in America. The rap states, "This country was built on slavery, which means slaves built this country. The descendants of slaves continue to build it. Slaves built this country and we, the descendants of slaves in America, have earned reparations for their suffering and continue to earn reparations every moment we spend submerged in a systemic prejudice, racism, and White supremacy that America was founded with and still has not atoned for."
The lyrics of the rap have sparked a heated debate about the role of children's media in addressing sensitive issues such as slavery and reparations, with some arguing that it is too mature for a young audience, while others believe it is an important reminder of the ongoing impact of America's history of racism.

"We made your families rich," the sound continues. "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."
The Disney+ episode of "The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder" has received widespread criticism for its rap that features children singing about slavery and reparations.

The rap has sparked a heated debate about the appropriateness of discussing sensitive issues such as slavery and reparations in children's media.
