Radio Disney Needs More Diversity

5 Feb

Radio Disney Chicago

I am blessed to have an 11-year-old little sister who listens to Radio Disney.  The music on the station is pretty safe for young people,  and is not really bad on the ears.

While I’ve been hesitant to say anything before now, I must say that Radio Disney needs more diversity.  You can only listen to Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, and The Jonas Brothers for so long.  And, even though KeKe Palmer is part of their musical line-up, a little more soul is needed.

Disney Channel

Who am I kidding?  They need more diversity in programming, too. I watch their Saturday morning shows sometimes, and Raven and Corey are the only Black  people on the station.  London is the Asian character on the Suite Life of Zack and Cody (a little more color.  Cool!). I  don’t know about the other characters because I don’t watch them.  But, I do know more diversity is needed.

One last observation: if it took over 80 years for Disney to get its first Black princess for movies that can be seen, I won’t hold my breath for a more diverse music, which cannot be seen.

    Who knows if Disney will wake up. Perhaps there should be people pitching storylines and story boards at Disney. I think the reason is that there really has not been anyone who has stepped up to the plate. They actually use to have a gal with the same last name as my maiden name – Lipscomb. She was black, and she was a sweetheart. I remember watching with my son when we lived in San Antonio. However, I have not seen her, so I was a bit sad. You are right… there really does need to be more diversity.

    It's great to know that I am not the only one who recognizes this. Do you think they will change if more noise was made?
