This is how it was. Leave it be and learn from it.

Here is the way for Disney and WHV to take care of this problem: have these politically incorrect (I hate that phrase) available strictly to purchase online, this way they won't be embarrassed to have them on store shelves where impressionable young minds might just happen upon them. I wonder if Disney realizes just how big a sale SONG OF THE SOUTH would be for them? I have seen countless websites selling bootleg copies for between $10-20 apiece-that is money that they are losing (and would help make up for A LOT of what they lost on JOHN CARTER...), and with WHV having the Archive label, which is also strictly online sales, they could sell an unexpurgated T&J and perhaps collect the infamous "withdrawn" WB cartoons as one of the Archive titles and kill off the bootlegs once and for all.
