- But... but why? What possible purpose could this serve?
CNN is ISIS
- The guy looks like Waluigi stole luigi's clothes.
- I think the rich made upgrades really expensive and all replac…
Youuuuu mother FUCKERS better stop saying 'scraped' instead of scrapped.
Yeah, now that I think about it, upgrades and replacement parts could be an analogy for healthcare, kinda like how zootopia did a thing about racism.
It wasn't about fucking racism
Uh...yes it was. It was painfully obvious, even. Remember the scene with the fox repelant?
something like ''no nick, you're not one of
fox! this was just a precaution''
which is hilarious because predators are more violent than grazing animals. accomplished the exact opposite of zootopia's intention.
Haven't thought about this movie but somehow i imagine it falls into the same trap.
Well that's why they were feared...the whole nighthowler scandal gave herbivores the chance to blame predators for ''reawakening to their primal instincts and bloodlust'' or whatever...then Judie discovered that the flowers used to drug them also worked on herbivores...it all made sense. It wouldn't work with herbivores.
It's not that hard to see dude. It's OBVIOUS. Especially that scene with the fox repellant.
something something they were saying predators and herbivores would evolve to not follow instincts.
...no, they weren't. The idea is that SUPPOSEDLY, everyone HAD evolved and surpassed their instincts and thus they all could, THEORETICALLY, live in harmony, Zootopia being the physical symbol of that harmony. That's what their society believed in, at least superficially...ideally. But, all it took was an occult, clervely-crafted scandal to make emerge all the already-existant prejudice and fear between herbivores and predators...just like it happens in reality; something bad happens, and people start pointing their fingers while the big guys laugh their asses off and continue pulling the strings behind the scenes.
It doesn't GET more obvious than this.
If you still disagree...just watch the movie again. I'm not gonna call you retarded because you're not getting it but dude, trust me, you're

that's the laughable premise though!
Presenting different races as different species is playing exactly into the stereotypes racists use. Species CAN'T just "evolve" past their evolutionary traits. Even dogs still have some elements of their primal nature within them that we have to work around.
IF ANYTHING, the different species represented different nationalities or character stereotypes...the ''russian dudes working for the mafia'' were polar bears, the ''italian mafia'' were those little rodent things, the ''swindler, charming guy'' was nick the fox, most police officers were big, strong animals who'd do well in a fight, the mayor of zootopia was a lion...
It's...an animated movie...they're anthropomorphic animals...it's all used as a metaphor...and as a direct representation of some extreme arguments used to justify racism in the past ( remember social darwinism? ).
And it's not about different species
, it's clearly herbivores vs carnivores. There was no herbivore discriminating other herbivores in the movie...same with carnivores. The main antagonist was literally a textbook example of a herbivore, a sheep, that clearly declared that she HATED all CARNIVORES and wanted HERBIVORES to dominate them all, sheep being on top because, well, she's a sheep, her men were sheep, and all that.
Honestly, I think you didn't really watch the movie.
The ''their primal instincts and natural bloodlust is emerging again! they're all monsters'' is essentially ''blacks are just inferior and naturally prone to violence''.
The ''everyone's evolved past their natural instincts and can now live in harmony!'' is essentially ''racism is a thing of the past...it doesn't exist anymore and whites and blacks can live as equals now!''.
I repeat myself. It doesn't get more obvious than this. I get your point...but it doesn't apply, because, to me, you're not fully understanding the already painfully simple message the movie presents.
reminds me of this
