“Dumbo has always been my favorite Disney film, but when I told someone this they said that it was disgusting because the film has racism in it. When I was young, it didn’t occur to me the crows were supposed to be racial stereotypes. I thought they were nice characters because they didn’t hate Dumbo for how he looked. Now I feel like I’m not supposed to love the film as much as I do”

Haters gonna hate. I never caught onto the race thing until recently actually. :P

Recently as in a few years ago. But a loooong time after I fell in love with the movie.
