Pastor Jesse Jackson is embroiled in the Sesame Place controversy, which erupted after various black families accused the theme park of discriminating against their children.
corresponding TMZJackson wrote a letter to Sesame Place and SeaWorld, which has licensed theme park characters, saying the changes needed to be made following the social media backlash. The letter reportedly suggested that Sesame Place Philadelphia hire more black employees and hire an African-American company for bias training.
Sesame Place, owned by SeaWorld, has not come up with solutions that I believe will eliminate the culture that has infected this theme park with discriminatory practices. We need SeaWorld to take a stand against past actions and do whatever it takes to end discriminatory practices at its theme parks.
As we previously reported, multiple families have banded together to file a class-action lawsuit alleging Sesame Place staff intentionally ignored black children during the park’s parade. The first video shows an attendant dressed as Rosita nodding at two young black girls who asked for a hug, then hugging other non-black children in the parade.
Reverend Jesse Jackson continued to condemn the park, likening the alleged incidents to excessive police use of force against black people.
When I saw the Now Vial video that Judy Brown shared, I was shocked but sadly not surprised. We have seen too much discrimination in the form of the police force, just as we have seen illegal employment practices, but seeing discrimination against our innocent children is a line we must not allow the enemies of progress to believe they can cross. “Together, we must let SeaWorld and other companies know that we will not tolerate racism against anyone, let alone our innocent children.”
A Baltimore family filed another lawsuit against Sesame Place, seeking $25 million from the theme park.
