Racism Investigation

Monday, November 9th, 2009

It's a Small WorldLast week Disneyland Paris was visited by a bailiff who investigated the official documents of the Euro Disney Company for racial or ethnic profiling used to hire their cast members This action came after a court decision from last month when a complaint was filed by the anti racism group SOS Racisme. SOS Racisme said that work applicants where asked to fill out a form with information of what region of France they are coming from, information that would help Disney determine if they are black or mulatto.

Disney states that the bailiff has had access to all of their documents and that no such questions are to be found on their application forms.
