    Just wondering if Ms Morrison is responsible for production of "Black is King", which by title alone seems extremely polarizing in view of the current climate we find ourselves in. It is no secret that Beyonce has been a race polarizer before in her salute to Black Panthers in her halftime appearance at the Super Bowl which was roundly criticized. Who's next on Disney+ Jay Z ? "Black is King"??? seriously? I am cancelling my subscription to Disney+ if they are turning political in what should be clean family entertainment without agenda's
