I like this movie a lot. The music is good. It looks great.

But Barnum sold his "freaks" on their physical differences and racist ideas. He didn't think of them as family. He profited off of them and treated them horribly. I'm kind of fine, or at least understand, whitewashing a movie to make a real life person seem not so monstrous by the cultural standards of today. I'm not fine changing that person to a champion of equal rights.

That is the reality of the situation but we went to the movie to be entertained. They white washed the facts but we do know them. We know about Christopher Columbus but he still has a day🤷🏾‍♀️. So I mean I just enjoyed the family movie. And if I remember correctly he was embarrassed of them at some point. Not a lecture just a different point of view promise. History is tainted with so much blood I just wanna escape and sing a happy song.
