Ignorance, Cultural Erasure 

Disney is trying to be woke, but in doing so, they're ignoring major issues.

1. Sephardic Jews are not "Latinx"
2. Sephardic Jews don't speak Yiddish or have Ashkenazi customs, "Bubbie", "Gelt", etc. Why not show actual Sephardic customs?
3. The whole "Hanukkah episode" thing also bugs me The only time gentiles seem to portray us (Jews) is on this most minor holiday, rather than on the holidays or customs that matter to *us*.
