Got a pub quiz question wrong because of that. The question was about which controversial disney film was never released and we said song of the south but then we had all seen that so decided it couldn't have been. Never really forgave racism for that.Song of the South of course was released on home video in Europe.
Being born and raised in Alabama, I can vouch for this being the experience for an awful lot of folks IF they bother to go looking beyond what they learned in fourth grade Alabama history classes. I've also had the experience of seeing people arguing on Facebook, saying Alabama didn't succeed due to slavery while citing the Alabama Ordinance of Secession to back their case, having apparently never read it. The Lost Cause myth is deeply entrenched here, to put it mildly.A mate of mine from Georgia has written about being aghast, during arguments over the state flag, with all these people lying the Civil War was about slavery when he knew it was about states rights - so he went to look at the Articles of Secession and other primary sources so he could prove it online. And that's how he learned everything he'd been taught about the Lost Cause was wrong. (Whereas the lost causers he saw would always cite what the Confederates wrote after they'd lost and needed to cover their arses)
