A second African-American family is accusing a character at Disneyland of ignoring their child because of the color of their skin.
10 News reports the White family of San Diego says they complained to the park after a person dressed as Donald Duck refused to take a photo with their son, instead interacting with white children.
Nastasia White says the character made a deliberate move away from her 5-year-old son Razzi, as he ran towards Donald yelling his name, to play with a baby in a stroller.
White says the baby's parents encouraged Donald to take a photo with Razzi, but the character instead went and hugged a white child. She says there is no way she misread the situation.
"I didn't (misread) because it was done in a blatant and ugly way," White told 10 News.
The Whites hired the same attorney as a family who is suing Disneyland over alleged racism to represent them in a possible lawsuit.
"I've gotten many emails and voicemails that I'm looking into," attorney Dan Gilleon told 10 News. "What this tells me is this isn't an isolated incident. It doesn't mean Disneyland is racist, but they have some people in the company who aren't playing by the rules and are being discriminatory."
