Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: The fact that Disney's [[Disney/{{Zootopia}} film with the strongest anti-racist message]] stars a rabbit and a fox just like this one, which is often considered one of their most racist film.

* ShoutOut: It's entirely possible that [[{{Disney/Zootopia}} Nick Wilde (fox) and Judy Hopps (rabbit)]] were a deliberate nod to this film, especially given the film's notoriety over racial content. The only film that ''could'' have gotten away with a shout out would be one that ran with the themes that ''{{Disney/Zootopia}}'' explored. However, in ''Song of the South'' the fox is much more quick tempered and underestimatesthe rabbit's intelligence.

* FairForItsDay: And arguably not only fair, but brave. This applied to the cast as well. Walt Disney absolutely ''loved'' how well James Baskett played the part of Uncle Remus. Originally, the actor was only going to voice an animated animal until Disney gave him the lead. To top it off, Disney put a lot of effort into seeing that Baskett got an honorary [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscar]] for his performance, making him the first African American man to get any sort of Oscar[[note]] His co-star Hattie [=McDaniel=] (Aunt Tempe) was, of course, the first African American ''woman'' to win an UsefulNotes/AcademyAward, for Best Supporting Actress for the part of "Mammy" in 1939's ''GoneWithTheWind''[[/note]].

However, when the film premiered in Atlanta, he still wasn't allowed to attend, on account of racial segregation.

* BrokenBase: Opinions are split whether it is genuinely offensive or if its not, and critics of it are suffering from PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad. The film has a cult following, but the cult following is bitterly divided between African Americans who [[IReadItForTheArticles remember it for the folktales]] and one of the first prominent casting of a black man on film, thirtysomething hipsters who want to watch it [[WatchItForTheMeme due to its mix of notoriety and nostalgia]], and older White Southerners who fondly recall its "Uncle Tom"-like aspects and RoseTintedNarrative of happy black people living in the Old South. This obviously has not given Disney much incentive to re-market the film...

* FunnyMoments: When Br'er Fox has thrown Br'er Rabbit into the briar patch, thinking that would kill him, he takes off his hat in mock respect. Then he doesn't notice that Br'er Bear hasn't taken off his hat and nudges him sharply.

* PoliticalCorrectnessGoneMad: Many people argue that the negative reaction towards the movie is ultimately this, noting that the African-American characters are actually ''sharecroppers'' (not slaves), one of them is the hero of the movie, they're portrayed as interacting civilly with the white characters, and that there are many more potentially offensive movies that haven't been condemned nearly as loudly as this one.
