Is Mary Poppins Racist? Depends On Which Poppins You Mean
But in the books, the answer is probably yes. On January 28, Daniel Pollack-Pelzner penned an op-ed for the New York Times titled “‘Mary Poppins,’ and a Nanny’s Shameful Flirting With Blackface.” Note the use of the word flirting. Pollack-Pelzner isn’t saying that the character is racist. Nor is he saying Emily Blunt or Julie Andrews are racist.
