I think that everyone is equal until you touch my wittle wog flwuume!! get over yourself. (Also learn where Tokyo is)I imagine the Black Lives Matter movement has something to do with this. I am by no means racist and don't support any kind of discrimination whatsoever, but this movement is getting beyond a joke, as ALL lives matter, no matter your culture.
I wouldn't have minded if just one of the Splash Mountains (preferably the California version as it would suit the park better) was converted, rather than both. Or even if they converted the Chinese version, and keep the Magic Kingdom one as is, which is what I think they should do. Don't feel like going all the was to China tor ride the original once more.
I think its something you just gotta get over... sure it is a classic, but it needed a fair share of TLC. This new theme will hopefully give the ride that TLC it needs while also bringing in a great new story line for a great movie! The potential they have for this is insane, but people will always pay it dust just because they can't let go of their childhood.
