I see no "message". Just like I saw none in "Polyanna" nor "Mary Poppins". Nor do I see "racism" in "Dumbo", nor white supremacy in "Pinocchio". (He was Florentine, they made him look Alsatian,). You over think things.
Only in "Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea" was there a message. A madman genius' dream of forcing peace on the world. The book reflects this, to sugar-coat would've ruined it. Possibly, "Follow me, Boys". A kid (Kurt Russel) was turned around by a Boy Scout leader; Russel's dad was an alcoholic, later died of it. Intense social thought for Walt Disney.
