so i’ve seen this post go around before, but i absolutely fucking lost it today when i saw it on my dash. so here, just in case white people have forgotten how well represented they are in the Disney franchise i made you a picture of all the beautiful white Disney girls you have and have had to look up to all your lives. thats not even all of them. Hell your even getting a new one soon! (not to metion every fucking live action character)
half of the princesses of color are racist caricatures, and Atlantian isn’t a race or an ethnicity, and Tiana was a fucking frog for more than half of the fucking film.
P.S. don’t ever use the word g***y to describe the Romani People
P.P.S. Native American and Indian are two different things.
I know I’ve reblogged stuff like this before, but the image set is so popular it bears repitition.
So to repeat: you don’t actually have great representation if you have 5-10 WoC and 1000 white women. And representation isn’t about just being there, either, though that’s a big part of it in terms of what this post is purporting. It’s also about how you’re represented, and all movies with PoC in them have some troubling racial component, some more than others.
And it shouldn’t even have to be said again but yeah Ariel? Is white. Half fish, half white woman. Who turns completely into a white woman. You are literally comparing PoC to animals if the fish part is what matters here. Omg mixed race relationship still dying that even one person found that worthy to reblog
diversity is important. How someone could not understand the problem what african Americans have with Disney is crazy. We’ve always had this problem, we had to beg barbie for the black babies to show up, American girl dolls were probably the only ones who half wy got it right! I still don’t think I’ve seen an Latina, Asian, or indian dolls. It’s like the people who create these company’s only acknowledge races outside white after we complain and that’s crazy because most people don’t even belong to one race!
