Anonymous asked: Don't ever comment on Disney or it's princesses ever again. Seriously. You are utterly idiotic. Fucking dumbass.
If you are really this bothered by my comments about how Disney could do more stories about people of color and that I named a few areas of the world that have fairy tales that Disney could use for said stories, then you are racist. Disney is not free from criticism. Disney is not given a special pass for being Disney. I do not care how much you love Disney and the Disney Princesses, it is still extremely problematic that they have created more stories about white people than the combination of all the stories on people of color that they have.
Think about that. The post that you’re so angry about? 7 examples of white characters, 4 examples of character of color in which each character is from a different part of the world. So, not 4 examples of Chinese princesses and 4 examples of Native American princesses and 4 examples of Black princesses and 4 examples of Middle Eastern princesses (what portion of the world exactly was Jasmin suppose to be from?), but 4 princesses of color total against 7 white princesses.
4:7 is not a good ratio. And the reality is that the ratio is actually 1:7, 1:7, 1:7, and 1:7.
1 Chinese princess: 7 white princesses
1 Native American princess: 7 white princesses
1 Black princess: 7 white princesses
1 Middle Eastern princess: 7 white princesses
We have more than enough diversity in countries and eras to represent white people. It’s time that we have the same amount of diversity for all different groups of people that are not white. This is not something to snub your nose at, this is something to encourage and possibly enjoy. We have a chance to learn about other cultures (if Disney can make a damn movie about a person of color that isn’t super racist). Have have a chance to grow as people. Having more princesses of color does not somehow make your favorite princesses less cool/awesome/important. It just makes room for princesses that are cool/awesome/important that happen to not be white.
(and just to note it will soon be 1:9, after Frozen character inclusion)
