I really wasn't going to say anything but this is RIDICULOUS!!!!!!! As a little BLACK girl The Little Mermaid was my favorite Disney movie. I just loved it when I was little, why because Ariel was different, although she was white she had red hair, her shells didn't match her tail, she marched to her own beat. It never really occured to me as a child that she was white and that's a big deal apparently. Now, with Disney casting #Halle as the new little mermaid there's so much backlash from white people, why? Ya'll have had all Disney princesses minus Pocahontas, recently Disney has been pushing to make things more diverse and I'm here for it. Disney didn't even give little black girls a real black princess until Tiana in The Princess & The Frog which came out in 2009. Moana which came out in 2016, started the change and I'm here for it! I don't care what you all think, I'm here for this black little mermaid with all her #BlackGirlMagic
I think it's awesome there will be little girls looking at a movie and saying, "She looks like me" there's so much power in that statement!!!!! #BlackGirlsRock #BlackIsBeautiful #BlackDisney #ThankYouDisney #LittleMermaid
Let's not forget #Brandy was #Cinderella and married an #AsianMan who's Daddy was #White & Momma was #Black but I hear no complaints about that one 🤷🏾♀️🤔
*the cropping on the second pic is bad I know* Did a little sketch for my fav princess. All the hate towards Halle is saddening. I think Disney made a good choice and I can’t wait to see chloexhalle in action. Her voice is amazing and I can’t wait to hear her rendition of Part of your World. Ariel’s voice and red hair are the most important parts of Ariel to me, not her race. Ariel is about acceptance and her wanting to be accepted by her father for wanting to be a part of another world. The original Ariel is still going to be here, she’s not gonna just disappear. We are just getting a new adaptation to the cute, spunky mermaid. That’s it, thanks for reading my rant, bye!
