Why would someone who lives underwater have dark skin? The point of dark skin is to protect skin from harsh sunlight— which doesn’t exist deep underwater where mermaids would live. It just doesn’t make sense.


Then again, mermaids aren’t real, so nothing makes sense. So do whatever you want.

Imagine the rants of ‘cultural appropriation’ if they made a movie about Oshun and she’s a blue eyed whitey.

MC2 exactly! There are so many fascinating incredible stories about African princesses that could be adapted into movies, no reason there should only be Tiana. Contrary to popular belief Africa has its own unique rich storytelling history completely seperate from European tales. There are hundreds of legends and fables that could be adapted into a Disney princess movie that would be a celebration of African culture and storytelling tradition. But instead of making those Disney chose to be cheap and treat black children like 2nd class citizens like in the days of civil right and seperate but equal instead of getting their own new thing they get the Leftovers. Instead of having special stories created for them they are just given recycled European stories

Nope. It’s just classic fanbaiting.

She also runs her own business and I just feel this look is terrible. Doesn't happen all the the time but enough to vent. Help pls
