Someone Is Mad With Disney Princesses Being Too White, Gets Shut Down With Facts

Life influences art and Walt Disney’s racism was no exception – just look up the since-banned Disney film “Song of The South.” But despite their creator, the company has steadily tried to become more progressive, especially with their newer more diverse and feminist Disney Princesses – but not everyone is satisfied.

Recently someone created a graphic that showed each season represented by a Disney princess

One commenter didn’t hesitate to call out the image creator blaming Disney

This person defended Disney against any claim of whitewashing, with this (slightly wrong) geography argument

P.S. Yes. Brave is set in Scotland, not Ireland, but that doesn’t make a huge difference as we know most scots are as white as a sheet of paper.

And the comments on their argument was just as divided

Funny how some people see things only in terms of race, then accuse Other People of being racists.

The problem of people like this is that they separate people only based on skin colour. Culture matters even more, just because a character is the same colour as you it doesn't mean you will feel represented by them if they are from a completely different culture - sincerely, an Eastern European who barely gets positive representation in western media.

Thank you. This is the same with Africans and people who are from north America. I am from Nigeria and my ancestors were not slaves. I have never received any racial prejudice in my life but I console anyone who has. I can't really relate more to the stereotypical black person in America other than our skin being the same.
