Disney, to stir up hype for it’s upcoming movie The Little Mermaid cast an African American actress in the role of Ariel, naturally all of the pot stirrers jumped on the race wagon to say that the reason people are unhappy about it is because of the actresses African American roots! Look around folks, they tried this with Little Orphan Annie and even the African Americans were insulted. The fictional character Ariel was not colored and people want things to be true to form, while it is about her skin color, it isn’t racist it’s about wanting the characters this country has come to know and love to be true to life. It’s become so disgusting that there are people out there that have to point to racism at every turn, making the already sensitive issue even more explosive. As it stands the Democrats want to pay ancestors of slaves money for what our forefathers did! Here’s a thought, why don’t we give money to the incredibly important project that scientist Sergey Zimov has been working on to save the planet, now that is money well spent! Our forefathers are responsible for killing off the Wolly Mammoths to extinction so why not invest in the planet, the planet that should matter to all of us regardless of skin color?
It is a sin that the same people are always the ones to jump up and cry racism, ever looking to stir that damned racial pot. People want realism regardless if it’s a fictional character or the special effects in a movie that’s all, period. Disney is responsible for the decision to cast this actress as Ariel and Disney may well pay the price when the movie is finished and shown in Theaters, it may very well flop and cost them a whole lot of money. If you want to blame someone then blame Disney after all, they are the ones that intentionally made this decision to build the hype for the movie. We all know how greedy the Disney franchise has become, hell the majority of children will never be able to afford going to any of the Disney theme parks, it’s just too expensive. The next best thing is the movies they make to bring their characters to life and they don’t seem to be able to get that right either. Kids aren’t stupid any more than young kids are racist, they will see a character they love and will be let down when the character doesn’t fit what they know the character to look like, any more than a Caucasian character being put in place of an African American one! Shame on Disney because it’s the children that enjoy their movies most and they will take note immediately of major changes in the Disney characters! While everyone bitches and moans about the tricks Disney plays it will be the children that are affected most, but Disney powers that be aren’t concerned with the children, it’s all about creating press for the movies so that they can drum up all of the cash possible from it!
