African Americans Are Finally Getting a Little Disney Love
God bless Disney, huh? They've finally decided to introduce their first major black character -- a Princess -- and they turn her into a frog and surround her with black magic, a witch doctor, and several other cartoon racial stereotypes. It's a period piece, though, set in New Orleans, so it's OK, right? Like Gone with the Wind. It's totally OK to be racist if you're movie is set during a racist period! (Nevermind that it's directed by a couple of old white men).
Fucking Disney. Maybe I'm being overly sensitive, but damnit: The trailer makes me uncomfortable. Especially the toothless lightning bug.
