After Disney unveiled images of its latest lead Elsa the Snow Queen in the upcoming Frozen fans decided hey had had enough of the typical Disney princess so they made her over Elsa per Disney's usual whitewashing Cother lead character Anna is also very white falls in line with their typical fair skinnned light hair blue eyes always wearing a glamorous but impractical gown ELSA ELSA FROZEİ FROZEN COMING SOON TO CINEMAS IN 3D COMING SOON TO CINEMAS IN 3D bigwordsandsharpedges w1n5t0n-m1k3y mayberachel bad-ass-strigoi-hunter jingle-fox animalbks awesomegirlystuff What the fuck? Whitewashing? It’s a danish fairy tale! You can’t just throw in diversity for the sake of it It has to make sense thats like if people were like “Why are there only Chinese people in Mulan?” Because it takes place in fucking China before anyone immigrated there! THANK YOU THANK typical light hair fair skinned blue eyes The only other Disney princesses that fits that description all the way would be Cinderella and Aurora The only other one close is Rapunzel Disney does extremely well with making the animated princesses fit the time period and area they are from Let me show you a thing Alright this is Snow White The whole reason this is her name is because her skin was as white as the fucking snow She had hair as black as a raven And lips as red as a rose Snow White was originally a GERMAN fairytale Ya know what color they are in Germany? White… Now this bitch right here is Cinderella This movie was made in 1950 Ya know what was going on in 1950? Segregation So I doubt that in 1950 they would make some black fairytale princess considering Walt Disney was white and all the employees at Disney were white and I’m sorry but in the 1950’s all the white people were racists Yes Walt Disney was fucking racist But that’s because of when he grew up and how things were He was actually a pretty loving and kind man and I’m sure that he would’ve had an open mind to ending segregation if he had grew up different FYI Cinderella is French French people be whiteThis chick right here Her name is Aurora Her movie was made in 1969 There were still racist little bastards then But ya know what she’s also freaking French And in her original fairytale her hair was the color of sunshine gold and lips that shamed the red red roseNow meet Ariel She is often times many people’s favorite cause she’s fun and quirky and her hair looks like a fucking fire truck Her fairytale is Danish Danish people are white The Danish fairytale though? It’s actually based off of stories sailors told of seeing this girl with bright red hair and the tail of a fish Idk but have you ever seen a naturally red headed black woman Cause I haven’t… Now Belle here is the frenchiest of the French Her story is actually based in France Not just a nice fairytale that was made in France Again French people are white But you see light hair on her No She is brunette! And she has brown eyes Nuff said Now this… this is Jasmine She is not white she does not have light hair and she does not have light eyes She is brown And beautifully so And she’s not so sweet and fragile either She is independent and don’t need no manShe is Arabic and she looks like it I don’t see any white washing here See this is where white washing would ACTUALLY come into play If they made Princess Jasmine based off of Princess Badroulbadour from an Arabic folk tale and made her white A white girl in Agrabah Nope My personal favorite Pocahontas Again No white washing She is nice and brown and has nice Indian features Thing about her? She was a real lady In fact her sequel actually told her story better than the first one Meet mulan She’s Chinese She saved China Nuff said This lovely lady is Tiana She made a lot of ground as being the first black Disney Princess She was from New Orleans She’s american This movie was based in the 1920’s and they did her right because she was a waitress working 3 jobs just to make a few dollars a day She lived in the slumsthe ghetto with all the other colored folk They kept it right to the time period they were representing but they also made her fa-boo! Now this chicky is my girl punzy She is the first Disney Princess since 1991 that was white I think 20 years time is a good amount of time to bring in another white Princess Disney had wanted to do Rapunzel for a long time She’s one of the classic fairytale princesses Everyone know who this chick was but there was no Disney movie about her The reason why they didn’t she make her movie in the 90’s was because she was white She was just another golden haired fair skinned damsel in distress I am soooo happy they waited on this one too Cause after being in the works for so long they took this story about a chick with long hair being rescued by a Prince and they made her this barefoot rebellious bad-ass sweetheart that was magical and already a Princess In fact her “prince” wasn’t a prince He was a thief And the coolest thing so that she wasn’t just a typical blonde princess they cut off her hair and it turned brown So now she’s this edgy but sweet brunette short-haired girl Also the original fairytale is German so Disney stayed true to it’s roots and kept her in a German setting This is Princess Merida She is Scottish Technically white But still not just some American accent blonde white girl She made a big leap in the Princess world because unlike all the others who are all strong too she didn’t even find love in the movie Who knows maybe they’ll make a sequel a few years later where she’s older and more grown up and she gets married Fun fact Brave is loosely based around Scottish folklore of King FergusSo yeah white washing would be if they made the beautiful ethnic ladies here just white Alot of fairytales come from mainly white countries Disney is just trying to tell a good story Maybe they should look more into some Arabic fairytales maybe some African ones But all they’re doing is staying true to stories and lands I love you Reblogging again for the comments Why does everyone forget Atlantis The Lost Empire? It had a team of mixed-race characters fighting to save the last remnants of the lost city of Atlantis which is inhabited by technologically advanced people of color Not to mention the part where multiple ethnic groups overcome xenophobia to prevent World War One from including infinite pure energy and magical weapons of mass destruction Meme
