If you care that areal is black you are exactly the same as someone who cares that she is black.

I don't think anyone cares that she's black.

People care that they changed the character.

Lore, canon, mythology, and legend seem to be more important to us than we realize. If Star Wars turned Luke Skywalker into a frog for future episodes, people would react the same. These stories are almost ingrained into us. You neurologically upset the apple cart by messing with that.

Also, it's all a marketing ploy by Disney. They don't care about representation. They care about money, and the quickest way to market your product is to make people angry and share your movie trailer, making it go viral.

If the mermaid was white, I would have never known this was a movie.

I didn't hear you complaining that she didn't eat Prince Eric in the first one. Mermaids are typically carnivorous.

Heh, gotcha.

Are they? I didn't know that.

The average person is ignorant of the original Danish(?) story.

I'm sure the ancient Danes would be angry that Americans added singing crabs to their fable as well.

Damn crabbists...

Man I feel bad for that girl, she seems genuinely upset and aware that some kind of fuckery is going on.

Poor kid having to deal with the neurosis of bougie adult libs and their social crusades. She just wants to see the fucking little mermaid you pompous clowns.

Lol I highly doubt itís true. Itís just been a stereotype that black people cant swim, I guess it could be seen as a negative stereotype but honestly one Iíve seen pushed mostly by black people back in the day

And when I say back in the day, I have met a lot of black people in behavioral health. My coworker I worked with yesterday is a black dude who plays semi-pro football and swims laps at his gym multiple times a week, probably better than I since I such at swimming

Tbh I havenít met a black person in the last 2 decades who told me they couldnít swim
