fuckin incredible the rip-off version of frozen has more diversity than the original disney movie
The disney movie was based on a Danish fairy tale. They changed some names and some details, but the scenario is still there. Those people are Nordic. Of course they would be white. Waiting for diversity on this story is like expecting to see black, white and hispanic people on an old japanese tale. There were no PoC on that region when the story happened, if they were added to the story just for the sake of diversity without a second thought, that would be really weird. You can’t ask for diversity on every single story, some of them just don’t allow multiracial characters because of the historic background.
HOLD THE DAMN FUCKIN’ PHONE.THERE HAS BEEN POC IN EUROPE SINCE THE THE DAMN 1400s. DO NOT TRY TO BULLSHIT HISTORICAL ACCURACY WHERE THERE A FUCKIN TALKING SNOWMAN AND ROCK TROLLS. And so what if it’s a danish fairy tale? Princess and the Frog is based off a European tale and it’s a American take on it. We can try to be creative people. No I can’t ask for multicultural people in every movie maybe, but I CAN ask or Disney to broaden their fuckin story scope to the world rather than fuckin’ Europe.
surprising i know
There are entire communities and social groups and experiences, stories, memories, etc in “white” countries without any white people too.
I long time ago I wrote a high school drama type of serial story about a social group that was mostly East Asian characters and one white character. I based it on my own HS experiences and people I knew. A lot of people liked it. But I showed it to a white friend of mine online, and she said she didn’t like it. I asked why, and she said it was “unrealistic” and racist. I asked why it was racist, and she said because most of the characters were Asian, there was only one white character and he was a side character, and she couldn’t associate with any of the mains because they weren’t white. My response was “turn on the television, welcome to my life.”
She said that was different though. That’s “realistic” and everybody can understand those characters. Even though my story wasn’t really any different except it was Asian people having teen drama, it was “unrealistic” because we all know social groups of Asian people don’t exist, and it’s racist because when you have mostly non-white people in a story, then it’s weird and strange, and white people are the “every person” who everybody can associate with, but non-white people are niche.
Yeah I’m not having the same argument everyone and their mom has had about this because fucking seriously, there are a million articles and posts on this website alone as to why everything you just sent to me is either incorrect or ignoring the fact that Disney likes to skip POC people altogether. Seriously, all I said is I haven’t seen nothing but white for three films and you’re begging historical accuracy in a film where there’s a talking snowman and a Princess gets to fall in love with a commoner raised by trolls.
Seriously, don’t cry to me about people not appreciating white cultures or something because nobody said that we hate white cultures or that’s not interesting enough or some shit. Cause seriously, I can’t win with you people. I say I like the film but it’d be nice to see somebody that ain’t white. Suddenly ya’ll think you’re my history teachers and Disney has to be historically accurate. Didn’t hear you people complaining when Jasmine was based off a white woman and showed her midriff, dressed up like a harem wife instead of a Princess. It’s cool though, you pick and choose your battles.
So here’s some links as to why white people aren’t the only people in Europe or Scandinavia, why the ratio of white to coloured princesses is so low, why this has nothing to do with people finding white cultures boring and more to do with the terribly incorrect representations of POC culture, not to mention how little Disney likes to concentrate on those cultures and why this wouldn’t even be an argument if Disney just had some alright representation. Not to mention how some of these fairytales are not from the white cultures you think they are.
So yeah, as you can see there are plenty of people willing to argue with you until you’re blue in face about this but I’m not one of those people. So go interject with them and have fun.
