Yes, of course. God forbid Black people should have anything good. God forbid.
Did you know they even allow us into Disney theme parks? Does that ruin the experience for you?
You know, I actually find your response quite offensive,
Really? Well I found your original comment quite offensive.
For the record, I don't have a problem with anyone of any race.
No, of course not. You just don't see why we should get a Disney princess that looks like us.
You know, I love Mulan and Pocahontas, if I was racist, I would have been up in arms about an Asian and Native American Princess.
You might have. You might not have. Racism isn't necessarily an across-the-board thing. Some people are biased against certain groups outside their own but give others a pass.
You know the new Doctor Who girl is a coloured girl (geeze, it's so hard picking out a word to describe black people these day because you have to walk on eggshells so as not to offend them!)
How about "Black people"? That's what we are. Or "Africans"? That's also what we are (although some of us deny the term, which is ridiculous). The term "colored" is antiquated, and most of us consider it offensive. The term "people of color" or "person of color" (POC) is acceptable, however. I realize you're ignorant about us (or unaware, if you'd prefer), but you don't have to "walk on eggshells," just learn about us and treat us with the same respect you treat your family.
I just felt that this was a story based on a classic fairytale, where the lead was not coloured, and it was not set in a New Orleans location. It feels as though it's an attempt at political correctness. Gee, we've never had a Black Princess before. The Princesses are such role models for young girls, we have to have a Black Princess. To be honest, I would be more offended by that than the fact that they are actually doing it.
OK, let me see if I have it right - you thought the story was based on a European fairy tale (which is unconfirmed), but because it's being made with an African American lead female character, it's an attempt at political correctness, yet you claim that we need to have a Black princess, yet you're offended that that's what's actually happening. Right? So, you don't like the idea of a Black princess, yet you admit that a Black princess is necessary, yet you don't like the fact that they're making a movie with a Black princess. OK, got it.
But if you had bothered to read my post properly
Excuse me? "Properly"? Tell me, your highness, just what is the "proper" way to read your royal posts? Whilst having a spot of tea?
Ever stop to consider that maybe you just wrote it wrong? (I doubt it.)
and considered my words instead of reacting against them, you'd have seen that I said I'd reserve judgement until it came out.
If you'd have considered your own words more carefully before posting, you wouldn't be in the position you are now.
You know, it's crass reactions like that which are preventing Song of the South being released onto DVD!!!
And little miss Londontown's true colors come out after all.....
