BECAUSE TUMBLR never fails to entertain and inform at the same time it gets Disney fans hackles up in a mighty knot:
“TANGLED IS SET IN EUROPEAN/GERMAN FAIRYTALE TIMES THAT’S WHY THERE’S ONLY WHITE PEOPLE!1” - A Photoset by disneyforprincesses
“TANGLED IS SET IN EUROPEAN/GERMAN FAIRYTALE TIMES THAT’S WHY THERE’S ONLY WHITE PEOPLE!1” - A Photoset
did you make this? haha. I like it better than the princess one I did. SO MUCH TRUTH ANYWAY
That’s just fucking great. You have to turn everything into a fucking racism debate, don’t you? Disney can’t make one fucking movie because if there isn’t 18 bamillion black people, Asian people or Hispanic people, you got to flip your shit and say Disney’s racist.
The point of movies is not to see how many minorities we can represent. Its to make good entertainment. Creators at Disney are not focused on representing minorities unless its central to the story. Get over it!
Easy question: Why can’t we have entertaining movies with more than white people represented, if it’s so easy? Why can’t movies be entertaining AND have a racially-inclusive cast?
Answer: Because you’re an asshole <3
newsflash: if you can’t make a movie in 2010 set in a fantasy land that includes more than white people- who are already overrepresented in film, society, government, et cetera- then hey, actually, that is a real racial problem and you don’t get to dictate how people enjoy their own entertainment. Not everyone is white so not everyone is going to be able to shrug their shoulders and go, “An all white person children’s movie? Cool!”
“The point of movies is not to see how many minorities we can represent. Its to make good entertainment.” Well conversly, the point of movies is also not to exclude entire groups of people when inclusivity is easy as well as a good idea if you’re expecting to make money off these groups once they see your film.
“Creators at Disney are not focused on representing minorities unless its central to the story”
How nice of you to blatantly acknowledge your bias. “Your stories aren’t worth telling and your race isn’t worth representing unless it’s part of the plot. You’re not good enough to stand on your own as simply a person in a movie.” Maybe their focus- and yours- needs to be adjusted
all the awards!
