look who’s finally joined!
look who got pushed to the side
reason no. 12326543742624743 why i wasn’t super outraged about the Merida redesign
every single POC princess is shoved to the end of the line. Mulan is basically unrecognizable.
LMAO I was looking at this image, and I was like… did Snow White get stuck at the end because someone thought she was a poc?
I’m laughing to keep from crying.
True story…when I was a kid, I used to want to be Snow White. There were no princesses of color and she was the only one who even came close to looking like me because she had black hair. (Kind of sad, because my skin was never going to be white. But I wanted it to be.)
Any other PoCs have the same experience?
Very often, i still wish I was white.
FOr this sort of standing formation, why can’t they just go in some sort of order of appearance or even using historial time period as a sorting device…nope, has to be designed with racist implications…come on disney designers, you know better >(
Little girls obviosuly DO care about this sort of things just as much as any other aware person.
^Actually the line up for merchandize is organized mostly by popularity and sales. New princesses get a bump up the line on certain products (because this is product art) otherwise the standard still has Belle, Cindy, Aurora, and Snow as the front four. Normally with Tiana and Rapunzel following close behind. Mulan and Pocahontas (two of my favs) usually get the shaft entirely unless it is a line that involves all of the princesses.
So… not race. It’s money and popularity based on who sells and who’s in the product line. (yes, Snow doesn’t sell that well these days. Not compared to the main four of classic princesses: Belle, Aurora, Cindy and Ariel.)
