A Black Little Mermaid Seriously?

Anyone that has been alive since Disney started making animated movies is well aware that The Little Mermaid is one of the most popular ones out there. Disney has been on a live action kick lately converting many older titles to this format. I.e. Aladdin, Jungle Book, Lion King, Milan etc. When it was announced that the Little Mermaid was going to get the same treatment most people were excited to see how it would look.

Fast forward to this past week and we are presented with

????

Ok am I missing something but I’m pretty sure Ariel as shown at top of post is a red headed while girl. The actress they have cast is a 19 year old black girl named Halle Bailey. What the hell?

Why is Disney retrofitting white characters to be black? Why can’t they just create an original story for a new black princess? Appropriating White roles for Black actors and actresses is beyond ignorant, Of course like the LGBT community not agreeing with this makes me a racist I’m sure.

  1. Shut the hell up.. why can’t she be black , you every think it’s trying to make things diverse so everyone can see no matter what color the same role and intentions will be played out the same way.so grown up and expand ur mind

  2. Here is the good thing about living in America. If you don’t agree with it you don’t have to go see it! I feel we have a lot more things to worry about then wth Disney is doing! It would be nice to stay in character but really where are u going to find a pale red head with a fishtail 🤔

  4. I agree! Let’s keep classics the way they should be. Are we going to make Roots into an all white movie next!? It’s ok when Black peoples get added into things, but let’s not add whites into black roles. It’s getting really annoying the whole race situation in this country on both sides! Ariel has red hair so let’s see if this actress will get red hair or if they will give her an Afro!

  5. It’s YOUR truth, you are entitled to be a racist if you choose to be. It’s a shame a cartoon character threatens and offends your moral compass.

  7. It’s so pathetic that people are getting hung up and losing their shit over the race of fictional character. Why care? Oh wait, its 2019…people like the bitch about everything now. Whites just can’t stand it when they arent the center of attention and this is coming from a white guy.

  10. So…you can’t see the difference between giving the job of playing a mythological creature not based in any historical reference to the best actress who auditioned for the role to making Rosa Parks into a white character? Yeah that makes sense…

  12. This was the dumbest article I’ve seen. One the mermaid is more than just a “white girl” she is a singer and Halle is that! If the director chose her, what’s the issue?? Secondly, what does LGBT have to do with anything? Why did you single them out? Nobody is making you look like a racists but yourself. Don’t watch it if it bothers you that much. Period. COLOR shouldn’t matter what so every, it’s about talent!

  13. Sorry you ignorant people. The Little Mermaid is an old Danish story, written by Hans Christian Andersen. It was first published in 1837. And yes, she is described as WHITE! Read your classics, and you will know why some of us do not like having the race of our characters changed. Some of us grew up reading the classics, not playing video games.

  14. Has anyone noticed how many commercials are now bombarded with A.A.’s? Now if they are only 13% of the population then why do they have to be in nearly 90% of all commercials? Many of the commercials trying to make it look like they are all living in nice two story homes like Father Knows Best and going on nice vacations. Not in Maryland and many of the states I have been in. That is not representative of the A.A. population.

  15. @8:37 am, yes I have noticed all of those commercials. I’ve also noticed how many commercials are showing interracial couples. There are a lot of interracial couples in this country, but not as many as these commercials represent. I feel like these wing nuts are forcing their blackness on us.
