Oh, you gotta be kidding!

Apparently it's OK to discriminate against light-skinned black people? I think they should demand that they be represented!

So facial features are also an issue? White people aren't drawn accurately either. Who has that big of eyes? And they all look plastic (cartoonish CGI).

yeah, because the 1937 Snow White hasn’t changed a bit.

I take it you have no awareness of the wider issue if you would say that.

The issue is that the character already appeared before - in "The Princess and the Frog"

And they changed her appearance from that

And now they're changing it back to her original appearance

If she hasn't appeared before, it wouldn't be an issue

I would have viewed the Black Panther had a white guy played the character.

Most of these Disney flicks are just 'assembly-line' jobs anyway. Get your cheap toys with your Happy Meals during the season. Collect all 11.
