After the unveiling of images of Disney’s latest lead, Elsa the Snow Queen in the upcoming Frozen, fans decided to make her over. Elsa, per Disney’s usual whitewashing (other lead character Anna is also very white), falls in line with their usual fair skinnned, light hair, blue eyes and a glamorous but impractical gown.

I know this article is old but since the release of the movie I still see this sort of talk everywhere in the fandom.

- “Anna is also very white”
They’re sisters. Of course they are both white. They didn’t have mixed-race couples in that time, and even if there were a few, society certainly wouldn’t allow a mixed-race couple as royalty.

- "Typical fair skinned"
Tiana, Jasmine, Esmerelda and Pocahontas are all Disney princesses with dark skin.

- "Light hair"
Snow White, Mulan, Belle, Tiana, Jasmine, Pocahontas, Megara and Esmerelda all do not have light hair. Light hair is not “typical” in the princesses as stated by this article (which expresses views that, like I said, I see a lot of).

- “Blue eyes”
All of the princesses I’ve already mentioned don’t have blue eyes, with the addition of Rapunzel.

Why are people complaining about a white princess? There is already a lot of racial diversity in the other princesses, plus, it’s set in Scandinavia. No one complained about the lack of white people in Aladdin, because it was set in the Middle East. No one complained about the lack of white people in Mulan, because it’s set in China. So people should not be complaining about the lack of dark-skinned people in Frozen, because it’s set in Norway. Fair skin, light hair and blue eyes are the most common genetic traits of Scandinavian people.

The creators of Frozen are not “White-washing”; the people complaining about Frozen are white-shaming, which is an equally valid form of racism as all the others.

how is it possible to make a fairytale universe where you can have magical ice powers but somehow black people are too unrealistic? Also there’s clearly darker skinned people in background shots so I don’t really understand what you’re trying to say here.

who else was payed by mcdonalds to be at coachella?
