Viewing the Disney girls through a feminist lens:
…. and if you rank all the princesses up in chronological order, you’ll see “Caucasian”, Caucasian, Caucasian, Caucasian, Caucasian, talking fox, mermaid, Caucasian, Persian/Arabian, talking lion, Native American, Gypsy, Chinese, African American.
Fantasy creatures and animals were represented before princesses of colour. And even then, only one token princess per ethnicity please. Anyway, you can’t say Disney isn’t trying. They’re just not trying very hard.
well, change is the norm :))
