And one of the black women was paired with a little black girl and when the little girl was asked when was it that she didn’t feel pretty and the little girl said “when I look at the color of my skin and my hair” and the model was like “why don’t you think those are beautiful?”
and the little girl said “because when I look at princesses they’re all pretty and they have different hair”
and then she started crying.
THIS IS WHY WE NEED REPRESENTATION OF ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE IN CHILDREN’S MEDIA.
THIS IS WHY WE NEEDED A BLACK PRINCESS WHO WASN’T AN ANIMAL MOST OF THE MOVIE, WHO DIDN’T WEAR HER HAIR IN A TIGHT BUN THE ENTIRE TIME.
THIS IS WHY PRINCESSES AND PRINCES OF DIFFERENT RACES AND SIZES CAN’T BE TOKENIZED, THEY NEED TO BE NORMALIZED.
