Damn Disney!

Just when Disney got us all excited about the first ever Black princess, they remind us how shit really is and show us the prince. Silly of us to just assume that Princess Tiana would find love with a Black prince. They think cuz Prince Naveen is voiced by a Brazilian actor and has a tan, that they've done their part. This is so sad. Why can't Prince Naveen look like Princess Tiana? Why is Disney scared to be responsible for the positive representation of Black love? So unfortunate. As per usual...take two steps forward to take five steps back.

Prince Naveen has a Middle eastern/Down South Asian name. I can't believe Disney went with that. And in this pic he might be black. Kinda looks like Mario Van Peebles with that hair-in-the-box situation.
