Black Little Mermaid CASHES Out On WOKE Culture!



Halle Bailey, a black actress, has been cast as the latest incarnation of “The Little Mermaid” in an upcoming live-action Disney film. This has caused quite a bit of controversy due to the inaccurate race depiction.

In my opinion, the casting of a black woman as Ariel in The Little Mermaid is not an issue, but the motivation Disney has behind it is an issue. They are capitalizing off of racial tension in the United States and also a “woke” culture of elevating non-white races above other to aid in their marketing for the movie.

It’s a formula that seems simple enough.

Cause controversy by casting a polarizing person in a particular role, social media and traditional media pick up the story. Attention is at a fever-pitch right around the time of release which eliminates a large chunk of the marketing budget. At the end of it all, profits are increased due to lower expenditures on marketing. But at what cost?

  1. "The Little Mermaid" (Danish: Den lille havfrue) is a literary fairy tale written by the Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. The story follows the journey of a young mermaid who is willing to give up her life in the sea as a mermaid to gain a human soul. So it's a European story.. that features a European as the main character.. but let's make her black.

  2. This whole Hallie Berry kerfuffle IS what it is – haha! I ALWAYS love watching Hallie, and don't see any reason why there couldn't be a black mermaid. Hey, Anthony, I finally got my "But I digress" T-shirt! A pure happiness thing. Thank you &; > (You oughta put out a WHOLE LINE of your special phrases T-shirts, such as my first line in this paragraph. That advice is free – unless you decide to share a percentage with this poor EFL teacher serving in low-paying countries (big smile).

  3. It's alright to have a character if it's a different character behind the mask. Anyone can be behind the mask of a super hero even a villain as long as it's a different person behind the mask. James bond isn't even his real name if you research the original novels james bond was just a code name given to him along with 007 but it still would look crazy for another race of male to be James Bond but what they could do is add another character who's very simmer to james bond but give him a different code name ending with 007.

  4. All I am saying is people of color should have our own stories with people that look like us. No legitimate criticism against the “Princess and the frog” or against “Lelo and stitch” because it was an original and a story about girls of color. Little mermaid is of a redhead white girl let’s keep it that way.

  5. It hilarious to me how many grown adults especially grown men are apparently bothered by this. The movie is not geared toward you gentlemen, it’s mad for young kids especially young girls. No child (at least none I have seen) are bothered by this at all. You want kids to be able to dress up as their favorite characters right? So what’s the problem then? There is a clear double standard here.
