wherethe-magichappens:

disney makes a movie that is culturally diverse: everyone ignores it, movie becomes underrated, nobody ever brings it up

disney makes a movie with white people: wow another one how dare they nobody should be allowed to make movies with white people ever its racist lets boycott it

disney makes a movie in general: lets completely ignores the animation/themes/messages/morals of the story itself and focus on every negative aspect that we can possibly find

Disney makes a small handful of movies during multiple decades that actually have a PoC majority, half of which have racist or culturally ignorant elements in them, while most movies have super majority white cast: you go, “wow it’s so culturally diverse, Disney is such a savior, gonna make a post and pretend everyone ignores Pocahontas etc. and also blame marginalized groups for movies being unpopular as if they actually controlled that”

Disney makes multiple movies with 1 0 0 % white casts:you literally don’t understand the difference between having white people in a movie and pumping out all white casts in spite of the evidence of how problematic that can be* for people to view… like look at how you phrased that. Maybe you’re not ready to enter this convo if you’re not even listening to the full critique ?

Disney makes a movie in general: people of all sorts critique every movie ever, but when it comes to social critiques you can’t read beyond the negative, and you expect everyone to fawn over the animation as if nobody can complain about a fly in their burger without also complimenting McDonald’s fine fry cooking skills. Stop, they’re a multi-million corporation… we can tell it like it is, and they can handle it.

*to quote medieval PoC from this post:

The lack of representation of people of color in popular media leads to a lack of empathy for people of color that directly impacts our lives:

Silverstein reviews research that shows that the racial empathy gap has real world consequences:undertreatment of pain (even in children) and, yes, harsher sentences for African Americans convicted of crimes.

(that ends the med.poc quote)

You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we’re apart, I’ll always be with you.
