A Black Princess

Some critics admire Disney’s new entrepreneurial black princess and her interracial relationship with the frog prince.

Should we admire the political correctness of the princess or is it a surface-level move to appease narrow-minded critics? “Friday, Disney’s first black princess makes her debut. Disney isn’t exactly known for its forward-thinking fairytales, and for months, some have expressed concerns about how Disney would portray its first black princess, from what texture her hair should be to what prince charming should look like. But so far, most columnists say they are pleasantly surprised: The Princess and the Frog got it right–mostly. Not everyone is satisfied.”
