A response to one of the most obnoxious posts I’ve read on Tumblr.
The fact that someone felt the need to make this ppt tells me that we do need more POC representation in media. OP is citing ~historical accuracy~ for frozen being the way it is - specifically that bit about “whiteass European countries” - when SURPRISE non-white Europeans have co-existed with these so-called whiteass Europeans IN HISTORY.
The fact that they gave the late 1800’s as her example and proceeded to go “well not a lot of POCs travelled to Europe at this time makes me cringe. “But you guys don’t get it Africa and Asia were really far!” - ah yes, like distance stopped Europeans from rudely invading and establishing colonies in these areas in the 1800’s or even in the centuries before that.
Now I’m not trying to convince people to hate Frozen. It was a decent Disney movie and Let It Go is a pretty catchy song. But to invalidate POC who do dislike this movie by saying WELL IT’S DISNEY IT’S GOT SUCH A GOOD MESSAGE AND I LIKE IT SO STOP WHINING is a pretty shitty thing to do. Media representation has been and currently is still a big issue. Frozen may not be outright racist in itself (yes, the message of sisterly love is great we all got that), but the fact of the matter is that it’s contributing to the normalization of white as the standard which is kind of shitty for people who aren’t white.
So no, people aren’t ~hating just because it’s white~. People are upset because in the context of mainstream media, it’s another movie that helps perpetuate marginalization in film.
Maybe actually take a couple of history courses before you attempt to educate people on racism - or in this case “not racism”.
Do people actually care if Santa is a white man?
Just give me the damn presents.
And lets be real, Santa is clearly an alien.
How did these two even win the hunger games?
They won by their beauty and sex appeal.
