Be not afraid.
Women of color and the Disney characters they have played.
Disney is obviously racist…….
There are only ever white characters in disney…..
No, shut the fuck up.
Don’t you dare take my post that is meant to highlight and celebrate the very few women of color who have worked for Disney as some backwards reasoning for your stupid racist views.
Don’t do it. Go away. Don’t talk about Disney again.
So Disney used Pocahontas to try to make up for Peter Pan which is so embarrassingly racist towards natives it’s just not even funny. But they really did Pocahontas a disservice and truly messed up her story to appeal to a white audience—so much so that her tribe dedicates this page to dispelling the myth surrounding Pocahontas, even saying that their attempts to reach out to Disney to help with a more accurate portrayal of her was denied. So next time you wanna harp on about historical accuracy to defend exclusion of pocs in Disney films please just think about Pocahontas.
#man this is so important#because there’s always going to be a few people that white people can hold up saying#’hey this was a great representation!’#BUT IT WASN’T#THIS MOVIE IS RACIST AS FUCK
You cannot say that you like Pocahontas. The genocide of my people is turned into a cartoon musical with a singing raccoon? I mean, think about it, dawg, the real story of Pocahontas is about a bunch of white boys who come to my land, bribe the corrupt indian chief, kill off all the warriors and fuck the indian princess silly.
