Disney Today
Gay Days
The Princess and the Frog

Tiana, the main character's love interest could pass for a white man with olive skin and a Brazilian accent.

While she is the first African American princess, she spends most of the film as a frog.

The villian uses voodoo which is stereotypical for African Americans to use in films.

Note the stereotypes
What are they?
What are the stereotypes?
Disney has improved as it
has discovered new markets.
After 9/11 many families did not
travel. Disney looked at the market
and embraced the LGBT community...
a market that had been showing up
"uninvited" for years. They embraced the
Community with "gay days" at their parks and increased business.
However, it took 75 years
to create their first black princess.
We'll hear more about Disney in the
video "Mickey Mouse Monopoly"!
Disney may make this unavailable. If so do a search for Cannibal Capers on YouTube.
Imagine as a child (or adult) in the 1930s or 40's that you had never been to Arabia or Africa and this was your primary image of the people living there. What would be your reaction or view of these people?
Now think of today. If you have not been to Arabia or Africa, what are YOUR sources of information. How accurate are they? If you don't have PERSONAL experience, you most likely rely on media images. Are they more accurate today than the Disney portrayals? Perhaps more sophisticated but how do you know?
