Activist slams Disney's 'The Little Mermaid' for glossing over slavery

This editor hasn’t seen the live-action “The Little Mermaid,” but the animated version was the first movie he took his daughter to see in a theater. As you know, Ariel has been racially swapped with a black actress. If that was supposed to cause controversy, it failed. However, one British activist is slamming the movie for glossing over slavery — how could they not address slavery in the movie?


Comic Book Resources reports:

According to Deadline, Marcus Ryder, former chair of the Royal Television Society Diversity Committee charity, has called out the new movie for glossing over slavery. The story seemingly takes place in the Caribbean during the 18th century, when chattel slavery was a common practice, but The Little Mermaid only presents racial harmony. “Setting the fantastical story in this time and place is literally the equivalent of setting a love story between Jew and Gentile in 1940 Germany and ignoring the Jewish holocaust,” Marcus argued in a blog post.

“We owe it to our children to give them the most amazing fantastical stories possible to help their imaginations grow,” he continued. “We do not do this by ‘whitewashing’ out the difficult parts of our history. We do it by embracing our rich history and empowering them with the truth.”

It’s “literally the equivalent” of ignoring the Holocaust.


Always. Disney is just not woke enough.


How could Disney just overlook the Caribbean slave trade in a children’s movie about a mermaid?
