Ariel, Children, and Comfortable: Would it still be racist if Tiana was cast with a Caucasian woman, and we became livid at that? What if Mulan was cast with a Caucasian woman? Still racist if I get mad about that? Or does racism only apply in this instance because its the white people who are angered? Hypothetical situation: a little black girl LOVES this version of Ariel. She looks up to her. She wants to be her. She wants to meet her. She begs and pleads on her hands and knees to be taken to Disney World to meet Ariel. Let's say, for arguments sake, that they can only afford 1 day pass to 1 park. This little girl is SO EXCITED because she's about to meet her idol. They get to the meet and greet and....Ariel is white? This is not the Ariel this little girl knows and loves. This is not the Ariel that helped this little girl become comfortable in her own skin. They can't have two Ariel's because it will confuse children. I'm literally not allowed to cosplay in Disney World as certain characters because l could be mistaken by children as the face character. So, either they'll be hypocrites and have two versions of Ariel in the parks, or they're going to confuse and crush the dreams of many little girls. Did you consider any of these options before deciding that people who are upset about the casting choice are racist? This image also lends implications to the type of person my own mother is. Which is really a grave mistake. Did you not think about the children??!?

Did you not think about the children??!?

Aww, Casper, and Children: A few months ago I witnessed my 5yr old little girl talking to herself. Or at least I thought she was. I continued to watch her, and quickly realised she must have an imaginary friend. Aww bless her The days go on and one tea time, I decided to up my parenting game, and offer to cook her imaginary friend a portion of spag bol too. Why not "Oh mummy don't be silly, she's dead! She can't eat food!" Holy shit on a cracker....She's fucking what now?! (Didn't actually say that part out loud) Thanks for offering though mum Fuck. Fuckety fuck fuck. Do we move house? Call a priest or just be done with it and burn the place down!. I'm equipped for a lot of childlike circumstances but the adoption of fucking Casper. Absolutley not. After I calm down, I ask my daughter some questions to try find out a little bit more about our new addition With confidence and zero fear, she proceeds to tell me her friend is the same age as her. She's a little black girl. She loves summer. She's allowed to play during the day but at night time she has to go home. My daughter dosnt know her name so call:s her Sally. (Ok... So at least I know we can sleep easy For weeks I watch my darling little psycho play with her dead friend. Sometimes my other children join in too. They can all see her which is even more terrifying. They chase each other, giggle and Love to play hide and seek. Then one day I noticed that her "friend" wasn't around as much. Probing... I ask her where she's gone "Oh she's not around today cos you have the blinds shut Hmmmm. Thinking of all the last few months events I have a sudden brainwave and open the blinds "Mummy mummy she's here she's here!" Omfg. I had spent weeks and weeks googling spirits. I watched hours of the ghost whisperer, looking up priests and dreaming about Ghost busters! For what?! Sally the fucking SHADOW!

Children, Destiny, and Energy: Ruby Bridges, the Little Black Girl Who Desegregated New Orleans Schools, Is Only 62. Let That Sink In. My mother went to the first non-segregated school in Fort Worth, Tx, and she's only 67... That's one generation from institutional-systematic slavery, which still exist ideologically, and mentally.. It's just spread to include non-wealthy caucasians (though they still benefit from the "privilege" of this mental illness), so it's more of an obvious agenda. Now, if integration was a actual form of unification, then the buses would have went both ways... White kids would have been bused to black communities with black teachers, and our culture based curriculum, as black children were bused to white schools for the purposes of societal indoctrination. But that's not how it happened. Our integration into white society decreased black owned business and land ownership dramatically, in exchange for higher wage jobs with white corporations, and the beginning of gentrification. Integration only benefitted the Caucasian society, because after 100's of years of free or cheap labor, their populace, on mass, wasn't skilled enough to keep the functionality of their economy sustainable without our creativity, energy, and currency. That's still relevant today with the countless stories of your boss taking credit, or benefiting from you improving whatever corporate methodology, by implementing your ideas. Before integration, buying black, thinking black, and being around your culture was first nature. Now, we can't source our own food, and we venerate wearing over priced items popularized by our culture, but not manufactured by it, while that company exploits us without reward or remorse. We've now taken on the mindset and desires of a culture who's only temperament has been war, conquering, destruction, and barbarism, as expressed with their "Manifest Destiny" pathological psyche... The people that stole your indigenous land here, took you from your indigenous land across the world, and murdered your ancestors (primarily with their diseased laden presence)-have transferred their thought process, wealth, and institutional oppression to their grand children, who are the Oligarchs of today... πŸ‘‡πŸΏ
