Mermaid: In folklore, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish. Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including the Near East, Europe, Asia, and Africa. 

Mermaid (Webster's)

noun
mer·​maid | \ ˈmər-ˌmād  \
Definition of mermaid: a fabled marine creature with the head and upper body of a woman and the tail of a fish

(Neither definition refers to race)

In a country where the citizens of Flint MI are drinking poison and there are people in cages along the U.S. border it is clear that we have serious problems! The petition created by Brit Harper is clearly racist. Okay maybe bigoted is a better word and we all know that a bigots favorite thing to say is "I'm not racist" If that is the case then you should never have to say it or type it because we learn by way of your character. Please read here the last portion of her hideous petition and please sign mine. We have enough going on that needs our attention. A racist petition against a child should not be on that list!                                                                           "There’s nothing wrong with being proud to be ANY race. Black, white, Asian, Latino, etc. Just like Mulan is Asian with black hair and brown eyes, and HOPEFULLY Pocahontas is Native American. Ariel is our red headed princess. Little red headed white girls shouldn’t have to feel ashamed or jipped." 

"If you want a black princess, let’s do Princess and The Frog. I’m sure Halle would be great in it. But Ariel is white, red headed, and blue eyed."

Now even if we did want to base this on physical appearance Ariel would NOT be a red head. The Little Mermaid was created by Hans Christian Andersen. A Danish gentleman. Danish people usually have pure blond or light hair, light eyes, a pale to fair skin. Many Danish who were pure blond-haired in childhood usually darken to a dark blond or light/medium brown shade. They are also usually tall or above average height. THEY ARE NOT REDHEADS but Disney did not follow that blueprint in 1989. Why should they change the rules of living outside of the box in 2019????

Please read Brits words again. "If you want a black princess, let’s do Princess and The Frog. I’m sure Halle would be great in it. But Ariel is white, red headed, and blue eyed."

So really what she's saying is something people of color have heard time and time again. "Stay in your place!" I cannot believe this is about a fictional character. 

Please consider signing my petition.
