Recently, it has been announced that the very talented actress/singer, Halle Bailey, has been cast as Ariel in the Disney live-action The Little Mermaid. While several fans are against Disney's decision to change the look of Ariel, there are also several fans like myself who embrace this change. 

It is time for change. The world is so full of hatred and people only focus on the differences they can physically see on a person. Let's focus on the most important factor here. Disney decided to cast a young, beautiful, talented, and amazing actress that happens to be black. She is perfect for the role and will bring a new touch to the star character, Ariel. The same thing can be said for casting famous actor/artist, Will Smith for the role of the Genie in Disney's live-action Aladdin. The role was voiced by the late and great Robin Williams, but many would say Will Smith did an outstanding job of playing the Genie. Give Halle Bailey a chance to wow you before you display such negativity.

It is so sad to see how many people (+6700) are against this decision. Please stand with me to support Disney's decision to cast actress/singer, Halle Bailey as Ariel in the up and coming Disney live-action The Little Mermaid.
