Halle Bailey is an African-American actress who was chosen to portray Ariel in Disney's Live-Action remake of 'The Little Mermaid'. People are upset about this choice and have made petitions to get a white actress to portray Ariel instead. 

They clearly do not know that The Little Mermaid is a fairy-tale that has been changed many times. The original 1830's Little Mermaid was changed by Disney to fit with a younger audience. We only know the Disney version and seem to forget about the original. 

What's wrong with a little change. Skin color is not important when it comes to acting out a character. Skin color is important, however, for the little black girl who loves the animated movie who just wants to see more than Tiana as a representation of herself. The important thing here is that the children are entertained and that they enjoy this movie! Stop ruining it by being racist about the actors. Instead, embrace diversity, celebrate black culture, and raise awareness about how poorly African-Americans are treated in today's society. 

Keep Halle Bailey as Ariel! We want a quality Ariel!
