Let’s not pretend that we all haven’t seen the biggest debate that’s going on right now when it comes to this live action movie. There’s currently a petition right now to make sure Halle doesn’t get the part to be the mermaid. So decided to make a petition to keep her as the mermaid!

She is a talented woman, singer and actress. Disney picked her for a reason! Her voice sounds exactly like her. So what if she has dreads, they’ll make them red or give her a nice lace front. There is no reason why she shouldn’t get the part as Ariel. 

Growing up as a young black girl, I’ve always wanted to be a princess. But all I could see where white women as the princess and never a black woman, until princess and the frog came out. But is that still enough for little black girls today to think that they can grow up and be a princess or even see a black woman as a leading role in a major movie? This is why she needs to remain as Ariel. 

I know a lot of people are upset about this, but this is bigger than them wanting to keep her white. Let someone else have a chance and dream big.
