look who’s finally joined!
look who got pushed to the side
would like to point out that this image has the intentions of showcasing the newest additions to the princess line up, so all the older princesses of course aren’t the center of attention.
of course, the placement of certain princesses could be better, but also consider this was probably purely unintentional. or in better words, not a conscious thing.
oh believe me, it is completely possible for racism to be subconscious.
I think it’s fairly obvious that the racial problems would be ammeliorated if they HAD arranged by sequence. That means Mulan would be in front of Snow White- Rapunzel and Jasmine would be in front of Sleeping Beauty AND Ariel- and Tiana would make her way to the front, past Cinderella and Belle.
I mean honestly it’s sort of laughable to look at this and decide that it’s arranged to display newer in the front, and older in the back. It’s actually only relevant to the frontmost two characters and no one else. So might want to come up with a better reason to justify racialized placement if you are really dead set against calling it out, since it’s harmful whether or not it’s “intentional.”
Especially since that’s really a consciousness in and of itself. People who care about this stuff consult others and listen to what they say. Very easily, anyone with an iota of understanding of what usual critiques against the princesses are, would have noticed that.
unintentional my ass. Shouldn’t all of the new ones be front and center, and old guard back right and back left? Don’t look that way..I see mighty white all front and center.
