Political Activism and George Clinton lyrics all wrapped into one.



    Remember when Disney was all like ‘fuck how races work and homogeneous casts and couples’?

    Black and white couple produce fillipino-american child. White dude is the valet. White step mother, one white step sister, one black step sister. Just a jumble, and it ought to happen again.

    Some facts from imdb:

    First multi-racial cast performing Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

    Whitney Houston was producing Rodger and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” and was to star in it until she decided that Brandy Norwood would make a better Cinderella. Brandy would not do it unless her idol Whitney took the Fairy Godmother role.

    Brandy Norwood became the first African-American to play Cinderella. This version broke viewer-ship records when it debuted, and it holds the record for the bestselling video for a made for TV movie.

    So fuck any noise where people say audiences don’t want to see a mixed race couple, or more people of color. This was a success from television. I still remember Brandy singing Impossible. 

    That ought to happen again. Mixed race live action cast where the relationships don’t made genetic or racial sense.

    This is the truest color blind casting I have ever seen.

    And this is the best Disney Princess movie ever

    "Your too fat."

    "I didn’t know [insert character] was black!"

    "Why don’t you do more black cosplays?"

    "Cosplay to your size!"

    "I don’t think that looks right on you, why don’t you cosplay [insert character] instead?"

    "Why is [insert character] black? They’re not black in the show."

    "You shouldn’t cross-play, it looks weird on you."

    "Your boobs are too big for [insert character]."

    To everyone who as ever posted a comment or question like this, my answer:

    I am a black plus size female cosplayer, if you don’t like it… well honestly I don’t care. The more you comment like an idiot, the more it feeds my will power to prove I’m an amazing cosplayer, not matter what you say. I may have days, or even weeks when I feel down about myself, but that will never stop me from doing what I love. I may have large boobs, chubby stomach, double chin, hair on my face, dark spots around my face and body, and a flat butt, but I rock any cosplay I put on. So grow up, and get out of my face. <3
