They should’ve casted a white skinned redhead as Ariel in The Little Mermaid remake

So she can look more accurate to the 1989 animated film

Nah, it's unlikely they'll ever cast that type of actor, because they want to be more diverse. If anything, an Asian would be a better fit than Halle Bailey.

Basically if Hollywood were to say "WE wANT tO bE MOrE DiVeRse IN OUR rEMaKes", I would say, "Well then use an Asian if you want to be diverse".

Make "Disney. Pls cast an Asian as Ariel." A petition.

In other words, they use movies as a mere means of promoting diversity, something which doesn't have anything to do with entertainment and is already an inconsistent objective by default since there already is a lot of movies with actors of colour and other races.

They are just doing this with new versions of famous movies so they can get PR points and shock the mainstream viewers.

Also, think about it. For these people the actor is not as important as the race he belongs to. They want a diverse race first, then they look for a person of said race. The single individual doesn't exist for them, only races.

This reasoning by category of people is just the opposite of racism and just as bad and harmful to everyone.

What is your opinion on people defending Halle Bailey as Ariel and calling haters of Halle Bailey’s casting Ariel racist?

DJ2006 (talkcontribs)

It's ridiculous. People say that the people against the casting are racists even though blackwashing is also racist.

Masson Thief (talkcontribs)

Those people use the strawman fallacy to counter the criticism against the casting.

Not only are they changing Ariel to black, they're also changing Scuttle the seagull to female.

Masson Thief (talkcontribs)

Oh you don't say. I wonder why they would do such a thing? But of course that's okay and anyone against it commits hate crime.

FreezingTNT (talkcontribs)

cringes extremely hard

LA2002 (talkcontribs)

Well, I can guess the film would be doomed to fail.

Masson Thief (talkcontribs)

I don't know. Many average viewers gobbles up everything you serve them.

No Face (talkcontribs)

I would've watched it if they casted an Asian.

FreezingTNT (talkcontribs)

You still can't change an already-established character and replace their iconic features just for so-called "diversity". Also, why an Asian instead of black or white?

Masson Thief (talkcontribs)

It's bureaucracy of progressism. The preposterous belief that movies, which are just works of fiction, must reflect how the population is divided in real life. The more you carefully think about it, the more it becomes stupid in your mind.

Asian women look pretty. And Ariel is said to be a beauty, both on the outside and the inside.
