The Frog Princess

Our beautiful Princess Tiana of New Orleans, Louisiana, from the new Disney movie coming out called The Frog Princess is our first Native American Black Princess. Have you heard or seen anything in regards to this? My best friend just called me up and told me about it. Her main concern as a Native Black American woman is that her son and daughters are going to grow up feeling like every other race is better than black because young Princess Tiana's Prince Charming is a Brazilian man. Would she make such a big deal out of it if it where a black prince with a Spanish Princess or an African Prince with a French Princess? Or would it be such a big deal if it where the fourth or fifth Black Princess? In Aladdin they didn't make Aladdin white but should this be a concern? Do you see this as society not building confidence in our young Native Black American boys? This is really something to think about. What do you think?
