The Little Mermaid

FOLKS HAVE PAINTED JESUS—OR SCULPTED—IN THEIR OWN LIKENESS FOR GENERATIONS. WHY NOT A MERMAID OR ANY OTHER CHARACTER TO MAKE THE STORY RELEVANT? HMMMM-?

Disney has announced Halle Bailey will be playing Ariel in the upcoming live-action movie of The Little Mermaid! I am so excited. How great will it be for little girls to see another BLACK PRINCESS?! Hell, I’m excited to see it! Princess Tiana didn’t come out until 2009, and I was 13, so I didn’t really get into it. Bummer! It would’ve been great to have that type of representation.

I know there’s currently a lot of criticism going on regarding the actress being black. This isn’t very pleasant because a Danish author wrote the original story, but the (Disney) princess herself doesn’t exemplify being Danish. This story is not like Pocahontas, whose storyline revolves around her culture.

I can’t wait to see this movie in theaters! I’m so excited to have another film with a black princess to show my future daughter. Besides, does anyone remember Brandy as Cinderella?…

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
