DISNEY’S FIRST BLACK PRINCESS CAN’T FIND A BLACK PRINCE?
Prince Naveen and Princess Tiana are pictured. Some criticize that Prince Naveen is too “white” looking. These critics wonder why Disney’s first Black princess can’t find a Black prince.
Via TheDailyMail:While some have hailed Disney’s decision as a reflection of melting pot America, others say the company is sending out a mixed message. Although the black princess’s love interest in the new animated musical is called Prince Naveen of Maldonia and is voiced by a Brazilian actor, he looks more white than black in photographs from the film that Disney have released.
Since Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937, all of Disney’s princesses have predominantly been white.
A native Indian princess was featured in Pocahontas and Jasmine in Aladdin had a Middle Eastern appearance. The race row hasn’t yet hit the mainstream because the film’s release date isn’t until late in the year, but Internet chat rooms and blogs have been abuzz with complaints.
One disappointed fan wrote (sic): ‘I think it’s sad that he is white because its saying that black love isn’t good enough and that black men could never be princes. ‘Disney had the perfect chance to make its first black prince, but instead it decided to go the controversial route.’
Another complained (sic): ‘I am very disappointed and I wished Disney had made the prince black,(and the ironic thing is the prince in the movie is white but the evil voodoo villain is voiced by a black actor and is black).’ Since announcing their plans for the first black princess in 2006 the production of Hollywood studio’s 49th animated film has been dogged by racial controversy.
Originally called The Frog Princess, its heroine was to be a chambermaid called Maddy working for a spoilt white debutante in 1920s New Orleans.
But the storyline sparked a backlash from critics who claimed it reinforced prejudice and demeaned black people.
The princess’s original name was perceived by some to be a stereotypical ‘slave name’ and she was also a maid working for a wealthy white boss, which was criticised as being racially insensitive.
Even the New Orleans setting for the film was questioned as it had overtones of voodoo and slavery.
Disney has insisted its choice of a black princess was part of a policy to give characters as much diversity as possible.
Well none of this is all that shocking...typical. I mean look as how long it took for Disney to even have a black princess...what's up with that? So surely no one should be shocked at how they are doing her now that she is finally here...pssshht...whatever Disney.

If you watched Monday night’s episode of RuPaul’s Drag Race, then you know that Ongina, a.k.a. Ryan Palao, out diva’d the competition to win the coveted title of MAC Viva Glam Spokesperson for a Day—that day being today. Earlier this morning, the newly crowned Glamazon appeared at MAC’s Flatiron District store to help raise awareness of HIV/AIDS and to present a $25,000 check on behalf of the MAC AIDS Fund to the Hetrick-Martin Institute at the Harvey Milk High School, a New York City public high school that strives to be a pluralistic haven for students of all races, genders, sexual orientation, religions, and physical abilities. We caught up with the fiercest of them all to learn about her, er, his (?), dedication to the cause, why only Beyoncé can outdo RuPaul, and to pick up a few makeup tips, of course.
Fergie, Lisa Marie, Dita. What is it like being in such good company as an official Viva Glam Spokesperson?
A definite addition to this incredible journey we call life.It’s one adventure I will always treasure and I am truly blessed to have met so many amazing people because of the show.It has helped me grow further as Ongina as well as Ryan!
How has your own HIV-positive diagnosis compelled you to get involved in AIDS awareness initiatives?
Well, I want people to know that life should be celebrated, no matter what happens. We have to celebrate our individuality, our creativity, our passion, our decisions, and everything else in between. AIDS is an epidemic that affects all walks of life, and as difficult as the decision was for me to “come out” about my status, if I touch even just one person’s heart, I know I’m on the right path. I hope to one day inspire others and teach them that life with HIV is just as glamorous as life without!
Your skill with the wand and the brush surely helps you in the glamour department. What’s currently in your makeup bag?
I recently purchased MAC Viva Glam VI SE Lipglass and am equally obsessed with my C-Thru Lipglass, as well as the MAC Pro Shaping Powder in Emphasize. It adds the right amount of highlight where you need it most!
Do you have any makeup tips you can share with us that are essential for peek drag performance?
The one thing that I learned from some of the queens on the show is how to glue your eyebrows down so you can create a higher brow and more lid for applying shadows!
I love my mother. She is truly beautiful inside and out and has sacrificed so much for us to be where we are today. I’m blessed and proud to be her son. I also think that RuPaul is one hell of a drag queen. She is stunning. And I’m pretty obsessed with Beyoncé. I like that she takes risks.

We are beyond words.
This image, said to be that of pop idol Rihanna (Robyn Fenty), is absolutely heart wrenching. Just looking at this image sends all sorts of emotions racing through our minds. "Is this for real?" "Is that really Rihanna....?" "Did cute Chris Brown do that?" "Am I seeing things?"
Oh how we wish we were seeing things.
Domestic violence is out of control! Now that domestic violence has a face that most Americans recognize and love, it seems to mean so much more. While we are not down playing the countless faces that have been affected by domestic violence, it just seems that now, since this has allegedly happened to Rihanna, it seems just that much more real in so many eyes in America. Eyes of those both young and old. This alleged incident has touched and affected so many people and has bought attention to the ugly, ugly side of domestic violence that otherwise may not have been revealed. The fact that now "young Hollywood" is at the center of something that has always seemed so taboo and reserved for a certain "type" of person, it takes on a whole new meaning.
After a little research, the statistic are jaw dropping.
~ 85-95% of all domestic violence victims are female
~ 5.3 million women are abused each year
~1,232 women are killed each year by an intimate partner
~ Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women
So what now? Do we just move on from this topic like so many other topics that make front page? Do we just dismiss this like we do all the other stories from the most popular gossip sites? Well we certainly hope not. While we are all concerned for the parties involved, now is not the time to just drop it and move on to the next "juicy gossip". It is time that we all, men and women alike, take a stand against domestic violence. There are so many agencies that offer help to individuals that are in potentially dangerous situations. These agencies can also offer help and insight to those whose loved ones and friends may be in domestic situations but refuse to get out...or don't know how to get out. It is crucial that we do not ignore signs and bruises or give up on our family and friends who could one day add to these unbelievable statistics. We know that sometimes you just don't know what to do, where to turn or who to talk to regardless if you are on the inside or the outside of the situation. Well here are some agencies that would be more than happy to help:
Yes, sure, everyone is talking about, "but their careers"....while this alleged incident between Rihanna and Chris Brown may or may not have colossal affects on their careers, that does not negate the fact that they are regular people who allegedly may be caught up in a domestic violence case. A case that, like any other, is due its day in court. We have to honor that and not prosecute nor persecute either of them publicly. Let us all focus on how we can do our part to make a difference in the lives of others who may be affected by this or may be dealing with domestic violence right now! That is the lesson in all of this...what can we do to see the statistics scale dip in the other direction?
Please, everyone, love yourself enough to know that someones "loving you" is not going to leave cuts and bruises all over your body. There is help...please don't be afraid to ask for it.
