Ariel’s skin color is not relevant to the story, right? What’s important is her personality and voice, right? I grew up dressing up as her even tho I’m not white, and it didn’t matter to me, cuz I could relate to her personality. Halle can act and can sing. What’s the issue? pic.twitter.com/0tBUh7kJOu
