Twitter’s in a frenzy over Yara’s position — with one particular person writing, “Disney likes to race swap as of late as an alternative of making authentic and new characters which might be POC.”
Disney couldn’t care much less about making new tales with Poc characters, they simply put poc ppl to play white characters, and that exhibits 1) how lazy Disney is 2) how racist that is, it’s like they don’t suppose poc ppl deserve their very own tales (beside like 3 animated films?)
