Controversy over Disney’s interracial film
Disney has its first African American princess, Tiana, in the new interracial film set in New Orleans - “The princess and the frog” - which is to be released in December this year. However, like everything tagged interracial, controversy hasn’t escaped this one either. And it all revolves around the Black princess’ love interest Prince Naveen of Maldonia, a white man.
"It seems to cause some controversy that the princess falls in love with a white prince in the movie”, says Brown, Bang Media. Apparently people are questioning the racist nature of Disney and feel they should have let a Black man be Prince too.

Who said Disney’s first Black princess must have a matching Black prince? I thought people would applaud interracial love since its breaking down segregation. In my opinion, the demand for Disney’s leading couple to be Black is what’s racist.
Do you think there is any real substance to this controversy?
