Is this Lone Ranger’s depiction of Native Americans any better than the ones before it?

Well, obviously we can’t see the film yet (unless you can get our mitts on a screener copy which are given out to the press for reviews), but based on Johnny Depp’s cartoonish depiction of a Native warrior and the mere fact that you don’t see his face, it does not bode well for any kind of mature, adult, or realistic depiction of Native Americans in this film. Yet.

Disney’s First “Latina” Princess is White w/Blue Eyes. Nice.

I read an article recently about another upcoming Disney project with it’s “first Latina” fairy princess, Sofia, and sure enough, bold as daylight, she’s white as white can be and with big blue eyes.

The TV movie, which apparently will also go to regular series, is entitled “”Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess.” And maybe it’s her light brown hair and name that are supposed to make her Latina, because it sure ain’t any other aspect that I can see.

 

Now, I don’t know about you, but I haven’t met too many Latinas with pale skin and blue eyes, have you? If you have, let me know.

 

But at any rate, here’s a link to the entire piece:
