I'm fine with them making Ariel black as long as her fantasy undersea experiences are congruent with the African American experience. Meaning Ariel has two babies and doesn't know who da fathers is. She gets a welfare check she wastes once a month on drugs. Occasionally whores herself out to other mermen for cash. And she wants to get with that white boy who lives on land because that mo fo got a good job, and he would set her ass up for lyfe.
