Before I move on to the train ride from yesterday, I need to mention one other observation during the 2015 version of Cinderella.
Now, before you judge me- I am a minority myself. Sure, I may appear white on the outside, but my religion puts me side by side with my African American fellow minorities.
That being said, there is no way in hell the prince’s hunting buddy nor fencing friend would be a black man. It is at that point in the film (17 minutes and 43 seconds) where I found the already impossible fairytale – beyond belief.
Let me give you an example. Imagine going to the movies and seeing a movie remaking the Freedom Riders. Now… imagine David Duke being one of the riders. Or, if that one doesn’t clear it up, how about this: Schindler’s list. Now, its the same cast, but with one addition. For this image, you can imagine it two ways… Denzel Washington is either an inmate or a guard.
I rest my case.
