    White mermaids don't even exist, so this is a non issue over a non-historical issue.

    Arguably, the original Little Mermaid itself had the mermaids showed prejudice against humans for their piscivorous ways. Throwing in interracial conflict between African- and European-descended people would be another layer complicating everything like I said.

    I should add, by the way, that I never liked the original Disney interpretation of The Little Mermaid. It's fundamentally about someone who changes her species because she has an extremely idealized vision of what human beings and their land-lubbing life are like (she never gets corrected for thinking human parents "never reprimand their daughters"), and because she wants to be with a dude she barely even knows. OG Ariel is the mermaid equivalent of a weeaboo who gets all their knowledge of Japanese culture from anime.
    I'm aware of the two examples you mentioned, yes they do tackle issues of racism, but I was speaking specifically to the original Disney Mermaid tale.

    And LOL, many others have made similar comments of Disney Ariel, she's basically a dumb idealistic teenage girl who rebels cause "yolo" .

    We now have an idea who the new Ariel's daddy will be.

    Disney mermaid biology just got a lot weirder.

    It's possible they really are going the colorblind casting route like Disney sometimes does with their Broadway shows.

    Or the mailman.

    Do mermaids have a postal service?

    Anyway, yeah, it looks like it was just casting for the person they thought best for the role. Javier Bardem is one actor I really like, I’d see the movie based on that. I am not really familiar with the work of the person who plays Ariel, but I heard she is a good singer.

    I'm a fan of the 007 books. The Casino Royale book that Fleming wrote was pretty hardcore. The Casino Royale movie was a pretty good adaptation of Ian Fleming's first Bond book.

    It's coming. Get ready you "white supremacists."

    I don't really care as I don't watch a lot of movies and I am very picky when it comes to that. I don't watch T.V. either they are all propaganda vectors. Also, I am not a white supremacist I am a white racist and yes there can be a difference between the two. I don't really know who you are talking to since this site has a low google page number ranking and a poor Alexa number rating.

    Let P be a white supremacist

    Let Q be a white racist





    P =>Q is true

    P <=> Q is false

    (P => Q) ^ (Q =>P) is true

    (P=>Q) v (Q=>P) is false

    A truth table is a mathematical table used in logic—specifically in connection with Boolean algebra, boolean functions, and propositional calculus—which sets out the functional values of logical expressions on each of their functional arguments, that is, for each combination of values taken by their logical variables (Enderton, 2001). In particular, truth tables can be used to show whether a propositional expression is true for all legitimate input values, that is, logically valid.

    A truth table has one column for each input variable (for example, P and Q), and one final column showing all of the possible results of the logical operation that the table represents (for example, P XOR Q). Each row of the truth table contains one possible configuration of the input variables (for instance, P=true Q=false), and the result of the operation for those values. See the examples below for further clarification. Ludwig Wittgenstein is often credited with inventing the truth table in his Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus,[1] though it appeared at least a year earlier in a paper on propositional logic by Emil Leon Post.

    Netflix sucks. Everytime I want to watch a movie on it they never have it. It's like they specialize in B quality movies.


    The underlying technology of Netflix is good. I runs on FreeBSD and shiznit my nigz but they push garbage material. The only show I liked on it was a series on mathematics from Marcus Sautoy the head of Britain for the public understanding of science. The position Richard Dawkins used to have. Marcus is not a raving Atheist , though.
    Sean Connery was my favorite Bond , BTW. I thought the best of the Daniel Craig ones was skyfall.

    You got the "or" and "and" operators the wrong way around.

    If P→Q is true then (P→Q)∨(Q→P) is also true.

    I'm a white racist (Q), but I'm not a white supremacist (P) because I'm a chink supremacist. Therefore (P→Q)∧(Q→P) is also false in my case.

    Further perspective: they misappropriate only the morally-good characters.
