    And race isn’t determined by skin colour alone.

    The flag is a Palestinian flag, not a PLO flag. The post-it note was placed next to Israel, not over it, indicating where Palestine would be if both states were allowed to exist.

    On which I posted the other day: And let me add further that as well as being poorly chosen, her words demonstrate a very shaky grasp indeed of the region’s history.

    Omar has said some disgracefully anti-Semitic things. She’s apologised for them, but I’m not convinced that she doesn’t remain prejudicial in her thinking. As for Tlaib, what remarks of hers are you referring to?

    I would change the bolded to “highlight your target’s perceived or supposed otherness”. Not all forms of racism are predicated on differences of skin colour (think anti-Semitism or hatred towards Eastern Europeans).

    You’re talking about me and wilfully misrepresenting what I said, despite my having corrected you last night: https://forums.wdwmagic.com/threads/is-disney-making-a-live-action-the-little-mermaid-movie.913556/page-39#post-8786541...

    It says a lot that this qualifies as a commendable response on his part. Too little, too late. Any leader of substance would have shut the chant down as it was happening.

    This is key. Not once has he apologised for or in any way tempered his behaviour. On the contrary, he’s only ramped it up. And if you knowingly and willingly engage in behaviour that is widely regarded as racist, you are, by definition, a racist (or at the very least content to be regarded as one).

    Is Disney Making a Live-Action The Little Mermaid Movie?

    The bolded is another of your misrepresentations rather than anything I said. As I’ve stated multiple times now, I’m pleased Disney is doing something new with the character, even if I was initially surprised by the decision. My references to Harry’s lack of resemblance to cartoon Eric are...

    Is Disney Making a Live-Action The Little Mermaid Movie?

    Physically, I think Henry Cavill is the closest match to animated Eric, but, like Chris Evans, he’s far too old for Halle. The more time I have to get used to it, the more I like the idea of Harry in the role.

    Is Disney Making a Live-Action The Little Mermaid Movie?

    There are plenty of actors out there with builds closer to cartoon Eric’s. You named one yourself: Nick Jonas. And to be clear, I’m not saying the new Eric should look like the old. On the contrary, I’m asking why the “But it’s about resemblance, not race” brigade seem unbothered by the casting...

    Is Disney Making a Live-Action The Little Mermaid Movie?

    The animated Prince Eric is my personal dreamboat, but I agree that it’s good to see the character reinterpreted in this way.

    I said he was hunky, not a meathead.

    Is Disney Making a Live-Action The Little Mermaid Movie?

    Though he’s not what I had in mind, I’m fascinated to see what he does with the role and pleased that Disney has made another departure from the animated film by casting him.

    Is Disney Making a Live-Action The Little Mermaid Movie?

    Cartoon Eric is a broad-shouldered hunk, whereas Harry is slim and boyish. These are differences that cannot be bridged using hair dye.

    Even in the mother’s absence, the actors chosen to play her sisters would be a good indicator.

    Thank you for these kinds words. I truly appreciate them, even if we often disagree.

    There is no implication. I’m explicitly stating that most scientists believe in anthropogenic climate change and that this consensus matters to me even if it doesn’t to others here. That’s really all I have to say on the matter.

    Why no concerns about Harry Styles, who has nothing in common with cartoon Eric other than being a white man?
