Your outrage over the Black ‘Little Mermaid’ is because of racism, not tradition, according to journalist Justin King.

In US news, journalist Justin King from The Fifth Column is breaking down why the outrage over Disney casting Halle Bailey, from Chloe X Halle, as their live action Little Mermaid is just plain racism and has nothing to do with mermaids tradition. Because the Little Mermaid will be Black, some people are saying #NotMyAriel and rejecting the idea of this Little Mermaid Black actress. Anyone who has seen Chloe and Halle knows that Halle Bailey singing Little Mermaid will be amazing.
