>>86324828>>Movie is clearly actually trying and didn't just pick the setting and shit for diversity points.
That's one thing that bugged me about Princess and the Frog. They wanted a black princess, but they didn't make her an African princess of any kind for some reason. Then they decide to put her in early 20th century American South, but have absolutely no references to the place of black people in that era (hell, Tiana's even friends with an upper-class white girl).
It's like they wanted to make her black, but were too scared to do anything with it. I've assumed there was heavy executive meddling in Princess and the Frog, where a lot of suits were paranoid about the movie being labelled as racist if they made her "too" black or something.
