you know what i dont get....why does it matter to even place a time frame on a piece of art, when clearly the artist just want to create elsa into a different race so that girls or women of color could relate to her. I mean should we throw down a piece of history on the lion king's choice of using mostly white actors in an African setting ? does it matter ?  don't censor art.

It would be better if she was fire instead of snow, so it could match with her skin tone and eye color.
Good pic anyway!

I understand peoples desire for there to be more ethnic princesses but I think it crosses a line to take the image of a character that someone probably put a lot of thought and effort into and change the color of their skin!
Racism can go both ways in my opinion

First of all, the artist is not saying that the white-skinned Elsa doesn't look beautiful. She's just tweaking the design. That's like a black girl cosplaying Elsa. There's still a lot of thought and effort that has gone into this drawing, and you have no right to say it "crosses a line". That's racist.

If it was "a black girl cosplaying Elsa" I wouldn't have an issue

So you don't have an issue with people of color cosplaying, but you have an issue with someone changing the skin color? Why? It's not like this design is getting sold to the masses. Disney isn't changing her design.

I'll remember all this next time I see an ethnic character racebent to Caucasian

StrawberryForest Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2016
That's fine.

It's one thing to racebend a character to Caucasian for the hell of it. it's another thing to racebend a character to Caucasian because you feel they'd look prettier that way. (And yes, I've seen a lot of artist racebend to Caucasian simply because they were racist.)

As a Caucasian person, I have no problem with racebending as long as you aren't being disrespectful. This piece isn't being disrespectful.

Drawing a hypothetical ~what if~ isn't racist.... It's just a "what if Elsa was black" not "Elsa should have been black and white Elsa sucks." It's not racist in any way shape or form. Like if someone said "what is Pocahontas had been native Hawaiian instead of Native American?" That's not racist to native Americans.

And we're back to this...
Because I believe racism isn't a one way street and that if it's rasist to do one thing it should be just as racist to do the reverse.
If this had been a black person depicted as white is would be classed as racist. I think this is equally offensive.

That's not a good explanation. You're shouting racist at simple racebending on a fictional character.

2) once again, if someone turned a black person white, it would be racist...

It's whitewashing. While it is important to get one's ethnicity correct, one has permission to wonder what it looks like if it were, say, Polynesian.
Stop whining.

Racism against white people doesn't exist.  People can have prejudices, but racism is systematic oppression by a majority against a minority.  Comparing me drawing a cartoon character as a different race to racism is laughable.

From one white person to another, please stop this nonsense. You're making us look bad.

Saying rasism against white people doesn't exist is like saying sexism against men doesn't exist!
I've had enough of shitty double standards... What would have happened if you drew black person as Caucasian?  Majority and minority count for nothing since there are more Asians than Caucasians, in fact Caucasians are closer to the smallest ethnicity (or at least, of the biggest groups) nowadays which, by your logic, makes them highly prone to racism.

It's funny you should mention that, because you're right! Sexism against men doesn't exist either. I think you are confusing prejudice with institutionalized oppression.

You know what else is funny? That you are flipping your shit over a fanart and acting like this is oppressing you.  It's a picture of a fictional magical ice lady.  And she has brown skin. How insecure are you that you feel threatened by it?  Jesus, get a grip, girl.

I find it hilarious and sad that you think that... and that you think I'm 'flipping my shit', though honestly I think you only say that in an attempt to discredit anything I say, like I'm throwing a tantrum or something... Pathetic!
and since when is being insulted by something make you insecure or threatened?
Pfft! And you think I need to get a grip? How arrogant

In fairness to the artist, she did far more than just changing the color of her skin. The artist also altered her facial shape/features and hairstyle to fit. I'm not going to comment on whether or not this is okay, because that's one debate I don't feel like getting into- I just want to point out that a lot more goes into proper "racebent" characters than just skintone alterations.

Whoopee... that doesn't make it any better and it's so far off the point that it may as well be a completely different topic!
The point was I find it insulting to see a pop culture character depicted as any race than what they are in their fandom! Imagine the kind of explosion drawing Pocahontas with blond hair and white skin would cause, no matter how well done...

And this is the last time I'm going to bother trying to explaining<img src="cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/…" style="background-color: transparent !important; border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; float: none !important; font-style: normal !important; font-variant: normal !important; font-weight: normal !important; font-size: 12px !important; line-height: normal !important; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif !important; height: 10px !important; margin: 0px 0px 0px 3px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; vertical-align: super !important; width: 10px !important; background-position: initial initial !important; background-repeat: initial initial !important;"> before simply blocking anyone who brings this up again...

How I feel about this l you know<nobr>image</nobr> has nothing to do with who I am or my race, for all you know I'm descended from Africans, or Indians, or you don't even know what! And either do I, I know nothing about my own heritage, half my family tree<img src="cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/…" style="background-color: transparent !important; border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; float: none !important; font-style: normal !important; font-variant: normal !important; font-weight: normal !important; font-size: 12px !important; line-height: normal !important; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif !important; height: 10px !important; margin: 0px 0px 0px 3px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; vertical-align: super !important; width: 10px !important; background-position: initial initial !important; background-repeat: initial initial !important;"> is missing!
What I hate it double standards! If someone took a black person (real or fictional) and turned them white, it would be considered racist<img src="cdncache-a.akamaihd.net/items/…" style="background-color: transparent !important; border: none !important; display: inline-block !important; float: none !important; font-style: normal !important; font-variant: normal !important; font-weight: normal !important; font-size: 12px !important; line-height: normal !important; font-family: Verdana, sans-serif !important; height: 10px !important; margin: 0px 0px 0px 3px !important; min-height: 0px !important; min-width: 0px !important; padding: 0px !important; vertical-align: super !important; width: 10px !important; background-position: initial initial !important; background-repeat: initial initial !important;">! So, I consider this racist!

Do not put words in my mouth... ever again!
