Disney Pairs First Black Princess Taina With Almost-White Prince Naveen

prince_naveen_princess_taina Disney unveiled Prince Naveen, the dashing young who will try to win the hand of their first black princess Taina in the upcoming film The Princess and The Frog, and critics are in an uproar over his questionable ethnicity. With a name like Naveen and a complexion that rivals Aladdin, many are wondering why Disney chose to take an ambiguously ethnic route instead of portraying a Prince of darker brown tones more in line with Taina.

Corina, Corina: The 1994 comedy with heart followed housekeeper Corina Washington (Whoopi Goldberg) as she helps young Molly cope with the death of her mother.

Guess Who: The 2005 take on the 1967 classic featured Zoe Saldana bringing her white fiance (played by Ashton Kutcher) home to her skeptical black father (played by the late Bernie Mac).

Something New: The 2006 mainstream romantic comedy found Sanaa Lathan's Kenya McQueen trying something new during a blind date with a hunky landscaper Brian (Simon Baker), who happens to be white. And who couldn't fall in love with a man that helps you embrace your natural curl?
