I dont know what you mean by ‘light-skin’ privilege, because trust me I don’t. In the photo I attached to my blog I look a bit lighter than my natural complexion but trust me, I do not have any special privilege being lighter skinned. I have heard this 'lighter skin privilege’ BS from girls of my own culture before which in all honesty does nothing but separate us as a people.
However getting back to the point of whether I am dark enough to protray a cartoon character… like mentioned before, the person/parents that book me for parties get to see my photo beforehand, so if I am 'affecting their dreams’ as you say, they could go with another party company. No one is forcing them to choose the one I work for, moreover there are many party companies that have a Tiana character availible. Also in the almost 3 years of portraying a professional princess I have never had a child say to me “you are not Tiana” when I show up to their biryhday.
I agree with you that people of color arent portrayed enough in the media, but if Tiana is strictly for 'darker skinned’ girls, then which Princess should I look up to?
You are entitled to your own opinion, but I think you are wrong in your assumptions about me.
