A kid shouldn't be encouraged to see a movie because a certain ethnic group or whatever is in it! That's what SJWs do! If the minority was changed, the kids wouldn't be interested at all. Because it's SHALLOW! You want to make a movie with a gay or brown or trans lead? FINE! If it's important to the story or just how they are, FINE! But changing a character's skin tone for the sake of "inclusion", therefor erasing all the cultural significance and historical importance, is really disrespectful. Appearances shouldn't be a motivation. It DOESN'T "work", as you put it. They only fall in love with a character's looks, because you're saying that's all that matters to a child. That's treating kids like IDIOTS! Because, news flash lady, no kid gives a crap about these dumb race-baiting gender politics!

You want to have a black mermaid? Fine! But not ARIEL! Not The Little Mermaid, which has a specific ethnicity and specific time period and location. Changing the white mermaid to black would harm the story and suck you out of the fantasy, because it reminds you what your watching is fictional and inaccurate and then it doesn't invest you anymore, making you not enjoy the movie as much. Now, character design and appeal is important, but there's a difference between appealing designs and blatantly awful redesigns that aren't artistically motivated, but RACIALLY and POLITICALLY motivated. THIS mermaid, is the latter.
