Disney has a new candy out called DIG n DIPS. This new candy has been very controversial with two of the Disney Princesses being featured on the packages with an affiliated flavor. The issue arises when Sleeping Beauty is tagged with VANILLA while Princess Tiana is associated with watermelon.
Over the years a stereotype associated with African Americans has been that we favor Watermelon. Although this may be true, this Disney production has stirred up quite some controversy and some people feel as if Disney is mocking the black race. What do you think about Disney choosing to associate Tiana with watermelon instead of other popular red flavors, such as strawberry and cherry. PLEASE COMMENT
