A lot of human!Lion King show Simba and his family being white even though they have Swahili names and live in the middle of Africa. They still are white because how could they be anything but in this white viewed world? There are no key identifies that are obvious like skin color so of course o with the age old rule: if it isn’t not white, it’s white~
One thing that could help and makes the world of difference are voice actors. Kids pick up on things like that for instance, Cake from Fionna and Cake is voice by a black women, the same black women who voiced Bubby in Misadventures of Flapjack, and many people draw her as black. The proper use of AAV, tone, and infliction of black actor is easy to invision the character as black. Donkey from Sherk, Oscar from Shark Tales, Marty from Madagascar are seen as black because their voice actor are black.
I full heartedly believe if Simba was voiced by a black person no one would draw him as white. Inclusive goes past skin color and actually having black people behind the animals, alien, whatever, can make the world of difference to black children.

Okay here’s the thing: maybe people of color were looked over, but THE ROLE WAS NOT INTENDED FOR PEOPLE OF COLOR
Holy shit he’s supposed to be a superhuman from India. He full name is literally Khan Noonien Singh. Are you a total fuckhead and should I expect you on my page every fucking day?
I’VE HEARD ASIAN AND NOW INDIAN WHO IS RIGHTAlso I’m only “stalking” you so your sexist, racist, bigoted mouth doesn’t slander my name

OKAY LET ME EXPLAIN YOU A THING
WE GET THINGS WRONG
WE ARE ALL TAUGHT WRONG THINGS
I WAS TAUGHT THAT THEY WERE MIDDLE EAST
1) The Middle East is not a Continent so you’re still super fucking tragically and abysmally stupidly white.
2) You came on this post asserting that you were, without a doubt MORE correct than everyone here who A) not only had prior knowledge of the geographical location of India but also B) Knew Khan was supposed to be a South Asian PoC.
So you’re either a racist, a stupid racist, a brave racist or a bravely stupid racist.
You were not TAUGHT to say a wrong thing. You CHOSE to assert your wrongness instead of spending ten seconds in the motherfucking Google.
‘I THOUGHT THAT THEY WERE MIDDLE-EAST’
is this the first time you’ve seen a map or
Here’s an easy way how to remember the continents that my SECOND GRADE teacher taught us:
Do jumping jacks.
When your arms are up, North America.
When your arms are down, South America.
Any time you’re confused about where a country is located, you can use that.
And don’t pull the “we were taught wrong things” bullshit. You were busy picking your nose during your world geography class.
I am fucking dying.
“INDIA ISN’T IN ASSSIIIAAAA WAAAH”
The fucked up thing about white washing is that it makes white people believe incredibly wrong and stupid things. this is some Miss South Carolina shit v2: now the anger and caps lock.
