The fact that it's supossed to be 1800s is an excuse. I really don't get racists and I don't want to get them. But if they claim they are not rasict and they are it's not okay.

The story line was concentrating on Tiana being able to rise above her poverty through hard work and a little bit of luck in finding herself a prince. The way you want the movie to be non-racist would be like saying that none of country's history ever happened, that African Americans had rights back in the early 1900's (that's when it was set- heyday of New Orleans) so Tiana really could do whatever she wanted, blah blah blah. There's an entire scene in the movie where Tiana isn't allowed to buy some property because she's a black female and there's a white buyer who can pay more. It's simply how it was back then, and I'm glad they showed what really went down without making it traumatic for younger children. You can't cahnge what happened, but Disney really did show some female empowerment with Tiana's capable hard work and grace, and I think that's a good thing.

But instead of doing that they made a movie that is in the 1800s which means that, to be accurate they need Tiana to be poor and everything....

Hand drawn movies are all set a long time ago, which is a good thing, reaching back to bygone eras of movies we wwatched when we were kids. The Princess and the Frog wasn't racist.
