Movie weekend making history

Do you have plans to see the new Disney Movie, "The Princess and the Frog" starring Broadway sensation and actress Anika Noni Rose? Not only will this mark a first for Disney to feature an African-American Princess, but some of the office chatter has been some of the dialect, which keep in mind the movie is based in New Orleans, may come across as being a bit 'baffonish' according to some..Although it may be a valid statement from some, let's not lose sight that this can also be a teaching tool for our children that this is a world that suppose to accept persons of ALL races, creeds, colors, religions, and even languages. And the Princess, who looks beautiful from the movie trailers I've seen on television, and comes across to me as an intelligent woman of color..keep that as the focus to want to pass along to your child or children..especially to our beautiful young girls and teenagers, who otherwise may not be told on a regular basis!...I'M JUST SAYING....
