While it may be a coincidence, Aurora from Disney’s movie, “Sleeping Beauty” is used to sell vanilla candy. The candies were part of a Valentines Day line of candies using Disney’s princesses as selling tool.

“Princess And The Frog,” was initially criticized by several in the African American community because the Princess was named Maddy and worked as a maid which many felt was stereotypical. Disney responded to the criticism and change her name from Maddy to Tiana and changing her profession from maid to waitress.

There has been a long standing stereotype that African Americans have an affinity for eating watermelon that’s been used to mock Black people and Black culture.
