Aladdin

2007-06-01
There's something curious about Disney's Aladdin. You may not have noticed it, but although everyone is supposed to be Arabic, the "good guys" have American accents and white skin (in most scenes), while the bad guys have foreign (Arabic?) accents and brown skin. Somebody had to make this decision consciously. It might have been a result of social programming, or more insidiously, an attempt to impose it.
