Quite frankly, it’s getting increasingly hard for this blogger to keep up with all the nonsense, but here goes.
Today, while I was minding my own business, trying to figure out what mariachis have to do with boring conference calls and Harvard, a very important piece of news broke –in very important media outlets, mind you. Disney revealed Elena of Avalor, its first “Latina princess.”
And what — may you be wondering — makes Elena of Avalor a Latina? Well, let Disney explain it in its own words:
Elena lives in an enchanted fairytale kingdom inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore.
Yes, I know, I know, that’s not really quite enough. But there is more:
Her family will include a grandfather named Tito and abuela named Cici and a royal advisor by the name of Duke Esteban.
And that’s where I thought “Of course!” and abuela and a royal advisor? She has got to be a Latina.
