In response to this post about the “What’s a Coastie?” song, Renee Ghert Zand of Truth, Praise & Help shared this video. Landline TV spoofs classic Disney “behind the scenes” shorts about the making of a fictional new animated film about a Jewish American Princess called “Rachel and the Dragon.”
Watch the video here.
This is clearly intended to be satire, and personally I found it hilarious. Since it was so obviously satire, as opposed to the iffy “Coastie” song, I don’t find it offensive. It did bring up an interesting point, though. Disney princesses are just as popular as ever, and many African-American girls and parents were excited to see a black woman represented as a Disney princess in the new film, The Princess and the Frog. But will we ever see a Jewish woman as a Disney princess, or are Jewish girls excluded from the “princess” club as a result of the JAP stereotype?
