No, it only matters for the region the story takes place in. I guess part of my answer could be "Yes, I want a character I can relate to culturally!" Not to relate necessarily but because I like the traditional European fairy tale style the best. I like the castles, dresses, royalty, dances, and the vibes of those stories. I like the first five princess movies best and one part I like about them is they are so beautifully Old Europe it makes me happy. :)

Diversity's nice, but it's not what makes or breaks a movie for me.

It feels like there's enough white disney princesses, I know a lot of people of color would love to see a dp who isn't white they can relate to and be excited about

For the most part no, but I like that there's diversity in the lineup - Middle Eastern, Native American, Asian, African American and hopefully - Polynesian. Just crossing my fingers Moana gets added one day. I think as long as the race of the character makes sense culturally - like obviously have an Asian character for Mulan, etc or making Pocahontas white would obviously be very awkward.

It depends, but mostly yes. We need more diversity for sure

I don't really mind either way, but I prefer if there were more PoC, we had five white princesses already then after they reverted back to white princesses again where I think diversity was still needed. The only white princess I was really glad to see because it explore culture more was Merida.

I used to want more diversity. Then, I realized that even though the characters were growing more diverse, their value system kept further diverging from my own value system.

Other factors now matter more to me. Values matter more to me than the skin color.

I do like to have more diversity in DP lineup but it's not the most important thing from a princess imo. Her personality, characterization, and values matters more for me.

AdelitaI picked Yes, I want zaidi diversity!:
It doesn't mean I like PoC automatically more than white. I love Pocahontas and Tiana. I have compicated feelings for Mulan( I strongly relate to her, I sympatize her for facing so much injustice, I love her design but at the same time I find her overrated). I don't care about Jasmine.
However, I am very glad that Disney created PoC princesses. I don't like that fairytales are often associated with medieval Europe. I know a lot of beautiful Middle Eastern and Chinese tales, they are no less beautiful, just less famous.

To judge people by race and how they look stupid. The main thing that a person has inside. If a person is ugly in the depths of the soul, no appearance and origin is no longer important. But I encourage diversity at the same time. I just do not want to focus too much on this.

not really..i dont want diversity for the heck of it. Neither do i relate to someone just because they are of the same race. So, it doesnt matter.

Also, race =/= culture. I'm white like Merida but can't relate to her culturally.

I don't care if a character is white, brown, pretty, plain, short, etc because it has nothing to do with their values or choices, which is all I really look for. It's nice to have a princess who shares your looks or culture for sure, but I don't find it necessary. I mean, I adore Norway but I'd probably still like and relate to Anna as much as I do if she were American or Italian or Cambodian or whatever.

And please miss me with that "white people have no diversity" Americentric nonsense. (And even then white Americans still have it.). If you mean nonwhite, just say that.
