DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a computer animated feature starring a black character.
I still don’t get why people raise any kind of fuss over this, good or bad. The race and/or sex of your main character is not relevant to the work’s quality. In any way.
