Commented on Disney's Frozen Whitewashing Controversy

To the whole “whitewashed Sámi” debate… aren’t the questions and the answers actually pretty straightforward?

Q: Is there anything about Kristoff’s appearance that makes it impossible for him to be a Sámi?
A: No.

Q: Could he, in fact, pass pretty easily for a Sámi?
A: Yes.

Q: Does the "authentically Sámi " Kristoff look more like an actual Sámi than Disney’s original Kristoff?
A: No.

Q: And most importantly, have any actual Sámi people complained about Kristoff’s appearance?
A: No.

And that should be the end of that discussion.

So… which one of those two guys would stand out, if he was in this picture of the Norwegian Sámi Parliament?

And yeah, the whole “shooting the messenger” thing is just… weird. I guess you just gotta laugh about it…
