“Woke” People are at it Again. They Made the Little Mermaid BLACK.
Part Two (It helps if you’ve read Part One.)
A quick recap of Part I. The Disney Corporation is shooting a live-action The Little Mermaid, and in a cowardly capitulation to the wicked “Woke-ists,” the new mermaid is being portrayed by a black actress. There are many who are not amused.
Disney is deliberately stirring up controversy. Disney is re-making a “classic” film for no reason. Disney is pandering to a “multi-cultural” audience and dissing white people. Disney is changing a fairy tale that “everyone knows” already. Disney is practicing “reverse racism.” Disney is offending my sensibilities by having the audacity to alter a cherished, childhood memory. I, for one, will not be patronizing this new, controversial, unnecessary, racist, and disrespectful film. (Stamp foot; toss head.)

I know, right? We can agree that the passage is written in English. After that, it’s my best guess. I infer that the writer is saying:
