A few months ago, an Aboriginal mom named Rachel Muir took her daughter Samara to a Disney themed event in Melbourne. Samara, like nearly every other little girl her age, is a huge Frozen fan and wore her Elsa costume accordingly.

I looked around the line and there were little girls of all different races lining up dressed as their favorite Disney characters. We were in Melbourne, one of the most multicultural places in the world. I couldn't believe it.”
