Ariel and Sabastian

Black mermaids existed thousands of years before “The Little Mermaid.” Ariel is only one fictional character that pales in comparison to the depths and spirituality of various Black mermaids from traditional, indigenous cultures.

Halle Bailey Best Ariel

Halle Bailey is a real-life example of a mermaid because of her divine beauty, extraordinarily warm spirit, unique talents, excellent swimming skills…and oh the voice of a lifetime! Halle Bailey is better than Ariel. But, for the sake of this Hollywood thing, she is Black Ariel Forever.
Another reason I chose the name Black Ariel Forever, is that I want the hate mongers to get so upset they die mad about it.
Okay, now let me get back to being sweet, lol, and continue to build a site based on healing, mental health, beauty, childhood memories, motherhood and so on.
