I agree. This falls under the category of historical accuracy as I mentioned above.
pinnochio is italian. black fairies have no business being in the film (nor do pedophiles like tom hanks, but thats something different) as there were no black italians in 19th c. tuscany.
further, there is not one record in mythology about any fairies, leprachauns, kobolds, elves, or dwarfs being anything but white. this is part of white european (irish/english/scandinavian) lore.
are you still for diversity in this context, or do you see how this also is historically (and authentically) inaccurate?
