In short he was trying to be slick.

 

I don't think that is probably true.  The German fairy tale of Brunhilde (Americans say Broomhilda) is as popular as Cinderella to much of the world, maybe not to Black people, but . . . so, we may be tempted to come to such a conclusion if a Black woman played Cinderella (and Cinderella has been played by a Black woman).  (But, I must say, I've often wondered if Cinderella was really the story of an enslaved or indentured Black girl).
