1. The outside of the palace is inspired por the Taj Mahal.

2. The word "Agra" is in the name Agrabah. Agra is a city in INDIA.

3. Rajah is a tiger. tigres are a symbol of INDIA.

4. Lotus fountains (like the one we see when we're first introduced to Jasmine) are an Indian thing.

People complaining about Naomi being cast as jasmim because she's Indian need to educate themselves.

If you want a version of aladdin with jasmim being played por a Middle Eastern woman, then major in film and get a film degree. It's not Disney's job to please you.

As for the people complaining about her being half-white, ask yourself this. If the actress were half-white and half Middle-Eastern, would you be complaining about her being half-white? Probably not. So why complain that Naomi is half-white? Because she's Indian (which, again, isn't a problem since there are obvious Indian influences in Aladdin)? Isn't that sorta racist in and of itself?
Also, half-Indian, full-Indian, she's still fucking Indian, isn't she?

Talent comes first, not race. It's sad we live in a world where people only see race first. People just want something to complain about (what else is new?) and someone to bully. SJWs are pitiful.
