Tiana’s father and her make some gumbo for supper that night and decide to share with all the neighbors. Tianas’ family went outside to the front porch and announced to everyone outside that they made gumbo and to come and get some.

Another example of classism involves Prince Naveen’s servant, Lawrence. Lawrence begins the movie muddling along trying to balance all of the Prince’s needs while being largely taken for granted, however, when Lawrence is given the chance to pass as Prince Naveen and gain wealth and power
