Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance: The depiction of the slave in most versions is... not exactly something that would go down well in the modern day. She's always portrayed as evil, usually as an idiot, many versions mention her mistress beating her as if it were no big deal, and most of the older versions spend a disturbing amount of time describing how disappointed everyone is by ''the mere fact she has black skin''.

* UnfortunateImplications: Most likely due to ValuesDissonance, but one version of the tale basically is all about how the value of a prospective wife is entirely centered on the color of her skin. The prince considers girls with white or pink skin to be common, his father thinks that women with dark skin are stupid and ugly, the hideous gypsy girl who acts as the false bride has skin "the color of clay", and the beautiful princess has golden skin.
** Most foreign versions of the story have the false bride serve as some ethnic stereotype, such a Turk, Gypsy, Moor, or African.
