Chief Wahoo vs Moana

I know I will be attacked for this, but I am hoping for some civil conversation....

 

How is this:

Different than this:

Both are caricatures; both have exaggerated features; both are minorities.  

Yet, the Disney character will sell Tshirts and dolls and $400M in movie tickets.  

And Wahoo is considered a raciest image.

 

(I realize there was some discussion over a Halloween costume for boys, but I never fully understood the controversy)

 

So, what is the difference between these two characters? And, please, don't attack me, don't call me a raciest, don't tell me I'm naive.  I will respect your views. But, I am honestly curious at what image one finds offensive while another, which seems to be in the same vein, is not.
