just think about y’all millions and millions of little dark skinned black girls are going to go to the supermarket with their parents this month and when they’re waiting in line at the check out aisle they’re going to look up and see Lupita Nyong’o being hailed as the most beautiful woman in the world god is amazing
Remember when Mitt Romney spoke at the NAACP National Convention
So when I went up to get my art autographed, Posey was like I KNOW THIS ONE, IT’S ON MY PHONE. They weren’t supposed to allow photos, but they let me take this quick one.
Laziness starting to kick in as these last 2 weeks of classes dwells on. But I can’t let it get me and prevent me from working on my papers, reading these books and desperately trying to pass music & physics (pray for me y’all! Lesson of the day kids: if you’re not interest in music/study music theory, then don’t take a physics course centered on music. *facepalm*)
Goodnight world!!!! :) ^_^

There have long been debates regarding Disney’s lack of diversity and further, the lack of diversity in dolls for children of color. While reading an article on this subject matter, I came across a comment that made me raise a brow. A reader commented: “The color of these characters is not a big deal. Kids watching won’t see any difference if no difference is highlighted. They will grow up thinking anyone can fit into these roles.”
I’ve seen the sentiment expressed in this comment numerous times in an effort to brush off a call for diversity as “overreacting.” There’s this prevalent myth that kids do not see color. That they grow up colorblind not understanding race relations, but personal experience and social research has proven otherwise.
Let me start with experience:
During thanksgiving break, my 6 year old sister convinced me to play dolls with her. While brushing her doll’s hair, my sister said “Her hair is not like mine. She has white people’s hair.” Caught off guard by her statement, I asked “What do you mean white people hair Kelly?” At first she hesitated to respond but after a few minutes, she replied “Her hair is straight, not like mine.” My 4 year old brother quickly followed “Yeah, and she’s not brown like you either.”
My sister’s comment proved that even at this young age, she noticed the differences in her doll baby and in herself. She noticed that her doll’s hair is straighter, that it has a small sharp nose, a skinny body. She noticed that her doll is white and that she is brown. Most importantly, she noticed that those characteristics listed all belonged to white women.
