This is the best live in my opinion.
It’s heartbreaking to see Black children at a young age, view themselves as ugly and mean through these doll tests. 🙁 As we say all the time, positive representation/images matters when it comes to dark and light skinned Black people. The media does a horrible job with this, but like you said, it’s up to us to show our children the beauty in our skin constantly, so they can grow up feeling confident and loving themselves.
I missed this live but I’m playing catch up now. I was wondering if black children think the black images were bad because they may consider themselves bad or have siblings that cause trouble. If black children didn’t grow up around white children how could they know if white children were bad or not. I did the doll test with my daughter when she was 4 years old because I was curious in her answer. I asked her which doll was prettier. She picked the white one and that messed me up so badly. Everyday I instill in her that black is beautiful until it gets annoying sometimes. I compliment her on all her features daily so how could she pick this doll. She has black dolls and everything. I believe its the cartoons and the Youtube shows. I don’t want anyone influencing her so I limit what she watches.
