Little 2-year-old Sophia Brenner managed in one quick exchange to shut down any opening for prejudice, and all before her own mother could step in for her. Sophia was in Target, excited to pick out a reward for one of those massive toddler stepping stones, potty training. And because Sophia wants to be a doctor when she grows up, she naturally gravitated to the doctor doll. The reaction from the cashier though was alarming at the very least.
Are you sure this is the doll you want, honey?…She doesn’t look like you. We have lots of other dolls that look more like you.
You see, the doll Sophia had picked out happened to be black, and Sophia was clearly white. Before the incredible little girl’s mother could step in Sophia responded with a simple:
Yes please! ‘She’s a doctor like I’m a doctor,”she said. “And I’m a pretty girl and she’s a pretty girl. See her pretty hair? And see her stethoscope?
Yeah, lady, see her stethoscope?
The cashier dropped the issue, shut down by the reality of her own ignorance, and the amazing purity of a child, who just saw a pretty doll, and in that doll a pretty Sophia.
