Cashier Talks White 2-Year-Old Out Of Buying A Black Doll? I've Got Questions.
April 4, 2017
Hey, bigot... um, I mean... cashier-who-thought-it was-her-place-to-try-and-talk-a-TWO-YEAR-OLD-out-of-buying-a-black-doll!
(Did I mention that the kid was two?)
It's Day here. I just have a couple of questions for you. Do you have a minute?
*Doesn't wait for response*
Of course you do! Evidently, you have enough time on your hands to be telling a two year old what color dolls to pick out.
Question #1: Who the hell do you think you are?
You are a cashier.
Your job is to scan customers' items and collect their money, not persuade a toddler to make racist judgments about toys.
And your job is definitely not to try and parent someone else's child.
Which brings me to my next question....
Question #2: What exactly did you think you were accomplishing?
I'm gonna go ahead and assume the child didn't drive to the toy store, or have her own money.
Meaning it was the parents who were purchasing the toy.
So, you were obviously trying to lowkey school her parents via the child.
You need to work on your shade-throwing skills. I mean, what did you expect?
For them to be like, "Oh yes, you're right! Honey, put that n-word doll back!"
Question #3: So the hell what if a white child is playing with a black doll?
I'd love to hear you come up with some BS explanation about how it'll hurt her well-being.
And before you start on some, "Well, children should see representations of themselves in the toys they play with," let me remind you that young black children were forced to play with white dolls for decades... because there were no black dolls in toy stores.
But, I bet you were never concerned about any of that.
Question #4: How did it feel to get schooled by a two year-old?
Because, lemme tell you, you look stupid... and on the internet at that!
