This is why I’m committed to only buying fabrics which show Black kids and kids of color anytime there are white kids shown. So often I’m searching for a fabric which shows astronauts or ballerinas or mermaids or whatever else and every single face is white. Those are not the fabrics I buy. I want my kid to see himself as a potential astronaut, and I need white kids to see that potential as well. Actually, astronaut is a bad example, I’d be much too anxious for that, but you get the point. #representationmatters
