Another “let’s point out the racism” type of post has surfaced the internet once again. Although the original was posted in August of this year, it’s recently grown increasingly more popular and is worth exploring.
Candyce Anthony, who is an African American woman herself, shared the following on Facebook:
My friend from Texas is going to school to be a nurse and posted this on her snap story today. She was so mad while I couldn’t stop laughing
She then proceeded to post a photo of two baby dolls; one was white, while the other was black. Both of these are assumed to be dolls used for and during Karis Scherer’s (the friend) nurse schooling. The white doll has sort of generic but typical features you might see on a white child. The black doll has an accurate skin tone, but the issue came when examining the lips and comparing the two to each other.
The black doll has bigger lips and a bigger forehead. This was enough to make this nurse student “pissed”. Candyce didn’t seem all that affected by it and even expressed how funny and ridiculous her friend was for being so angry over this. Other people on Facebook, however, particularly the liberal crowd, seemed a bit more offended by the photograph.
