2-Year-Old Girl Puts Target Cashier In Her Place for Questioning Why She Chose a Black Doll Baby

This is a perfect story for our current days and times. A mother by the name of Brandi Benner was rewarding her 2-year-old daughter, Sophia, for learning how to potty train by buying her a doll at her local Target. Brandi’s daughter carefully chose a baby doll, brought it to the cashier and that’s when things went left. The Target employee questioned Sophia as to why she chose a black baby doll. Check out Sophia’s amazing response below…

Nick and I told Sophia that after 1 whole month of going poop on the potty, she could pick out a special prize at Target. She, of course, picked a new doll. The obsession is real. While we were checking out, the cashier asked Sophia if she was going to a birthday party. We both gave her a blank stare. She then pointed to the doll and asked Sophia if she picked her out for a friend. Sophia continued to stare blankly and I let the cashier know that she was a prize for Sophia being fully potty trained. The woman gave me a puzzled look and turned to Sophia and asked, “Are you sure this is the doll you want, honey?” Sophia finally found her voice and said, “Yes, please!” The cashier replied, “But she doesn’t look like you. We have lots of other dolls that look more like you.” I immediately became angry, but before I could say anything, Sophia responded with, “Yes, she does. She’s a doctor like I’m a doctor. And I’m a pretty girl and she’s a pretty girl. See her pretty hair? And see her stethoscope?” Thankfully the cashier decided to drop the issue and just answer, “Oh, that’s nice.” This experience just confirmed my belief that we aren’t born with the idea that color matters. Skin comes in different colors just like hair and eyes and every shade is beautiful. #itswhatsontheinsidethatcounts #allskinisbeautiful #teachlove #teachdiversity #thenextgenerationiswatching

Out of the mouths of babes! The nerve of that cashier to even ask that question?! She would’ve never asked that question if it was a black child with a white baby. It goes to show that children have no idea what racism is until they are taught and that 2-year-old Sophia is light years ahead of that cashier in terms of intelligence. We have to give props to her mother Brandi Benner for the way she is raising her child! If the world was filled with more Brandi and Sophia’s and less people who think like that ignorant ass Target cashier, the world would be a much better place! What do YOU think about this story?
