Una muñeca como yo
Este post es muy importante para mi, porque es sobre algo que deseaba tener cuando era pequeña. Una muñeca que fuera como yo, con el pelo rizado y la piel oscura. Recuerdo como todas mis amigas jugaban con muñecas que se parecian a ellas, o por lo menos tenían su pelo liso, y la piel blanca. No entendía muy bien porque. Si había niñas negras como yo, porque nadie se molestaba en hacer una muñeca negra como ellas. ¿quizás fuera porque pensaban que las niñas como yo, no eran bonitas, o especiales? O tal vez pensaban que nadie compraría una muñeca negra. Fuera por el motivo que fuera yo nunca tuve una muñeca como yo. Con mi precioso pelo rizado, mi piel de ebano, mis labios gorditos , mis sonrientes ojos negros, mis perfectos dientes de marfil. ¿como puede dudar alquien de que soy especial? Y las miles de niñas como yo, que me sonrien a travéss de sus preciosos ojos.
A doll like me
This post is very important to me, because it’s about something I wanted to have when I was little. A doll that was like me, with curly hair and dark skin. I remember how all my friends played with dolls that looked like them, or at least had their straight hair and white skin. I didn’t understand why, if there were black little girls like me, why no one bothered to make a black doll like them. Perhaps it was because they thought that girls like me were not pretty, or special? Or maybe they thought nobody would buy a black doll. For whatever reason I never had a doll like me. With my beautiful curly hair, my ebony skin, plump my lips, my smiling black eyes, my perfect ivory teeth. How can someone doubt that I special? And the thousands of girls like me, who smile at me Through theirs beautiful eyes.

I love the black barbies. I’m also a collector
Thank you for the comment. I love that you can have a black barbie. I wanted one when i was a child.
Yes, I was able to have them as a child. But although they were black they all had straight hair and just looked like a dark version of the white barbie. It wasn’t until I grew much older that I was able to find authentically black looking barbies.
That is nice. I think , things they a changing , little by little. The concept of the beauty to.
I had a cute little dark-skinned, curly-haired black doll as a child that wasn’t a barbie, or at all vaguely glamorous for that matter, but much-loved. My godmother got it for me, God knows where from…, there weren’t many around in those days. The one with the authentic-looking afro is super-cute!
Wow,Is wonderful , that you had black doll back then. I think that make your godmother a very special person.
Thanks for follow me and for the comment.
