Today, my child said, "Mommy, why are all the people on television pink? Where are the brown people? There are lots of brown people at my school. Why don't I see them on tv?"

She actually asked me this. The frustration and anger I feel at her very smart, very observant comment ... I just ... there aren't enough words to make things right. More action is needed.

My child is "pink." How must the children who are brown feel?

Damn it.
