Welcome To The Bitchery

Children Know.

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.
