In a time when even the President of the United States is finding it necessary to speak up about racism, sometimes you just want to go take your daughter to a disney princess event. That’s exactly what Rachel Muir was doing with her daughter Samara in Melbourne when another mother outside the event told her two children that “I don’t know what that girl is getting excited for, Anna and Elsa aren’t black.”
On her facebook page she originally detailed the event. “My daughter was in tears when we were at watergardens for the frozen activities as a mother & her 2 daughters told my daughter don’t know why you dressed up for coz Anna & Elisa aren’t Black & Black is ugly & your Black. Not nice.. Still Racism is alive & well in the next generation”
The event had left its mark and days afterwards Samara refused to go to her aboriginal dance class. When asked by her mum why she didn’t want to go Samara responded that it was “because I’m black.”
The original Facebook post went viral and messages of support flowed in. While this story does end with the lynching of a women and her children for being racist, it does end with as much love and support as possible for Samara and her mum.
I think we can all agree that Queen Samara is absolutely gorgeous.
