I recieved an email from my Aunt this morning putting a call out to support Michelle Obama and her daughters. Seemed fitting to post here. If you were thinking of purchasing one of theses dolls please reconsider.
I’m sure you have all heard about the dolls that have been named Marvelous Malia and Sweet Sasha, and that Michelle Obama is not pleased. I agree with her. The doll company had no right to use the names of her daughters, and then lie about it and allege that the names had nothing to do with her daughters. I’m sure this is only the beginning of stunts that are going to be pulled, to get under her skin.
Since she is the First Lady, First Mother, and she looks like us…we should be supportive of her. Please do not buy any of the dolls made by this company, and advise all of your friends that the Ty Girlz Collection of the Beanie Babies Company has disrespected the “first daughters”, and chooses to ignore Michelle Obamas request that they take the dolls off the market.
We have been given an opportunity to show the world that Black Women can stand together and be supportive of each other. An insult to Michelle or her children, is an insult to us ALL! We supported Barack , now let’s rally around “the love of his life” for the next eight years. She is out there charting unfamiliar territory and can use our support. She went into the White House through the front door, without a rag on her head, or a broom in her hand. She is not there to entertain anyone….she lives there. Let Beanie Babies, and anyone else who decides to mess with our First Lady, know that Michelle Obama has a sisterhood that has her back.
Thanks for reading! I would love to know your thoughts on the dolls. Do you think the company has a right to make the dolls. Does the First Lady have a right to demand a halt in production? What would you do?
