Mattel, Inc Takes Steps Towards Undoing Harmful Racist Critisim towards #Zendaya Locks

HT_Zendaya_Barbie_Doll_MEM_150928_12x5_1600

In case you missed the Oscar red-carpet rant by Fashion Police host,  Giuliana Rancic  as she described 19-year-old star Zendaya Coleman as “looking like she smelled like patchouli oil and weed.”   Social media blew up and the community was of course outraged, and rightfully so.

Well, im always happy to see corporations step-up and try to mitigate situations by bringing solidarity and purpose to damaging situations.  I completely believe in “corporate responsibility.”

Last Friday, Mattel, Inc. the maker of Barbie announced their debut of the beautiful Zendaya limited edition doll in her Oscar image.

Way to go Mattel, This is a step in the right direction for little brown girls all around the world.  What better way to empower young girls to truly know the power of their own voice!
