Rapper Ludacris’ girlfriend, Eudoxie, published a controversial picture on Instagram of a charitable act: gifting dolls to children in need. The problem? The children are African and the dolls are all white.
With all the articles, books and studies about how children are affected by dolls that don’t reflect their appearance, many feel Eudoxie should’ve known better than to give white dolls to children in Gabon. Commenters said as much on her Instagram page, and Eudoxie did not mince her words in her response to them:
Does she have a point? Is it valid to criticize the race of the dolls she gifts to African children?
