This was posted on facebook by Blair Underwood and he asked us to share.
The thing about this photo is an example of the only attitude people should have about other people.
I know I post conflicting stuff. But that is what is out there, and that is what each of us has to process on his own.
You cannot tell by looking at this photo of a child what might be her racial, genetic, cultural, or national identity. Only that she is beautiful and very very cute. Her face probably has universal appeal.
So where do all our prejudices and misconceptions start to muck up the picture? Education and the media are obviously not saying the right things. Things like what this photo shows us, besides a pretty face.
