I found this on a Facebook page meant to celebrate interracial dating. At first I couldn't articulate why it didn't make me smile. I really wanted it to since obviously I agree that lots and lots of mixed babies are ridiculously cute. Then it hit me after reading about #PrettyPeriod, Dr. Yaba Blay's brilliant new project celebrating the beauty of dark-skin, without qualifying it, e.g. "she's pretty for a dark-skinned girl."And that's it. In the same vein, we perfect mixes shouldn't qualify our "beautiful" either, even in jest. It's just kind of dumb. I mean come on, don't we get enough exotic creature treatment without doing it to ourselves?
