  • One Halloween, a little Black girl was trick-or-treating around the neighborhood
  • She was disguised as a superhero but with a white face. I asked her why.
  • Why do you paint your face in white ?
  • My sister told me that there was no such thing as a Black superhero
  • I walked home and put on the television. The little girl was right.
  • Everyone was White: Superman, Santa Claus, Miss America.
  • The president and his house were White. Tarzan, king of African jungle, was White too.
  • Nothing good reflected our image.
  • I was really confused because the little girl was so true.
