The Doll Test
This self hate thing is DEEP
this makes me mad
This is a compilation of doll tests featuring children of many races.
This is so fucking important
As telling as this is uh okay KIDS ARE TAUGHT THESE THINGS BY ADULTS. I would not call this “SELF HATE” I would call this parents teaching their kids shit that they shouldn’t or media corrupting children. These kids are old enough to already have been influenced by friends/adults/parents/media. My sister (white girl) had a black baby doll that she carried around ALL the time. She loved that doll. My mother HATED it. Now my sister as a kid was taught bad things because of my mother who was a racist. It works both ways. Had my little sister not been yelled at for wanting to play with a black doll I doubt she ever would have cared. This is not “SO FUCKING IMPORTANT” nor is it self hate. It’s kids who have already been influenced by society/people. Trust me on this. All this is showing is how awful this society is that it’s TEACHING kids to hate themselves. This hate isn’t IN THEM ALREADY it’s TAUGHT.
I have a problem with the wording of the questions, asking “which one is the ugly child” implies that one of them is ugly, so the kid would feel inclined to choose one. Perhaps they should of first asked “Are any of these children ugly?” or something similar, and then I don’t think the answers would be the same.
