Obama Girls

The President, while he was still a candidate, reflected that his daughters' presence in the White House would redefine the way the world looks at little Black children, and who they can be. Notice how deeply Malia's dad is listening to what she's saying. Observe Sasha's comfort and glee as she runs through the corridors of power. Note the sweet Black girl hairstyles and the soft flyaway fuzz that Black girls everywhere remember from their own childhood days of travel or play. It makes me ridiculously happy that the two most privileged children on the planet are now these two little girls, the lovely, unspoiled, brilliant and protected Malia and Sasha Obama.
