Diamonds and Gents poor Eudoxie.  She went back to her country bearing gifts and all the dolls she had were white.  Instagram really fired shots.  Telling her to give them dolls that look like them to empower them.  Others said color doesn't matter she is doing something nice.

Well, with the thing of race and color you would think that was only in America.  But, a young women from London(On Exdoxie photo on Instagram) said how hard it was to really portray a positive image of black to her daughter. On the wake of Dark Girls airing on OWN television network check your local listings.  I really seen the commercial and didn't think this type of stuff still exist far is dark skin and light skin.

Now, that would be a true Southern wedding wouldn't it? But we can't do that because the media would be on me about that."

When Paula Deen was asked about this she responded, "The whole entire waiter staff was middle-age…
