"The truth is, you’re the weak, and I am the tyranny of evil men. But I’m trying, Ringo. I’m trying real hard to be the shepherd.” - Pulp Fiction (1994)
“Courage, sacrifice, determination, commitment, toughness, heart, talent, guts. That’s what little girls are made of; the heck with sugar and spice.”
WHY ARE THERE ONLY TWO GIRLS OF COLOR
There are three girls of color: Hushpuppy, Akeelah and Mako.
And there aren’t more girls of color because there is a disgusting lack of representation of girls of color in mainstream media. And I only wanted girls who were characters with their own arcs and personalities, not just steps for the white protagonist to grow (e.g. Rue). I actively tried to include diversity in this photoset, and I’m sorry I couldn’t do better. If you have more examples of well-rounded, well-written little girls of color in film, please let me know, I would love to check those movies out. :)
