Most of my future children tag is cute brown children being fabulous and clearly belonging to me in spirit, but I’m making an exception for this tweet because if I don’t raise my kids to give that exact same response, then I have failed as a parent.
Who is this woman and can I send her a thank-you gift basket and a Black Parenting Award?  This is why it is imperative that we teach our children real history outside of textbooks constructed by, written for, and approved by white men whose re-telling of history conveniently glosses over atrocities and minimizes suffering.

Howard University student reading, 1946. LIFE photo by Alfred Eisenstaedt.
Howard was proud to be “America’s center of Negro learning” (LIFE, November 18, 1946). However, it was not an exclusively “negro” establishment, and although these photographs display an attractive, positive and sincere representation of African-Americans engaged in academic life, they are still, for the time and readership of LIFE, “comfortably segregated.”
