If ever there was a company that didn't need to hire a Black model it's Sanrio. I know I'm stuck on this, but I am SUPER excited about this Hello Kitty Kouture (MAC). And then I was looking at the ads, and I was even more juiced that the new image of Hello Kitty is Black. And not just a black cat, a Black woman! (and she lightweight looks like me, vanity at its finest). I don't know how this is a step forward for Black people, and I'm sure it had more to do with MAC Cosmetics than Sanrio, but this makes me proud to rock the Kitty.
