That was my first REAL contact with the horrors of slavery as I read about her father being whipped and sold and her mother escaping with her to freedom but also how freedom was still a struggle A slave doll Please Read the books Clowns on social media “This thing looks kinda potentially maybe bad from just a few superficial details so I have decided that this thing is evil If you like it you are evil too” Meme
