Sophia Benner, from South Carolina, is two years old. When she grows up she wants to be a doctor. So when her mom, Brandi, recently took her shopping at Target for a potty graduation gift, it came as no surprise that Sophia chose a doctor doll.
What DID come as a surprise however was the cashier’s reaction to the doll she picked out. Why? Because the doll was black, something that Brandi and her daughter hadn’t thought much about until the cashier said to Sophia, “Are you sure this is the doll you want, honey?” When the little girl said yes, the cashier continued by saying “But she doesn’t look like you. We have lots of other dolls that look more like you.” Before Brandi could intervene however, Sophia shut down the cashier with the best response ever.
See the full conversation below, which Brandi posted on Instagram recently. It’s since been shared on Facebook, where it’s been liked by more than 450k people and shared over 180k times. Sophia might only be a toddler, but she’s clearly smarter than certain adults out there…
