The Colors of Ms. Wose















When I asked her why the two pictures, she said, "This one is with your skin....

and this one is you with my skin."

Are you jaundiced?

Übermilf said...

I'm worried about your liver.

Egan said...

You're a size 0 aren't you? I knew it. I'm in love with your pony.

Sysm said...

Was the assignment, First Grade: Extreme Makeover?

You're Asian! Not African-American. Don't these kids read your blog?

Bill said...

I think that's a very neat idea. An interesting approach to cultural diversity. :-)

Flounder said...

I love Ms Wose as a sistah!

Miss Browneyedgirlie said...

What a sweetheart.

Love the glimpse into your classroom - makes me all that much more anxious (if that's even possible!) to have one of my own.

Aren't you glad you don't have any of those fuckin' albinos in your class?

ChickyBabe said...

This is sweet. I'm not going to make fun of it.

jiggs said...

The united colors of brookie.

Hypersonic said...

That is so cool. You're very lucky Ms. Wose.

matty said...

I can't decide what this might mean psychologically for the child, but I can't help but think it touching.

Kris said...

I LOVE THIS! :)

Thérèse said...

AWWW!

God that is so effing cute.

amera hearts said...

that was very sweet.

Toby said...

Just as long as she isn't killing small animals for a hobby it's cute.

miss kendra said...

i think it's adorable.

but i hope you gave her her skin back when you were done.

NotCarrie said...

That's so cute!

Brookelina said...

All of you making fun of a seven year old's drawing - shame on you!! The rest of you - thank you - how cute is that!

thephoenixnyc said...

Adorable, ask her to draw what you would look like with the Creature from the Black Lagoon's skin.

Monkey said...

You brought another tear to my eye! Damn you.

I love these. You are quite beautiful, in every color.

Mone said...

That is sooo sweet!!!

Tits McGee said...

That. Just. Broke. My. Heart.

I love you, Ms. Wose!!!

yournamehere said...

I like my women like my milkshakes: Thick and chocolate.

jungle jane said...

Do you have really bad wrinkles, or is that just the crayon??

G3T Films said...

That IS really sweet. This kid obviously loves you, enough to imagine you as trans-culture. I particularly like the fact that pink hair is not related to 'ethnicity' where you come from. Here, we always associate it with Eskimo bankers.

MoDigli said...

You look good ANY color! :)

Bill said...

I'm not making fun ... I think that's a very cool approach to portraits. btw ... I quit my job today! Hee hee hee ... So I like everything.

Übermilf said...

I want to be put in the hospital and removed from society.

Loz said...

from the mouths and crayons of babes, yes? i think it's lovely.

BV said...

You are very stylish with your up high pony tail. Doesn't that hurt your head?

I got in trouble in pre-school for telling people they were chocolate or vanilla flavored b/c of their skin. I have emotional scars from that experience. I like chocolate better, so what the hell did they know.

Melliferous Pants said...

I love this.
