I'm that black girl, Ms. Bea Dixon and Target

Dear Ms. Bea Dixon,

I’m Gabby Goodwin, the inventor of GaBBY Bows, the first and patented Double-Face Double-Snap Barrette and the CEO of Confidence.

I just read the article about you receiving backlash from your Target commercial and I was hurt. What you said was not racist at all. You were just trying to empower black girls, AND it was Black History Month. There was no need for the backlash.

As a 13 year old girl whose products just started being sold on target.com and in some Target stores, I found your commercial very powerful and encouraging. Thank you so much for saying what you said!

I was invited to Target’s headquarters for the Black Owned Business Fair last week and to see your commercial there again, and the pictures of Mrs. Rochelle Graham of Alikay Naturals and Ms. Melissa Butler of Lip Bar really helped me see my dreams for my business are not too big.

And oh by the way, congratulations on doubling your sales behind the backlash! :)

Just keep pushing and know that you are already achieving your goal of empowering young black girls because I am one of them!

Find your Target store with GaBBY Bows or order online and leave a review.

    I was stunned to hear of the backlash against what I thought was a very inspiring commercial. I’m thrilled that there’s a concrete example in Miss Goodwin of how encouraging words can move young people to take chances and follow their dreams.

    I hope everyone success in all they do. No dream is to small for anyone. No matter who you are and where you come from. I think that was the message of the commerical. It’s hard to see that sometimes.

    Let all support each other. It begins with an act of kindness. Paying it forward!
