Mattel, Inc.: Make the next American Girl "Girl of the Year" an African-American girl.
It is important because since American Girl started making a "Girl of the Year," there has not been an African-American doll in this role. It is important that all girls feel special, and not having an African-American "Girl of the Year" for so many years in a row could make African-American girls feel badly about themselves and the American Girl company. In addition, as a Caucasian-American girl myself, I think it is important to learn about the lives of girls from different ethnic and racial backgrounds so that we can understand other people and realize our similarities outweigh our differences.
