We’ve all heard of Betty Boop. But how many of you knew that she was based off of a BLACK woman.

Yes Betty Boop was based off of Ms.Esther Jones known by her stage name “Baby Esther”. She was an African-American singer and entertainer of the 1920’s. Her singing trademark was “Boop oop da doop” hence the name Betty Boop! She performed regularly at the cotton club in Harlem,New York.

No one is born a misogynist.  It is a culturally reinforced system of beliefs and behavior.  It can be changed.  It can be unlearned.  But we need to use every opportunity we are given to combat it.  No fight is too small OR too large.  Everything feeds into the larger problem.  Show up and push back.  It can be done.
