LaShawn From Bébé’s Kids

When I tell you I can recite the entire Bébé’s Kids movie word for word, I am not playing. For instance, I can tell you that in the gif above LaShawn is saying “cute little girl but I fight like a man.” And that’s why I have to love her. What’s so great about Bébé’s Kids is that it informs people that just because children don’t come from a lot, act a fool in the streets and cause all types of chaos and confusion, it doesn’t mean they aren’t deserving of love and affection. In fact, they probably need more of it. (The movie also touches on the way in which minority children are targeted by authority figures just because they’re minorities. The realness.) What was so cool about LaShawn was that she was a softie but rough around the edges. If you’ve seen the movie, it’s so clear that she had a thang for lil Leon. Even though she’s a little different than Penny Proud, LaShawn was also designed by Bruce W. Smith. If you look closely, you’ll see it.
