This 2-year-old's favorite doll receives more attention that most.

Why? Because, at the end of the day, the little girl is white and her favorite doll is black.

According to the child's father in a post on the Love What Matters Facebook page, black and white people alike will approach the girl in awe of the love she has for the doll that is not the same race as her.

"'I wish this world showed unity and love like she does to that doll,'" is what people comment to the child, according to her father. "Her clueless 2-year-old mind usually will just reply back with 'her name is pretty.'"

This child is likely to be seen out in public with this doll, her father Tyler noted in the post. She chose the doll because she was pretty, and even named it that. It seems as though color isn't visible to this child; a pretty doll is a pretty doll, no matter its race.

"Ultimately she is holding nothing more than a doll, who so happens to be black," said Tyler. "But wouldn't it be awesome if we all looked at each other 'more' as ultimately...human."

It definitely would.
