Melissa Joan Hart makes tone deaf post highlighting her white heroes.



"The post of #MrRogers by @danicamckellar reminded me of one of my favorite #ShirleyTemple movies #TheLittleColonel because of the history of the #Stairdance she did with the incredible #BillyBojanglesRobinson. When studying the life of Shirley I learned that it was the first time an interracial couple danced on screen together. Bojangles wasn't allowed to hold her hand but Shirley grabbed his anyhow during the dance and it made history. She also gives him full credit for making her a better dancer, as did Gene Kelly. #spreadlove" - melissajoanhart's Instagram
