Thanks to the magic of the intertubes, I’ve unearthed this vintage video of Uppity’s First Rant! You’d best not mess with this pint-sized pundit….. Get ready to rock and rumble with the Preschool Uppity!
A Classic Uppity rant! But you know, before I even saw Rantin’ Riley, I’ve also secretly wondered if maybe our Uppity in real-life was this Uppity lady, Sarah Haskins — Target Women:
**Okay, so we’ll never really know the true identity of the famous blogger, Uppity Woman. But I won’t get discouraged, Lil’ Riley and Sarah Haskins give me hope for the future. Hope that some day, we will stop allowing ourselves to be manipulated by Madison Avenue. Or that, there will come a time that we give up the stampeding and hurting each other just to buy the latest sneakers that some ad company said weMUSThave. Could the age of the sheeple become a distant memory? It will when the “Rileys” of the world stand up, like Gary Larsen’s famous cartoon and declare:
Wait! Wait! We don’t have to be just sheep!
Maybe Riley and her friends won’t fall for the Hype of a political machine, and will instead, research and choose the best and most qualified candidates. I would like to think that by the time Riley is a young adult, the idea that women’s rights are human rights will not be novel. And maybe, just maybe, Riley’s generation will finally elect the first woman President of the United States!
Even though the coming New Year, 2012 has been shrouded in the doomsday predictions of the Mayans…..I’d like to have a more optimistic view, not Mayan, but “Maya’s” if you will…… An Uppity New Year to All…..and especially to the young Rileys of the world!
Rise Riley, Rise!
