The black, brown, and white showcasing the diversity of the human race. Further proving that the color of your skin is simply a shade of the rainbow.
This one set showcases everyone. It gives off the notion that everyone is the same. By using the LGBTQ+ colors to express that there is no shortage of pride.
Not to mention the overt representation.
The Mini Figures Showcase Diversity
The yellow figures we’re used to have always been inclusive.
The reason that mini figures are yellow is so that they represent everyone. Lego has never shied away from saying so. The yellow stands as a variation of every skin tone.
These figure show people every shade of the rainbow. Literally.
Every figure has a unique and individual look. From signature curls to showcasing flamboyance. These figures each stand for different identities in the human race.
There is one figure represented proudly.
The purple figure showcases a one of a kind beehive hairdo. In the purple section of the rainbow, this figure represents the fabulous drag-queens.
As an homage to individuality, these figures proudly support their differences. In our constantly changing world this is the type of representation that we need.
