Word? So Cinderella was black?

Based on my quick research here’s what I learned. Her name was Rhodopis (pronounced ra-do-pes), and she was born in Greece, sold into slavery, and ended up in Egypt. The other slave girls taunted her because of her curly hair, green eyes, and pale skin that easily burned in the sun. Rhodopis is the earliest variation of the “Cinderella” story recorded by Strabo, a Greek historian, in the 1st century BC, but origins of the story can be traced to 6th century BC. The shoes are debated as “fur” (from Snapple) and “rose-gold” (from various websites) slippers.
