This image could be so good, but…

I’d like it more if it said ‘yourselves’ and had a multicultural picture. My first thought when I saw this was:

Erm, am I invited to the party? I see this white woman on her throne, atop a tower/pyramid of words, a broad smile on her face.

The way it is now, it’s undermining the potential of its own statement.
