I believe it was made by a VNN poster named jOsh in Kentucky.
That “black” doll at Walmart is more like a quadroon or Afro-mestizo, way too light with Caucasian facial features.
The cartoon refers to tests given to children to supposedly show Eurocentric bias and psychological damage from segregation and racism, one of the most significant being Kenneth and Mamie Clark’s experiments which contributed to Brown v. Board of Education ruling against segregation. There have been followup tests which still give similar results despite integration. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WG7U1QsUd1g
Of course they never take into account natural preference for lighter-skinned females in all races. It’s engineered to prove their agenda.
I would guess that most white people – and most black people – would consider this story ridiculous. I really do not believe that the majority of black people would consider this “racist” – so who made this a story, and why?
From the article, we have these people being quoted:
1. Thelma Dye, the executive director of the Northside Center for Child Development, a Harlem, N.Y. organization founded by pioneering psychologists and segregation researchers Kenneth B. Clark and Marnie Phipps Clark.
2. Lisa Wade, an assistant sociology professor at Occidental College in Los Angeles and the founder of the blog Sociological Images.
3. Harvard University professor William Julius Wilson
4. Gwen Sharp, a sociology professor at Nevada State College
You know, if I was an anti-racist liberal, I could probably come up with all sorts of racism that would be a lot more compelling than this. The fact that they have to make up rather silly shit about black Barbie dolls priced lower than white Barbie dolls must mean something, but damned if I know.
I guess they need to justify that grant money someway. But has anyone actually considered that this may make the anti-racist cause look rather ridiculous?
Nice work if you can get it, I guess.
Clearly when regular peanut butter stays the same in price, but the lowfat peanut butter is marked for clearance due to lagging sales, we can conclude that there is a conspiracy (probably created inherently cruel whites) to deprive fat people of their right to lose weight.
