    Link: Why You So Racist, Wal-Mart? - Hmm, there are some very strange price points afoot at the local Wal-Mart. We call racism.

    "But Mommy, I want the white one!"

    "Shut up you little brat. The black one`s cheaper."

    "But I don`t like black people! They caused the depression!"

    "Listen you little f*cker, Mommy needs her daily pack of cigarettes and she can`t afford them if she f*cking spoils you all the time."

    "But-"

    "Look, if you don`t wanna sleep outside the trailer tonight, go harass that <n-word> over there."

    It could equally be a sign that Wal-Mart is *not* racist -- Wall-Mart incorrectly anticipated that the black doll would be wildly popular and so ordered more than it could sell.

    I just want to point out how serious it is to call someone/thing racist, actually it is as serious as calling someone a thief.
    so be careful when you use the R-word, dont throw it out for nothing.
    im truly sick and tired of oversensitive people. cant we all just be friends now.
    like, if i end up in a argument with a black guy after some time he might call me a racist and `whoop my ass`, there should be a word for people that throw out the r-word without even thinking about how serious it is.

    There is actually a reason for this.

    Because of media influence, black children prefer white dolls. There actually was a study done about it. I don`t remember the link to the study, but I learned about it in one of my anthropology classes.

    So, walmart isn`t being racist, dark skinned barbie dolls just don`t sell as well as the white skinned ones.

    Now since I have a somewhat relevant story I want IAB to weigh in.

    I`m a student nurse, and today I was regaling my fellow students and instructor with the story of that black guy who`s face wasn`t recognized by the camera posted on IAB a while back. There was a black nurse in the room, and what I exactly said was, "It wouldn`t recognize the black guys face, he was quite dark." and my instructor gave me the quiet down sort of motion with the shifty eyes in the black lady`s direction. then afterwords she told me to be careful.

    Was anything I did offensive? I don`t think so. I was once told by an instructor that we shouldn`t recognize race, but as this demonstrates sometimes it`s relevant. Just like, with a Black person I might suspect diseases that are more common to their race, or any race for that matter. What do you guys think?

    I don`t know any black people who want to be called African American. What would that make my black husband who is native from the Bahamas? An African Bahamian American? that`s stupid.

    If there are people who want to be called African American, more power to them, but black is not a derogatory term any more then white is.

    What? Seriously? Ignoring that it exists is better? I think ignoring that race exists is stupid Ie. we are all the same blah blah. Well, no we`re not, I am pale and have blue eyes and of hairy german decent. You probably aren`t. But we should talk about race in the context of whether or not prejudice ok, which it generally isn`t.

    I`m assuming that the white Barbies were selling more than the black Barbies, which is why they put the black Barbies on sale. (Seeing as how they`re exactly the same, except for the skin, outfit, and hair colors.) That would make the consumers at Wal*Mart racist, not Wal*Mart. :P

    IDK how it is in your areas but around here, the only ppl makin a big deal outta racism is the white people. And I mean african-american racism. My black friends and their family and black friends dont give a hell that walmart sells black barbies cheaper (Its happen at my walmart). Racism exists but its not gonna go away just cuz your against it.

    theres still ppl from slavery days who miss those days and raised their families to be like that... and then lets not forget all the rednecks. Not the rebels but the rednecks that every other word is the N word, even if comparing a drink to another drink.

    MzThikG: Slavery ended in 1865. There is currently one woman collecting a Civil War pension because when she was 16, she married a 92-year-old Civil War vet. This happened in the 1930`s. There is nobody alive from slavery days.
