You know guys, the more you get uppity about this crap the more it will continue. If you teach a young kid to get offended, they will get offended because you gave them a reason to be. If you pass it off as nothing special, the child will adopt that behavior too.

So basically, chill.

I wanted a monkey when I was a kid. Does that make me racist? Oh, but a white monkey.

I don't find this wrong, it is directed towards children anyway.

I bet theres a white one and either a hispanic or asian one too. ever notice in doll commercials friend groups have 3 girls, a black one a white one then another girl who is either hispanic, asian, or white but with a different hair color than the other white girl, and they all match their doll.

It's not even racially insensitive. They made the same toy of a white baby also, but the only one people focus on is this one. It's ridiculous...

I did the same as Drones in my Sociology class.
And this toy was on Cracked as a recalled toy.

"It's a black baby with the words lil' monkey across her head. "

And we also call our children "rascals" "rapscallions" "rugrats" "spawn" "parasites" "dirty little pussy demons"

The list goes ON and ON...

"if the baby was white, no one would complain"

Last time I checked, it was not the most insulting thing in the world to call a white person a "Monkey" but it is, in fact, the most insulting thing to call a black person. Use a little common sense.

Try the standard that imbored454 suggests. Would you say it to the face of a big black guy walking down the street? If not, then it is racist.

Doesn't surprise me that much. In Sociology class we had to write a paper on toys and we had to go to the toy aisle and make notes on various thing we saw. It's amazing what's on the packaging or the toy itself when you stand and analyze it.

There was probably a white baby doll too, so they made a dark-skinned one as well.

I hate people who cry racist without even thinking about it.
