Why does the darker doll cost less?
April 18, 2013 at 2:01 am
My kids are mixed so I get to buy all the pretty black and white Barbies. They don't even have mixed Barbies. When I was little my mom used to get me this Hawaiian Barbie named Kira. WHERE'S MY KIRA DOLLS? That's what I want to know! :P

Most of these comments are unreal! The doll was marked at a lower price BECAUSE they had more in stock then the other and wanted to make room for new items...I don't believe there was any "hidden message" here. Maybe they should make all Barbies pink so as not to offend ANYONE! Wtf is wrong with this world!

I think its funny. some people just over analyze things...

The black one is on because the white ones sale more, thus the Cisco one is just taking up shelf space so they are trying to get rid of them. I'm sure the store didn't decide to price it lower just because...that would be retarded!

Finally. Someone intelligent. That is exactly what causes the red mark-downs. Overstock.

They make white people pay more for a Barbie!
November 16, 2012 at 2:08 am
Your comment makes no sense!!!! so what are you saying is white people ONLY buy white Barbies???? If my African American daughter wanted a white doll i would have no problem at all paying for it even if it cost more.

I am sorry but I actually find this funny... dark humor!
March 24, 2012 at 3:12 am
I'm glad you find it funny, but to me it isn't, but I'm glad that you can laugh at somehing that can effect the psych of a black child.

Bren Langdon and yet I still find it funny...

Bren Langdon Little kids that play with that aren't gonna give a fuck at that age; they'll be HAPPY it's cheaper hhah
December 30, 2012 at 8:14 am
Bren Langdon Oh please.. Don't be so touchy. Red mark downs occur when there is too much of one product and they stop restocking this item, causing a drop in price to get rid of stock. Its not a race thing. Untangle the panties. :)

Another reason why I'm beginning to shop less and less at Walmart! I can't explain ignorance, I just cant! Smh =/

This is a message to children of color...
May 12, 2012 at 1:41 am
That is aproblem with me because I am mixed so I just think that they sould be priced for the same amount.

CAUSE THE VALUE OF WHITES IS STILL HIGHER IN THIS COUNTRY THAN IT IS FOR BLACKS AND MINORITIES....THIS IS CALL SUBTLE RACISM...SMH
June 27, 2012 at 6:20 pm
AND THAT IS OK...ITS WHAT/WHO YOU IDENTIFY WITH...THE POINT IS THAT BLACKS ARE STILL DEVALUED IN AMERICAN SOCIETY....IM NOT INTERESTED IN DUMPING ON ONE RACE IN ORDER TO MAKE MY OWN LOOK/FEEL BETTER BUT THIS IS THE PRACTICE OF CAUCASIANS AND THIS BARBIE ISSUE PROVES JUST THAT! ENJOY UR DAY:)
June 28, 2012 at 4:54 pm
history proves just as science does that it is in the nature of the recessive genned human to oppress that which they fear, and because it is also proven that it is in the nature of the recessive genned human to fear the dominant genned human we are in a society that ensures the recessive Caucasian race is always in control of the Dominant African race because their number one FEAR is to live in a world where the dominant African race has the ability to do unto the Caucasians as they have done unto us. The difference is it is NOT in the Nature of the Original African Human to conquer and oppress and eliminate another ethinicity. Africans have the most dominant genes so we were exposed to all different phenotypes within Africa before the recessive Caucasian presented themselves and we didtn Fear the White Man, They Feared us. We were also not the first ethnicity used for Slavery. We, as Dominant Africans, were in fact the ONLY race of people that was and is able to withstand the brutality of slavery and Build a nation under inhumane conditions. Because we are Dominant and white people are Recessive. We are more fertile that whites and produce and a Much higher rate that whites, in fact, white Europeans (and white americans) have actually stopped reproducing, which is another reason they are pushing interracial dating in the media, because they need our genetics and our melanin. Do the research people and know what type of Devil you are dealing with. peace.

How do we not know that the black doll just happened to be defective but the white ones aren't (yes, some store do sell defective things)? There are more dolls to the left of those dolls, how do you know those aren't black and are worth just as much as the white ones there? Oh, and btw, you're only devalued if you allow yourself to be...js
December 30, 2012 at 8:18 am
RacheltheBookof GenesistheBeginning McAlister Um. This actually proves nothing about "caucasian practices." red mark down happens when there is an overstock of an item. People simply were not buying the black doll enough so the store halts stocking them until demand increases, then the price goes back to that of the in demand doll. Color has nothing to do with it. Its pure finance. Don't try to create issues where none exist.

Chastity Unique Smith-you should read your history books more clearly, like the Bible.
Blacks enslaved the Jews and the Gentiles for thousands of years, whom do you think built the pyramids. Its a SOB to see history repeat itself isn't it, whites only enslaved blacks for hundreds of years, not thousands. Im sure the whites and Jews will be enslaved to blacks again and that makes you smile don't it RACIST????????????????????
