WTF?


I READ THIS COMMENT ON A COMMERCIAL BLOG TODAY ABOUT THE DEBUT OF A NEW BLACK BARBIE....


"The arrogance of white people never ceases to amaze me. Are you stupid or do you just not get that you DO NOT have a say so in what WE, African Americans, can call ourselves. You don't own us, you really don't give a sh*t about us, just here slummin' on a black blog. Mind your own business. Bet your silly ass would NOT stand toe to toe with any African Ameican and spew that sh*t."


wtf? is the ignorant one the doll maker, the sorority or the commenter... you decide.... i just noticed their wonderful spelling in their comment too... (Ameican...)

I would venture it was the sorority in her that inspired such vapid commentary.

Hmmm...

Glenn Beck is making me rabid today. I want to pop his fucking head... jack up an 18-wheeler, stick his asshole melon under the wheels, and kick out the jack.

In case you cared.

Well, the Barbie doll is certainly pretty in pink. She almost looks hispanic to me though. Anyway, I'm glad you are back. Sorry I've not been around lately. Had problems of my own to deal with.

SHE, glenn beck, isnt he a comedian of the political nature?

cecile, thanks for checking in and it does feel good to be back! sorry to hear about you having problems... many good thoughts to you!

Glenn Beck is a conservative douche bag. He'd be funnier at the bottom of a lake with an anchor chain tied around his neck.

Maybe I'm too far left of center to appreciate the finer points of rampant fundamentalist dogma.

I'm worked up.

Eh? (The Canadian spelling)

Don't have time to try to figure out just what you are saying but I don't give a crap if they make a black Barbie or black anything else.

Very few blacks (or whatever they want to be called these days) around here but back in the 60's I hung out with a group of them in Ogden, Utah and enjoyed them more than many whites.

White, black, it's all a bunch of bullshit, there are trash blacks and there are trash whites. Hang out with those you want to hang out with. I'm color blind that way.

In any case, she's kinda hot; I'd do her.

Ignorance is bliss........
the commentor def has a few issues and sounds a real bundle of fun .
Has it taken them this long to produce a Barbie of colour or is it just a new addition ?

No, black barbies have been around since my childhood. I had an awesome one with a neon orange and gold bikini. Rock on black barbie! Now as an aside, I must say I've always been irritated by the term "African American"--in reality, this would also include all Americans of Egyptian extraction (ya know, like Egypt is on the African continent!!!!!) and leave out all black folk not from Africa!!!

Just my two cents.
