CLEARLY DEMONSTRATES THAT WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO...

THIS PHOTO SAYS IT ALL I SUPPOSE.

THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN AT A LOUISIANA WALMART AND DISPLAYS THE BLATANT PRICE DISCREPANCIES BETWEEN THE CAUCASIAN BARBIE AND THE ETHNIC BARBIE. I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT THE CONNOTATIONS THAT GO WITH THIS DIFFERENCE ARE OBVIOUS AND DANGEROUS. ARE THE ETHNIC DOLLS BEING SOLD TO DEVALUE THEM OR BECAUSE THOSE CUSTOMERS WHO WOULD BUY THAT DOLL ARE GENRALLY OF A LOWER ECONOMIC STATUS? YOUR THOUGHTS? (P.S. shame on you walmart)
