Do you really think such a large company would knowingly put these on their shelves to be racist?

  • No they also had white and Hispanic babies with the monkey phrase on them. They also have all three races with Panda bears which are still on shelves.

    It may have offended some but It was not their intentions.

  • Thanks Crissy. When this news first came out, the article I read didn't mention the DIVERSE group of dolls. Originally I thought it was in poor taste.. Now, I change my view... No, I do not hink this was meant to be racist.
