I just have a "thing" against white dollies. I refuse to buy them. I try to buy her mainly A-A dolls, but there aren't that many available. For her past birthday, I settled for a Dora doll...at least it was hispanic.
Growing up, there weren't a lot of black dolls around, and so I wound up with a lot of blonde-haired, blue eyes ones. So I guess that's part of the reason why I want my daughter to have lots of different black dolls.
Do you think I'm wrong for how I feel? I'm not ashamed of her white heritage (I wasn't raised to be racist towards anyone).

Would it make me a bigot if I refused to buy my biracial child a black doll? Yep. Why would it be any different for you refusing to buy a white doll? We are a white family and my kids have dolls that are all colors.
