She wanted an African-American doll

What's the difference between an African-American doll and an African-African doll? Aren't they all Asian anyway?

This is why boys toys are inherently better than girls toys.

Nobody gives a rat's ass what race GI Joes are. Or what race the Turtles are. Or the Transformers. Why? Because race don't matter when you fire the spring loaded rocket at a stack of cups to destroy evil.

It's been a long, long time since I played with GI Joe, but wasn't there at least one black one? And didn't some of the Transformers on the cartoon have quite, um, "ethnic" accents? I know they did in the recent movie, but I'm not counting that.

Yeah they did, but that's because they were specific characters who happened to be black. It's not like there was white Joe and black Joe (at least past the 60's) As far as I know, nobody bought them to build a self image, or made a big deal about any price difference. Boys played with them because they were freaking awesome.

Just make the black one be 60% of the price of the white one....
 
2010-12-15 12:01:34 PM  
As mentioned in the article - it's called supply and demand. If there's demand for a low stock item, the price goes up!

Exactly. The voice is a pun on his name. Jazz should sound, well, like someone who sings Jazz. Same with the Hydrofoil should sound, well, like he's in the water.
Starscream should sound like he speaks with a scream.

The black doll was more expensive on Amazon because it was a higher-demand item.

CSB time:

My wife gives me a hard time about it to this day, but I bought two of the three wheelchair Becky dolls several years back with the intention of turning them into RC jousting machines.

I was never able to get the third, Special Olympics Basketball Becky, because I was bidding against a woman who's username was basketballmom42 or something like that, and I got all depressed about taking away a doll from someone who was obviously buying it for their handicapped child.

I still have "Share a Smile" and "School Photographer" Becky. Even though these dolls are the rarest modern incarnations of the Barbie line, they're still cheap as hell. I guess that able-bodied guilt overrides rarity in this case, along with the disastrous realization that the chair wouldn't fit in the Barbie dream house, and Mattel had to remove the doll from shelves during Christmas.

No, last year it was a black barbie being cheaper than a white barbie, so it was racist and discriminatory because it showed they valued the black one less or some such nonsense. This year, with the situation reversed, it's racist too.

Some people just like to scream about racism because it makes them feel better about themselves.

Well I can't speak of the crapass plastic they use for most dolls but I can tell you the reason you don't see dark-skinned Ball Joint Dolls is because the resin doesn't take the color. It's nearly impossible to dye it a dark shade and have the shade stay consistent, let alone not freak out and change color.

collecstasy.files.wordpress.com

This is typically about as dark as you'll see resin get... and the problem is you can't get it anywhere near the sun, especially the old "tan" resins because sunlight not only bleaches the resin, it bleaches to GREEN. Seriously. I've heard that they can add stabilizers now but that only holds the resin for about a year, after that, good luck. Even the light colored resins will yellow over time.

That being said they are getting better at it, but I imagine this:

collecstasy.files.wordpress.com

Costs a HELL of a lot more than any of the typical pale skinned BJDs.

Ringshadow: Well I can't speak of the crapass plastic they use for most dolls but I can tell you the reason you don't see dark-skinned Ball Joint Dolls is because the resin doesn't take the color. It's nearly impossible to dye it a dark shade and have the shade stay consistent, let alone not freak out and change color.



This is typically about as dark as you'll see resin get... and the problem is you can't get it anywhere near the sun, especially the old "tan" resins because sunlight not only bleaches the resin, it bleaches to GREEN. Seriously. I've heard that they can add stabilizers now but that only holds the resin for about a year, after that, good luck. Even the light colored resins will yellow over time.

That being said they are getting better at it, but I imagine this:



Costs a HELL of a lot more than any of the typical pale skinned BJDs.


I knew there was a rational explanation in here somewhere. Thank you refresh button.

The black doll was more expensive on Amazon because it was a higher-demand item.

But I wouldn't expect a black lady to understand economics anyway.

The girl at the counter was at a loss, so I was called up as one of the team leaders. We tried explaining that the white one was the previous year's, with the older clothing package, and that accounted for the price difference.

She started screaming about racism and swung the doll at the clerk. We had to have security remove her from the store, screaming the entire time about how she was going to sue.

I'm racist...against idiots who make your I.Q. lower just by being in the same room.

For instance...Tasha Banks.

I'm racist for the media making it 'ok' for black folk to come off as drugdealing, ho-lovin', gangsta wannabes, and then having BLACK FOLK turn around and WANT to reinforce that 'bad ass' image.

Take this for example: any black kid would rather be associated with a saggin pants, smokin green, and being bad than wearing a tie and speaking proper. Yea, alot of white kids are the same, but at least their PARENTS AREN'T reinforcing/condoning their behavior. There's a reason that older black folk cross the street when they see younger black kids walking their way.

There's a reason why most violent crimes committed by black people are against those they do not know, vs. heinous violent crimes committed by whites are usually crimes of passion.

There's a reason Bill Cosby said black folk need to clean up their culture.

Are all white people perfect? Hell no. Is any one group of perfect? Hell no.

This whole thing is stupid. From the same store, they're the same price. The manufacturer made them the same price. Obviously too little of one version were ordered most places and now you have to go to rip off stores for it.

The Hispanic one is in stock at the same $65, and there is a slightly different African American one (play all day instead of walk and giggle) in stock for $57. Boo Hoo.

One time back in high school when I was working at Taco Bell this black guy came into the store and tried to pay with a $2 bill. I informed him that we don't accept counterfeit money, but this black guy was so dumb that he INSISTED that it was real. Can you believe that?

Anyway, I called the police and he was so dumb he waited around until the cop got there and SHOWED him the bill! The cop of course told him it was a fake so this counterfeiter accused us of being racist. The officer quickly subdued this thug with a Tazer and took him off to jail.

Can I tell one? How racism destroyed humor:
I don't know if you would call me "sheltered" but I had never heard the "monkey = black man" racial epithet until a few years ago. Long before that, I came across the Funniest Joke Ever in an old joke book. It's a two-part joke, and it goes like this:
Q: Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?
A: Because it was dead.
Q: Why did the frog fall out of the tree?
A: It was stapled to the monkey.
Now the frog part is supposed to be the funny bit, but I never get that far telling the joke because "Because it was dead" would send me into fits of laughter. Seriously, that was the funniest thing I had ever heard. So a few years ago, I was in the Navy, and we were telling jokes. And I told the Funniest Joke Ever. And one of my southern-born shipmates laughed almost as hard as I did, and said, "Yeah, goddamn n***** swingin' from the tree!" I was noticeably confused, so he explained that "monkey means n*****." I have never laughed at that joke again. It's just not funny now.

So I hate racism. And I hate racists. I hate the woman in this story for crying racism over a stupid farking doll. I hate the goddamn bigots who hate people over the color of their skin. I hate that race is still a valid consideration for anything in a modern society. Because of stupid shiat like this, I can't laugh at the FUNNIEST GODDAMN JOKE EVER anymore. Assholes.

===============================

First, calm down. Being emotional will only serve to confuse you further. You just spent three paragraphs ranting about points that I never even tried to make. I never said anything about whether she understood the laws of supply and demand. It is apparent that she does not understand how it may effect the prices of a product on Amazon.com. I commented on the posters who said things which amounted to:

"of COURSE she doesn't understand. She's a black woman."

Those are the racist comments that I find offensive and that I had the audacity to dispute. Also, I challenge any of you to read through this and similar threads and try to understand why this woman may justifiably be overly-sensitive with regards to racial matters. It's apparent that bigots exist. But, black people aren't allowed to question anything, less the be labeled "racist". You clowns apparently don't even know what the word means. Even if the woman thought that the discrepancy in the price of the doll was totally motivated by racism, it doesn't make HER a racist to question the motives of someone else. Slow down and think, try to comprehend what you read, and stop putting words in my mouth. I

Even if the woman thought that the discrepancy in the price of the doll was totally motivated by racism, it doesn't make HER a racist to question the motives of someone else.

However, if a white person assumes that the perpetrator of a crime was a black person, THEY are racist. I fail to see the difference. This boneheaded retard ASSUMED the difference in the price of the dolls was based on racism because SHE is the racist and because that's the way her mind works.

The only hypocrite in this scenario is her. The fact that she is black is not the reason why she doesn't understand how Amazon/supply & demands works. It is because she is racist that she doesn't understand. I sincerely doubt she even wants to understand the real reason behind the price discrepancy as she wouldn't have gotten any media attention had she possessed any common sense whatsodamnedever.

LMAO. Ok, now is the part where I question your intelligence because your analogy is pretty stupid. Do you understand what racism is?? Yes, assuming that a crime is perpetrated by a black person because you think all criminals are black is racist, and dumb. The woman is asking a question. She sees a disparity and she is asking "what is the difference that would justify a difference in the price of these two similar products?" Since the only visible difference is the race of the dolls, she has asked WHY. That doesn't make her a racist. That makes her racially sensitive - maybe overly sensitive - but it does NOT mean that she has an opinion of ALL white people. However, assuming that criminals will always be black suggests that YOU believe black people have a predisposition to criminality. That is bigotted and the fact that you can't tell the difference is telling.

The only hypocrite in this scenario is her. The fact that she is black is not the reason why she doesn't understand how Amazon/supply & demands works.

I have addressed you point and I totally disagree with you. You have no justification for using the qualifier "most" other than that's what YOU feel. You don't know what motivates any of these comments any more than I do, but for some reason its easier for you to assign some phantom unoffensive meaning to the comments than to just take them at face value.

No you didn't address my point. In the forum we are in (fark) what happened in this thread happens in all threads. the subject of the headline gets ripped if they did something rip worthy :). For you to claim that this thread is racist because the subject is black is ridiculous. Notice in my initial post I said "most" were just making silly jokes. I believe that still. You've said nothing to prove otherwise.

Why don't black people get over themselves already. They have such an inferiority complex. White people and companies don't give a crap what color you are. If the dolls were cheaper or more expensive, it's because of supply and demand.

....but of course knowing that requires and education ;)

He actually made a really good point. That being just because you think "dey all got gold teef and rims and skrimps yuk yuk" is silly and wacky doesn't make it illogical for anyone to think it's racist.

It needs to be pointed out AGAIN that the lower priced doll is sold directly from Amazon, and the higher priced doll is being offered by a reseller other than Amazon, aka a third party, aka a person trying to capitalize on supply and demand.......

This is almost as bad as complaining about a price difference between the two on Ebay.

There really is no story here, but the media can't seem to figure that out.

Yeah they did, but that's because they were specific characters who happened to be black. It's not like there was white Joe and black Joe (at least past the 60's) As far as I know, nobody bought them to build a self image, or made a big deal about any price difference. Boys played with them because they were freaking awesome.

Lol. Umm, the comment was made to show AN EXAMPLE of racism to make the distinction between that and what you all are calling racism, from the article.

My niece wanted this certain baby doll for Christmas. All they had were the black dolls, so that is what she got. She LOVED that doll! I was walking her though the toy store to go buy an outfit for the doll and I asked her if she had though of a name. She thought for a moment and then said loudly "MONKEY! Since she looks like one!" Wow, if looks could kill...me I mean. None of the parents seemed to be angry at the 4-year-old, but somehow I was to blame.

I'd like to point out, as a white male, that white males have always been oppressed. I'm glad worldwide awareness is starting to rise to our plight, but the fact is, we're constantly under scrutiny and attack.

Cosby actually did live in a world that was filled with racism. Perhaps he's just better than you.
"Cosby, who holds a doctorate in education, asked that African American parents begin teaching their children better morals at a younger age."
That Uncle-Tom bastard.


Funny thing is that Chris Rock would pretty much say the same damn thing but because he used "fark" and "shiat" a lot he didn't get the uncle tom card thrown at him.

So glad we're now in post-racial ObamAmerica.

Hermione_Granger: shiat like this makes me want to pimp slap the shiat out of white people. You should have been honest and said, "No, let's name her something else." Instead, like typical white folks, you let unknowingly continue with some racist bs without correction because hey, it's cute right?

Wrong.

stupid crackas

Racist much? Idiot.


uh huh. Because letting your white child keep a black doll and name it monkey isn't racist or idiotic at all.

DROxINxTHExWIND: Trixie212: OMFG...shut up.

Look...it's just this simple. The stupid biatch either wasn't smart enough to understand how Amazon works or it was just simpler and more convenient for her to scream "racism" because in reality, she is the one who is racist.

How difficult is it to understand that Amazon doesn't set the prices for items sold by individuals? If someone is inclined to expend just a teeny bit of effort, they could enter almost any item into the search field and, oh my god...what's this? A whole range of pricing is available for all sorts of things? No farking way!

She's a racist biatch and you talk too damn much but say nothing.
===============================

First, calm down. Being emotional will only serve to confuse you further. You just spent three paragraphs ranting about points that I never even tried to make. I never said anything about whether she understood the laws of supply and demand. It is apparent that she does not understand how it may effect the prices of a product on Amazon.com. I commented on the posters who said things which amounted to:

"of COURSE she doesn't understand. She's a black woman."

Those are the racist comments that I find offensive and that I had the audacity to dispute. Also, I challenge any of you to read through this and similar threads and try to understand why this woman may justifiably be overly-sensitive with regards to racial matters. It's apparent that bigots exist. But, black people aren't allowed to question anything, less the be labeled "racist". You clowns apparently don't even know what the word means. Even if the woman thought that the discrepancy in the price of the doll was totally motivated by racism, it doesn't make HER a racist to question the motives of someone else. Slow down and think, try to comprehend what you read, and stop putting words in my mouth. I
m capable of forming and explaining my own opinions.

/Appreciate ya.


your whole problem is you put the emphasis on the wrong word of the phrase 'black woman' in that sentence.

Aarontology: Nobody gives a rat's ass what race GI Joes are. Or what race the Turtles are.

The turtles are turtles -- the question isn't race, it's species.

What an African turtle (Geochelone sulcata) might look like:

SpaceyCat: As mentioned in the article - it's called supply and demand. If there's demand for a low stock item, the price goes up!

Yeesh. It's painful coming into these threads, finding one or two Farkers trying in vain to point out hate speech. And of course all the hilariously funny "non-racists" who are just trying to have a good time. We make fun of everything here at Fark! Well, except when someone dies or a Farker gets cancer, etc. Then we have serious threads where you can't say anything derogatory or mean, or you'll be shouted down. But in these race threads, I feel like I'm on some sort of white supremacist message board. And Dro has stuck around for years, pointing out obvious racial hate & prejudice, and getting ridiculed for it. I've watched this go on many times with him. Oh, and somehow he is the racist, not you cruel farkers hiding behind keyboards, playing your fun trolling/baiting/mockery games. Yeah, right now I feel icky about being a Farker, if it associates me with this hate-fest where everyone bashes the guy who points out very obvious racism occurring in the thread, and make him out as the racist just for speaking up. Blech.

And yet no one's outraged by the discriminating price difference between Black Tar and China White?

Pathetic to see you middle-American repressed racists crawling out of the woodwork. You're not funny, and you're not half as bright as you think you are. Oh, and you all smell like bologna and wet dog.

IdBeCrazyIf: Of course they should charge more. It takes a little more plastic to form the ass.

Over in 2. That badonkadonk takes some extra expenses. Nice work!

Hate speech? on Fark? Dude, fark is hate speech. against everyone. That's practically the whole point of this site. To make jokes and rag on people.

So prejudicial statements based on someone's geographical history is just fine? Like saying people from sub-Saharan Africa are not as useful as those from Europe?

Well, in truth, historically...

She thought for a moment and then said loudly "MONKEY!


But she DID look like one...at least to the little girl.

When the kid said it looked like a monkey, she wasn't being racist. She was just keepin' it real, yo.
