But anyhow, in this hypersensitive age we live in, how could anyone not know some would be offended? I mean, a black colored doll?? Come on now, so obvious.

Why would anyone make these and why would a company stock these? Why would anyone buy them. I don't think this is a matter of hypersensitivity. If it were female dolls meant to be abused I'd be furious as well as blacks should be in this case. People can be real idiots.

Imagine being so mentally ill that you hate someone just because their skin is dark.

I thought toy companies were considered PC by offering dolls of different skin colors.

Not Golliwog dolls. There is a big difference between offering dolls of different skin colors, and a Golliwog doll.

Generic? Does that look like a white doll to you?

Encouraging anyone to slam anything against a wall is just plain stupid. A human figure that just happens to be black? Yeah, that's worse.

Wow. Even if that is satire, it's still a pretty idiotic thing to say.
