More Thoughts About the Sasha & Malia Dolls

Posted on January 29, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

From S. Mays:

“I think that this is another opportunity for white people to make money.  The company should have gotten permission to use their names.  I agree Mrs. Obama statement that was shown on channel 7 news last night.”

From D. Fagan:
“That sh*t is messed up!”

From P. White:
“I believe this is a great idea.  Why?  There are numerous collectible items other nationalities have.  To name a few, Betty Boop, Hello Kitty, Barbie, Wonder Pets, GI Joe Men, Elvis Presley, Dora, Diego, Sponge Bob, The Bratz, American Girls, Build-a-bear, etc.  These forementioned items represent other nationalities, so why can’t Blacks have a collectible exclusively representing the Black girl and the Black woman?  Since Blacks have been forced to familiarize themselves with the occurrences and ethnicities of other races, why can’t the same be done for us…the black woman and girl?  I’m not bitter of the forementioned, I would just like to see all other races familiarizing themselves with the Black race, in a good light; not what they see in the videos, jails, streets, and morgue.”

From A. Miles:
“They are cute.  I would like to see American Girl dolls done as well.”

From B. Morris:
“I think it is exploitive and invasive since they are minors.  It appears that there must not be a law against it since both parents are lawyers and have made no indication that they intend to stop it or at least insure that the girls receive a percentage of the profits.”

From V. Anderson:
“This isn’t right!  Those Beany Babies don’t resemble them at all, and the manufacturers did not get permission to make the dolls. ”

From O. Suarez:
“I think the girls are beautiful,  but they shouldn’t make them commercial.  These are real people, not actors, and should be respected as such.
