So I go into walmart earlier tonight to find a prop for an upcoming class presentation. What i needed was a make believe doctor kit for a demonstration.
I was directed to two different types of doctor kits, one being the popular kids' tv show Dr. McStuffins which was valued at 15.00 even


then  one for boys

 with the exact same equipment enclosed sans the purple/pink themes that was valued at just under 20.00 Stern Smile
Why does walmart keep doing this sh*t?Angry
Have yall seen other examples of this other than the black barbie/white barbie thread from awhile back?

(And the girl's version was not a markdown...that was the set price)

i wouldn't read too much into it if i were you. of course there are racist undertones but hell, try to focus on the bright side. the cheaper price makes it more accessible to more people i guess.

It really does suck that our worth is lower in retail.. but hun, I need to hold my head up high. I just watched Black Girls Rock and I'm feeling aglow. I will at least be happy its far more financially available.

Doc is the protagonist so her getting more easily bought is at least a positive.

You caught a sale on a hot toy from last year . Black barbies for example are price higher during the holidays . I filed a complaint last year with target and won a few free items . The stores carry hundreds of white dolls , but you must shop early to find ours . Baby alive black dolls where higher when they first came out . We need to complain more as parents and family members .

A grocery store where I live always have black cosmetics and hair products one sale. I don't complain cus I figure black folks don't typically go to the grocery store to buy beauty products. I don't mind, it seems like I'm the only one that knows LOLLOL

This does not bother me and I actually picked up 2 for Christmas when I saw it was only $15 bucks what does bother me was how like India said there are a lack of minority baby dolls. My daughter loves baby alives but the Hispanic ones always sells out. My daughter is a very light-complexioned afro-latina so the african-american dolls are way too dark for her and the Hispanic babies always sell out quick it really sucks.
