MultiMEDEA

Interesting, Lord Darkhan. I, my sisters, and my cousins had almost the exact opposite experience with black Barbies (or worse, Christies). She just didn't seem very "black" to us. [Meaning: she didn't relate very much to our African American experience--to those out there going, "Huh?"] Then again she was too much of a faux Barbie for us to take seriously. She just didn't seem legit. We mostly asked for and bought the white Barbies. And, of course, the large Stylin' Hair Christie head. If there's one little black girls love to do is play with hair. If the poor thing wasn't half-bald after a month of play, we weren't doing our job! :twisted:
