How Much is That Negative Stereotype on the Shelf?

Wal-mart sells black Barbie at reduced price:Conspiracy or inventory control?

Now, I'll be the first to admit that this is likely an inventory control measure and not some not-so-subtle racial slap by selling white Barbie at full price and black Barbie at half price.

But it sure looks bad on the shelves and it sure will send a message to little black girls who see that white Barbie is worth twice as much as black Barbie.

And that's not a message that should be sent to any child about any demographic.
