    Edited as the people replying have no understanding of right and wrong.

    Take what you will from it. All I see is a bunch of immature nonsense replies.

    Good day!

    1) This guy looks like a fat version of the dude from Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

    2) Racist? I doubt it. The "AA" ones are probably on clearance because stores have more of them within the supply chain/more of them that aren't selling, and or are simply being replaced with a newer version soon. Along with that, it could also be a simple effort to get more coloured dolls out to consumers, possibly even tied into Black History Month.

    3) Why is he buying dolls when he could be buying ponies or Transformers?

    4) None of things are meant to be insults, simply opinions based on initial observations.

    Indeed. It is stupid to the point where it makes me wonder if there's some kind of reward or badge you get on here that I don't know about for making ____ amount of threads.

    Well, I think the regular searching threshold is limited to 10 pages or something (aka, what shows up from the profile link), meaning that once you make enough shitty threads, your older (and assumingly even shittier) topics won't be as easy to find because they'll be somewhat buried.

    #1 DO NOT FILM SOMETHING SIDEWAYS!! Damn that was annoying.

    #2 What retard leaves their wallet in the car?

    #3 He seriosly needs a new life if he goes around Walmart comparing dolls to discover 'racism'. How much fun must his Dolly-runs be?


    Tune in next week for his epic 30 minute racist tampon expose.

    Yeah, I really hope this just a video the OP came across, and not something he was actually involved in filming/having filmed, and not even because I think the claims are bogus too. This just screams a petty way of using something controversial (if you can even call it that at this point) to get attention & pass it off a legitimate concern.

    I'm interested in seeing how tampons can pull it off, though.

    What happened:

    - The dolls were shipped in various ratios to various markets based on general ethnicity in known market (research = sales)

    Then this happened:

    - The AA dolls were sold as a separate sku
    OR
    - The AA dolls just didn't sell as well

    Now it is time for Wal-Mart to get rid of some items (via clearance) because they are over-budget on their SKU's and thus you clearance out the items that have either already dropped in price or that you've received a kickback from the manufacturor because the item did not sell as well as the contracted "you buy this at this price and we guarantee you will sell this much or we'll pay you back this much in order to clearance it out" agreement.

    In short? It's not racism - it's ignorance to how business and retail works.

    That's fucking retarded. If an item doesn't sell well, it goes to clearance. What's the problem, what does it have to do with race?

    Too bad you can't report videos for stupidity...though half of youtube would be shut down.

    Obviously it's all the Walmart shoppers that are racist, with the store kowtowing to their racist demands. We should ban them for only buying the dolls their children actually want! Dolls need affirmative action too!

    Alot of winners in this thread.

    The point being. If someone wanted to buy a White doll for their White child they should not have to pay 3X's as much.

    Also from my understanding there were more White Dolls then Black Dolls.



    Judge A Doll not by the color of it's skin but the content of its character- MLK

    And.....because the toy manufacturer made more white dolls than black dolls.....that makes the retail store (in this case, Walmart) a racist? (Sorry mods I'm gonna have to type this out) WHAT THE FUCK kinda logic is that? And what if the colored dolls were bought up instead, leaving behind all the "White" ones. You know, like Movie Bumblebee and the Twins. Can you be more narrow minded?

    There are plenty of "White Dolls" that are cheaper and people don't HAVE TO buy a freakin Cabbage Patch Doll for their kid. But if they wanna spend that kinda money on a toy for their kid then they're gonna have to cough up the cash at the price point the stores have it labeled. Its the same principle as customers of your store wanting to buy a toy off of YOUR store, they'll have to pay YOUR prices. Some may feel YOUR prices are expensive despite your advertisement stating you beat your competitors. Needless to say, you've bragged multiple times about how much money you've made so you really have NO room to even talk here.

    Yeah, that's right. I said it.

    More like a lot of common sense. What if it was a matter of black dresses vs. white dresses on the dolls? The black dresses go on clearance and the white ones stay regular price. Are you going to complain about how a kid might want a white dress doll?

    Or a black robot vs. a white robot?
