This Lil Baby Doll is a Mess -
Each of the different news stations that covered this story, in their local area; showed different versions. This was clear, and it prompted us to wonder why the stories were shot differently ?
- were they catering to their locality ?
- was there a Black Producer on One and a White Producer on the other one ?
- what made this story appear differently in all the versions of this tape and the story; that we've read over the past few days ?
- is american racism now hybridizing ? it appears that there seems to be regionalism coming into play in these cases.
The "Cuddle with Me" doll package he complained about includes an African-American doll and a plush monkey. The baby doll is wearing a hat that reads, "Lil' Monkey."
The dolls were sold exclusively at Costco stores in the Northeast and Southeast.
The Reporting of the story has taken several slants - and we wonder if the doll; or the reporting is more of a problem. the doll is absolutely racist - but the reporters in each case seem to be looking at it differently.
the two white reporters shown first seem trapped into reporting it - where the Black and White Reporters shown second, seem to give more attention to detail - Why is it that this would be a choice in attitude when reporting a very worthy news story ?
Does the news media really think we see things differently if we're different races ? could it be true ? Racism is Racism and it's Wrong - regardless of who you are. when you grow up in America - you know it's wrong. so why are these reports so much different on the same story by two different news teams ?
The bottom line is that this story like the one on the kids drill team before it; says that America is still attempting to silently program racism into it's children; and maintain it inside societal mores'; however covertly. as well it seems, the media still continues to instill its racial mores' into the adults; who watch the news and are buying these toys.
Brutally Sad but True... right before our eyes, on the National News.
