An Argentine store is selling nearly identical black and white dolls. Other than the obvious color- and the prices- the black ones are priced at 399 pesos ($10) and the white ones are priced at 499 pesos ($13). One shopper threw a fit and blames racism.

The story doesn't say who it is that feels discriminated against or even the race of the outraged customer. Clearly the disadvantaged race is white since they need to cough up more for the same deal. But my spidey senses tell me that the outraged shopper is black. I dunno.

Thoughts?

White baby has a nicer shirt. (no doubt as a result of white privilege)
Time for some torch & pitchfork action for nicer black baby shirts.

Just ignore it. Don't give this type of garbage the attention the media is hoping for.
