1. Gabby believes that people of colour objecting to being racially stereotyped by grotesque dolls have "small minds".

2. Gabby has no compunction in facilitating and spreading racist dog whistle items written by an avowed Islamophobe.

3. Gabby is a racist Islamophobe.


You haven't a clue what You are talking about!


Possibly the best confirmation that I know precisely what I am talking about, ever. Cheers, Art!!

I don't think the Major is serious in his "racism". He doesn't answer questions, doesn't clarify, only deals in ludicrous or half hearted tropes, offers grapeshot ramblings. I think he is only looking for attention. As a recent guest I don't know the Majors history on this forum. Maybe he is someones troll sock :dunno:

Because a black barbie would be promoting positivity whereas the Golliwog was used to demean, insult and belittle black people. It played off of tropes and imagery long established as dehumanising and reinforcing negative stereotypes about black people.


No, it was created as an innocent toy loved by millions of kids worldwide..... the likes of your warped brain turned it into the racist icon it is today! :roll:


Wutang, you’d better not reveal the truth about Father Xmas being unreal! :ooer:

I wonder if Robertsons were being deliberately racist when they had the golliwog as their mascot all those years? :again?:

Because your innocence about the doll doesn’t negate the history/reality of it’s creation.

Probably not deliberately but once it became well known they did the decent thing.
