Accidental Racism?


A major retailer (Costco) sells white dolls bundled with panda bears with a headband that reads:

Pretty Panda

On the same display rack, they sell African-American dolls bundled with a monkey... and holding a partially peeled banana. Its headband reads:

lil’ monkey

But that wasn’t an intentional attempt at racism, was it?


After all, we have previously established that calling someone a banana eating jungle monkey is not a racist act.
