Now why am I not surprised to find out that the CEO The Brass Key, Inc., the manufactures of the racist Lil Monkey Doll donated money to the Bush-Cheney and the Republican National Committee? See report here.

Follow me here because it’s always important to connect the dots…

So what’s next, a statement from the Republican HNIC Michael Steele applauding Brass Key’s diversity in their dolls?

And in case you’re late getting to this story…

Costco recently removed boxes of  “Cuddle with Me” dolls after customers complained at a store in Greensboro, North Carolina.

The dolls in question were of a Black version of a baby surrounded by monkeys and wearing a cap with the words “Li’l Monkey.”

The white version of the doll was of a baby surrounded by pandas with a cap “Pretty Panda.”

The retailer and the manufacturer of the dolls both issued statements that the intent was never to offend anyone.

I don’t know, you tell me, racist, not racist?
