Doll

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

Ya think?

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.

Sure, I believe that like I believe that now that we’ve got a Black president racism against Blacks is a thing of the past.

I mean really, Lil Monkey?  WTF?
