This is just sad...

So through sociological images I came across this post about divergent prices on black and white dolls of the same variety:


Assuming the tags are actually accurate which they may not be, the worst thing about this is that if you are privately adopting an actual, living breathing child, the disparity is actually much larger. I'd say the black "doll" would only be about 10 bucks - more than 1/4 but definitely less than 1/2 of the white baby, right?

THAT'S what's gross.

I think one of the dolls was mis-shelved. The string of characters above the prices is not the same length.

Doesn't change the gut reaction to that photo, though.
