                   "SO IN STYLE BARBIE"
(The new African American Doll)

  Recently Mattle has announced a new line of African American Barbie dolls. These 3 new Barbies resemble the features of an African American woman.  They have fuller lips, broader noses etc, and come and 3 different complexions even ethnic names. Previous Barbies used the same molds as white Barbies only obvious difference of course was their brown complexion.  I think the dolls are really cute. However, I think they could have done without the bling bling concept on the "Kara" Barbie. Overall, I think Mattel did a pretty good job.  It is nice to finally see a Barbie that resembles an African American woman. Only tweak Mattel needs to work on is Barbies butt.  I'm 100% sure that has not changed.  For more info on the new dolls check out the link below.


I was on Facebook and happen to come across this video. Wow is all I can say. One movie I am looking forward to watching when it comes to the states. 

"SKIN is one of the most moving stories to emerge from apartheid South Africa: Sandra Laing is a black child born in the 1950s to white Afrikaners, unaware of their black ancestry. Her parents are rural shopkeepers serving the local black community, who lovingly bring her up as their ‘white’ little girl. But at the age of ten, Sandra is driven out of white society. The film follows Sandra’s thirty-year journey from rejection to acceptance, betrayal to reconciliation, as she struggles to define her place in a changing world - and triumphs against all odds"
