First off, I'm glad that people on here are recognizing that complexes actually DO still exist all over the place. But I find it really funny that this topic is essentially about IR relationships when it boils down to it (A black doll meant to be purchsed with a white<?> parter).
People can argue that it's all about "brainwashing the youth" which I'm not AT ALL denying as a likely possibility, but how is this "brainwashing" or "complex" ANY different than black youth CONSTANLY seeing, (from our OWN people) the majority of successful black males on TV, etc. (along with a lot of everyday BM) pretty much reaching to date, marry, etc. anything that's outside of their own race? Are people lacking that much in the self-awareness dept., coincidentally, right up until something leaves a bad taste in their mouth?
Now, I'm not downplaying the significance of the above "Black Disney doll" issue but, basically, in the end, it seems to all boil down to a black female living "happily ever after" with a (possibly) non-black male, which is what A LOT of ppl (esp. BM) claim that that's all IR relationships is about for them. Which, if that's true, then why not just take the doll and her parter as a reflection of real life?
I don't quite get it. What, after the age a kid stops playing with dolls and watching Disney movies, they're no longer influenced or impacted by what they see others do and their patterns??? Do you honestly believe that constant REAL LIFE examples of favoritism/complexes don't effect kids just as much, if not more than a DISNEY DOLL???
I guess what I'm trying to say is that probably some of the same people who complain (and if this is not you, then I'm not reffering to you) about BW just solely being "jealous", "bitter", "insecure", "haters", etc. when it comes to IR relationships with BM and WW (or non-BW) can SURE AS SH!T turn on the light bulb and conciousness when something rubs them the wrong way...when these comments are basically the EXACT same opinions and feelings that others (mainly BW) have been expressing on countless instances in a lot of IR dating threads etc., which is: "It's sending the message that you're not good enough and not wanted" And please correct me if I'm wrong about that being the general issue with this story's subject.
Kinda makes it look like people get it (duh), yet don't wanna admit to it at certain times because then, obviously, IR relationship "discussions" wouldn't be quite as amusing for them. JMHO.
