    • So true

    • Dave

      I think you mean grape kool aid …

  • BigDingo

    It's a little sad in a way that there is only way that is racist against any other race but blacks… you would hope that at least the racism would be directed at more races…

    wait what?

  • daduts

    more like intentional.

  • Jonathan

    Al I want to know is where I can get watermelon soda. I'll drink that racist shit up.

    • Frenchgirl

        Supposedly, this site has it: http://www.sodapopstop.com/products/detail.cfm?li… They're LA-based, so they should ship all over the US, no idea if they do international.

        I also know that you could find them in cans like the pic on this post in Target (youtube watermelon soda), but that's last year, no idea if it's still out.

        Also, you can make your own watermelon soda, and it tastes great 🙂 Chill it a bit, or make it out of nearly-frozen watermelon, and it's even better.

        • John Carter

          I don't know if it's available in all areas, but Kroger sells a Kiwi-Watermelon soda.

  • Jonathan

    Also, #1 one has me LOL'ing.

  • MigraineBoy

    #15 is almost unbelievable…. You can't make shit like that up.

  • ADS

    O.M.G. chive

    U also have some understanding of my struggle
    I guess we can be friends again

  • order_66

    Epic truth, thank you chive.

  • Big_Hairy_Si

    We must all stop this racism! Racism is a crime – and crime is what black people do.

  • Me!

    In defense of a couple of them…. #5 – Having worked in the restaurant industry, I can tell you that black people really do order certain foods more often than white people (not that white people don't eat fried chicken, mind you). That's not a racist statement, it's a statistical fact. I'm not certain what's so awful about that. Is there something so horrible about fried chicken and collared greens that it's racist to say black people eat them more?

    And 8 and 12… it's sad, but I don't think that's racist so much as corporations are after one thing and one thing only – $$. If the black dolls don't sell as many as the white dolls, they're all about moving units and they don't care how racist it looks, because I honestly don't think racism is the intent, but profit.

    1 – ehh… it was trying, lol. If you're going to have technology on a camera to tell when people blinked, it's going to have limits.

    Most of the others… yeah, there's no excuse (especially number 9… WTF? Is that fake? I find it hard to believe something would exist that blatant.)

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001225207844 Cristi Palincas

      I don't see what's offensive about #9. But then again, I'm from europe and my family history includes people from all over the world.

      In case you're actually curious about it existing, it did. It was pulled due to complaints, but it was on the shelved for a short time. An almost identical doll, along with caucasian and hispanic versions, but called "pretty panda" with a panda doll, got no complaints. Which I think is weird, because kids are far more like monkeys than pandas :/

      Hey ME! Yer pretty smart. You shouldn't even be commenting here! LOLz

  • zym

    True, they did not create them. They simply illustrated, recorded, wrote out, sold and marketed them. They totally redeemed themselves!!

    • gozer

      I didnt say it was right…

    • Black6dog

      Am I missing something? What is wrong with that story?

  • 'Merica

    couldn't help but laugh my ass off at #13. "Lawsee" LOL

  • http://colddeadfingers.tk Merovingian

    Stop whining about fucking race, race doesn't come in to it until people start bringing it up..

    • GGGGGusX

      actually there are racist institutions and policies all over the world. stop pretending that racism doesn't exist, because it definitely does.

  • deleted44311

    • santana

    • cdnalor

    • http://Thechive.com Tim

      Hey dumb ass, they do. Its called
      "people of walmart". Us whities got got some funky shit in some of our gene pools. 😉
      And bye the way, the Liberal media, a race bating president, al sharpton and jesse jackson, these people do nothing but flame already existant racial tension.

  • dece

    it's interesting to me to consider which of these are blatantly racist and which are racist only due of the perception of the viewer.

    p.s. there's nothing wrong with #6.

  • Maddog

    Wow epic fails, all! But if you can't laugh it off, the racists win. Their goal is to piss you off.

  • The Knowledge

    The fact that the US has a 'black history month' is such a weird concept to me on soooo many levels.

  • Aren't we all

    #4 Don't remember that one but I had a few of those read along book and records, they were awesome! Yeah I know, probably just outed that I'm the oldest one here.

  • http://thechive.com/ mattythegooch

    Stereotypes are here for a reason!! Now, blatantly being a dick is one thing, but this shit is FUNNY!!

  • nouu

    the accusation of racism has been so overused and beat to death by liberals that it means nothing anymore, also no one really cares…

  • Dan

    The 2 with the black dolls priced lower than the white dolls is not racist. When a product sits and sits, it is marked down to try to move it. I'm sure if this had been an inner city store, the white doll would have been priced lower. We used to get Hannakah and Kwanza displays in around the holidays. In a rural, redneck communtiy nobody will buy that stuff. Pricing and what sells is based on demographics, not racism.
