Another “let’s point out the racism” type of post has surfaced the internet once again. Although the original was posted in August of this year, it’s recently grown increasingly more popular and is worth exploring.

Candyce Anthony, who is an African American woman herself, shared the following on Facebook:

My friend from Texas is going to school to be a nurse and posted this on her snap story today. She was so mad while I couldn’t stop laughing

She then proceeded to post a photo of two baby dolls; one was white, while the other was black. Both of these are assumed to be dolls used for and during Karis Scherer’s (the friend) nurse schooling. The white doll has sort of generic but typical features you might see on a white child. The black doll has an accurate skin tone, but the issue came when examining the lips and comparing the two to each other.

 The black doll has bigger lips and a bigger forehead. This was enough to make this nurse student “pissed”. Candyce didn’t seem all that affected by it and even expressed how funny and ridiculous her friend was for being so angry over this. Other people on Facebook, however, particularly the liberal crowd, seemed a bit more offended by the photograph.

Smh🤦🏾‍♀️ That’s fucked up they did that baby like that!

  Well my babies lips didn’t look like this 🤷🏾‍♀️

 I’m trippn on the nose!
Im mad but at least it’s not the other way around?🤷🏾‍♀️
To put extra attention on The obviously exaggerated features is racist 🤦🏾‍♂️
FOH it’s how the made the whole face the black baby ugly af come on now don’t down play how ugly unhappy and old  long forehead eyes too low they made the black baby and the white all cute n big headed n happy 😡
Did you check out the nose on the black baby? I’m pissed 😡 not cool!
No baby. This is racist. The black baby not even smiling. Look at the nose also. Sad really
I almost choked on my food !!!! WHAT in the racist f*** 
!!!! My baby’s lips sholl in tf DON’T look like THAT B.S.!!!!
Wtf!? Why what is wrong with this world!? I can’t deal!!! 
Awwww hell naw!!!!!!    
 Some of these seem outright insane, while others seem to express genuine emotions of frustration and anger. But if we’re talking about children who play with dolls like these, you’ll know that they appreciate accurate features. As you can see in the pictures below, big lips are common in young African American children.
 
This isn’t a negative quality, but when something exists, there always seems to be people willing and ready to complain about it.

    Look at the white babies lips, they are thin as hell!
    Other races always joke about how white people have super thin lips. You could either get mad at that and scream racism, or laugh with them!!
    People be too sensitive

    I’d bet money these dolls were made in China.
