THIS WEEK IN UNEXPECTED CONFRONTATIONS WITH WHITE PRIVILEGE

  1. Why doesn't Target carry enough black baby dolls??
    I went in with what I thought would be the fairly easy errand of buying a gift for a toddler. Said toddler is black and mom requested a black baby doll on her behalf. Makes sense. But when I arrive in the toy section, rows of white baby dolls and not a black one in sight. At best there is one baby doll that looks like a white doll with a hint of a tan.
  2. Do better, Target. Wal-Mart got my business this time.
