It's entirely about supply/demand.. the black dolls are clearly selling less than the white ones.. they lower the price of the black ones to encourage people to buy them over the white dolls because they potentially end up overstocked..

The white barbie is in higher demand, therefore they raise the price of it to maximize the profit.. but still have to be careful to not set the price point too high as it will have the opposite effect and deter people more than the company is aiming for..

It's classic business economics..

The real thing to pay attention to, is the fact that this suggests even black people are buying the white barbie over the black one
exactly. if they were the same price and both got marked down with black barbie selling less units, why would they mark down both to the same price? lowering the black barbie gives it more of an edge to consumers

every comment in this thread pisses me off.
fu*k the thread starter for posting this and crying "Racism"
fu*k the posters that blindly agree
fu*k the posters trying to turn this into some complicated economic scheme
fu*k every oppressive c*ck sucker in here
fu*k BJ's Wholesale Club
and fu*k ME FOR CLICKING THIS GOD DAMNED THREAD...

Why can't it just be that matel made a fu*k load of barbie dolls, the white ones sold better and the black ones were overstocked?

I hate this fu*king website i swear SDHSDFNVAJDNFMDGLFG

actually the white doll should be cheaper since more of those are manufactured more.... so thats really rascist
Supply and demand. Seeing as little girls don't want the black doll, even is them themselves are black, that's gonna be the bargain product.If there's a rack full of black barbies in Wal Mart after Christmas, you better believe the prices will be slashed low as hell just to unload those things. You have to make space for incoming inventory.

Putting the feelings of those with a low self image above profit, isn't smart business. People'll find something to complain about.You can always read way too much into something like this. Especially when you think it's You against an entire race.

It's only like that is you go out of your way to force the issue. Most people are willing to focus on other sh*t.

obviously the black doll don't sale so they're marking it down. But what bothered me was when the Princess and the Frog came out, which my daughter loved there wasn't many stores that would sell her sh*t even when people from them stores would always tell you, I don't know why we don't carry because alot of people wanted to buy it.

food for thought...this study is as old as time itself but it rings true to this day. everything isn't one sided...it's easy to explain away a lot of things, but this goes much deeper.
