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

no one wants the black doll, sh*t not even black girls want the black doll...dolls impersonate life and there are very few "black dolls" in the media and movies...it has to be cheap as hell to be sold...

Its not racist, definitely not on the stores part
But it does clearly show that there is a racial undertone in most decisions made in daily life whether conciously or not
The black doll doesnt sell as well so it on sale like most sh*t that doesnt sell
Thats not the issue that what stores do
The fact that the black doll isnt selling well IS

Glad to see an educated man on this site.

The market for a Black doll is a fraction as it is for a white doll, especially for Barbie, who is white.

Glad to see you read the thread. [/sarcasm] WHITE BARBIES SELL MORE IN QUANTITY MEANING THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH CHARGING MORE FOR THEM BECAUSE THERE ARE MORE DEMANDED.

BLACK BARBIES DO NOT SELL AS WELL AS WHITE BARBIES SO THEY NEED TO DROP THE PRICE TO INCREASE DEMAND.

IF BOTH BARBIES WERE EQUAL IN DEMAND THEIR PRICES WOULD BE THE SAME. HOWEVER THEY ARE NOT, THEY ARE LIKELY BEING SOLD AT THE EQUILIBRIUM PRICE FROM THE PAST YEARS SALES.

Here is a graphic that may help.

The only thing racist is the fact that little girls have been brainwashed into wanting the white dolls by society(more specifically the media) and parents do nothing but reaffirm that notion by purchasing it for them..don't blame the company for decreasing the price compared to the white dolls, blame the media and parents for supporting the idea that white dolls are superior than black dolls..the problem has to be attacked at it's root or nothing will ever change

Damn, if the price is reduced to $34.....how the fukk much do these dolls cost??? I'll be damned if I drop $50 on a Barbie doll for my lil girl. Maybe if it sang and danced......
