Theres been a few studies that show children off all races shun Black or dark skinned dolls and prefer White or fair skinned dolls. I think part of it is innate and part of it is cultural (on a global scale).

Just very sad really. Even Black dogs get the short end of the stick in adoptions compared to lighter coloured canines.

It didn’t matter much that Jake was a sociable dog and in perfect health. Jake’s problem wasn’t his temperament—it was the color of his coat. Jake bore the stigma of the “BBD,” an acronym used to refer to big black dogs, who are frequently passed over for flashier, prettier dogs and wind up, like Jake, waiting for years to be adopted.

Nobody wants a black-coated dog,” rescue workers told Delaney as she tried without success to find a home for Jake. And when Delaney turned to the Internet, she found that shelters across the country were overflowing with black-coated mutts.

“Please don’t overlook our black dogs,” rescue groups pleaded on their home pages above pictures of Rottweilers, Chows and Labs sporting bright bandanas. One shelter’s website just came right out with the grim truth: “The general public is not aware of how doomed black dogs are when they are brought to a pound.”

Doesn't look very black to me. How much would one of these be?

It all evens out...most people prefer brown chocolate.

Others stuff in their mouth whatever comes along regardless of colour and price

All a matter of conditioning mate. Just look up experiments like the controversial one done by Jane Elliot of 1968.

In the mean time, check out these adorable dolls.
