Black dolls unpopular

A while back, Guy White (whose blog is now locked down) posted about Wal-mart selling black Barbie dolls for less than white Barbie dolls. That second link includes links to a couple more items about other stores doing the same thing. The black and white dolls always start out being sold at the same price, but because white dolls are more popular, when it’s time to have a sale the black dolls get marked down to a lower price than the white dolls.

I’m only posting about this because I never heard of it before Guy White posted about it, and then today I came across another example of the same thing:
