Another golliwog fuss



TOOWOOMBA has been dubbed the “most racist city in Australia” after a display of nine golliwog dolls appeared at a Terry Whites Chemist store in Clifford Gardens.

The dolls were placed underneath a sign inviting shoppers to “Experience a white Christmas”, in a move that’s been slammed by Indigenous activists.

Author and activist Stephen Hagan, who famously campaigned against the “N*gger Brown Stand” in 1999, said the display was offensive.

“Toowoomba is the most racist city in Australia,” he told the Sunshine Coast Daily. “Words can’t describe this behaviour in the 21st century. I can understand it in the 1960s but to do it today is inexcusable.”

The store’s Managing Partner Alwyn Baumann offered an “unreserved apology” in a statement, saying the store had made a “regrettable error” with the display dolls, which they will “not stock in future”.

A spokesman for the store clarified the connection between the dolls and the sign was completely unintentional.

Golliwogs are considered offensive due to their history as a blackface motif, in which people of colour are depicted as comically idiotic and as plantation slaves.

The accusation that the city is the “most racist city in Australia” is just an off the cuff comment by a known whiner.  It has no statistical basis.  Golliwog controversies keep cropping up thoughout the English speaking world as a result of attempts by Leftists to make something offensive out of a children's popular soft toy. I had a golliwog myself as a kid over 60 years ago

“Words can’t describe this behaviour in the 21st century. I can understand it in the 1960s but to do it today is inexcusable.”

The same might be said of the Aborigines who do not behave in a responsible manner in the modern World.

This 21st century has turned out a bunch of little snowflakes who demand Big Brother protect their pathetic little backsides 24/7 and that their playpens be always avlible when ever their little feelings are hurt

I wonder why dark-skinned infant and Cabbage Patch dolls aren't racist. Maybe someone should try and sell a "whiteface" golliwog, see what hits the fan then.

I wonder if blacks and other minorities are generally pissed off at Leftards for describing them as protected species that can't stand up for themselves. They should be.
