New Black Barbies!?!

I have a dream, that one day, little white girls will be playing with little black dolls and calling them beautiful! I have a dream today. At long last, Black Barbies for everyone! Mattel recently announced that they are starting a new ethnic line of dolls called S.I.S. (So in style) that will have features that more closely resemble black women, with fuller lips and all. The three dolls, names Trichelle, Grace and Kara have little sisters and are varied in both personality and skin tone. Although I haven't seen any afro, corn-rows or braids yet, I am still excited to see the dolls. Baby steps, I guess :)
