Stuff I Found: does the banana make my racist Rastafarian doll look more racist?

Vankleek Hill Fair

On Saturday I posted some photos to my Facebook page of the kids at the 168th Vankleek Hill Fair, and joked about how they won little stuffed dogs, but I had really been hoping they’d trade up for one of the mostly-racist Rastafarian banana dolls that I couldn’t believe were just hanging there… like, dozens of them.

Well… surprise! They went back on Sunday and Andrew won this for me. It’s a banana unzipping to reveal a Rastafarian-esque guy.

tl/dr: it’s a stuffed brown guy jumping out of a banana.

So, in your opinion, is it:
1. Racist
3. Really racist
4. David Duke crazy racist
5. Forget about it, smoke a giant bowl of weed, and get introspective
6. Hey, that’s ^^^ a stereotype and borderline racist.
7. Whatever, it’s a doll, rational people called Bill Clinton “America’s first black President”… honestly, it doesn’t get much weirder than that.
