the white doll wearing the afro hair could be a black player irl. the white doll wearing the afro hair could be a 10 year old japanese girl with no experience or knowledge on cultural appropriation. the white doll wearing the afro hair could be a white player who grew up playing with black barbies. the black doll wearing the afro hair could be a 12 year old mexican girl who admires black culture. the black doll wearing the afro hair could be a white player who also admires and loves black culture. the black doll wearing the afro hair could be a black woman who finally had the courage to use her black doll in sys.yes i’m 100% positive there are dolls who are using the afro hair and maybe changed their dolls skin tone just to “match” the theme and maybe score higher. (which is not right and highly offensive) but at the end of the day, we don’t know who is behind the dolls we see in the voting booth and to downvote and get angry and offended just doesnt make sense and sounds extremely tiring. you cant generalize and assume. you cant expect literally everyone to comply with (y)our beliefs and/or what you think is right. thats just exhausting and unrealistic. not everyone reads the forum every chance they get and since majority of black dolls have stated and agreed to being exhausted from trying to educate everyone (which i don’t blame you) then pick and choose your battles at this point because google exists for those with questions and you literally have zero control over how someone plays their game and you have zero knowledge of what ethnicity someone is vs what their doll looks like. like a few dolls have said on here it is normal to be a non poc who grew up playing with a black barbie. and those people and people who admire black culture and black contributions should be able to use a black doll and black features if they want to right or not right? does your doll have to look just like you for you to be playing the game in an acceptable manner or can you create your own character because it’s a game? i think black is beautiful and i believe i can create bomb af looks using a black doll but i’m not allowed to because i’m mexican and my hair is straight? i’m not looking for answers to my questions because i don’t need them. i’m contributing a different perspective and whether you understand or not is fine i just hope we can all be a little bit more compassionate and understanding to both parties (poc and non poc) especially because we have no idea who is on the other side of the screen and where they come from.
