From TheGrio.com:

Kelly Motzko didn’t set out to court controversy when she entered a Target to find a gift for a four-year-old girl. Naturally she found herself in the toy aisle but she was not at all pleased by what she encountered. Among the many Barbies of various races in that toy aisle, there was a black Barbie that stood out for all the wrong reasons.

Her dress was cut down the front to accentuate her noticeable cleavage. According to Motzko, a St. Paul, Minn.-based behavioral specialist, there were Barbies of other ethnicities on the aisle but the African-American Barbie was the only one that appeared highly sexualized.

“The only Barbie wearing such revealing clothing was the black Barbie,” says Motzko, who is white. “I found that upsetting. I was offended. It was just an offensive thing for the Barbie to be dressed like that [in the first place] and, then to be the only one of that skin color, I found that offensive.”

Motzko, who has worked with kids for over eight years, is very well aware of how such images can impact a young girl’s self esteem. “I have worked a lot with young girls to help build self-esteem and self-confidence so I know how many societal pressures there are and how they influence these girls’ self-image so, when I walked in this aisle and…I saw this Barbie, I got angry and I was just upset,” says Motzko.

The Minnesota native was so enraged that she contacted Mattel. They informed her that the Barbie was part of the Barbie Basics Black Label Collection, which is an assortment of 12 models, including three African-Americans, wearing variations of the black dress. The collection, they told her, was geared towards the adult collector and not little girls.
