American Girl Releases Line of Diverse Dolls + Collabs with Cushnie et Ochs

https://instagram.com/p/CULi1DYh26K


American Girl has released a new line of dolls called World By Us. The dolls have diverse backgrounds and social justice hobbies such as fighting for racial justice. One of the dolls is Black, one Latina, and one biracial (Black and white).

Predictably, racists are pissed off about this! Some fans are also miffed that two of the diverse dolls are light-skinned and appear white-passing.

American Girl also collaborated with Cushnie et Ochs to design modern-day takes on the classic American Girl historical characters. They will be auctioned off for a fundraiser; if you are rich, you can bid on them until September 26th.
