Elliott Udoh, Black Barbie
by Elliott Udoh
America, we know how much you love your toys
From the makers of American girl doll and Barbie
Mattel: We are so excited to present our brand new
You can have your very own right now!
She comes in six different shades
And four different body types with our brand new “extra grown” model:
She’s 14 going on 40
And she’s nothing but a toy,
Pretty brown plastic in a box.
Feel free to Manipulate, mold, and use her to your liking.
We’ll include 2 extra bundles of weave
the inability to speak proper English
and a baaaaad attitude
On our limited edition dolls:
if you press the button on her left hand,
our brand new “angry Black girl” mode is activated...
Our custom voice box comes with extra ratchet,
ghetto vernacular dripping off of every word she speaks.
Feel free to copy her funny made-up language
It’s only ghetto when she does it anyway.
If you call right now we’ll include some extra special daddy issues
Guaranteed to wreak plenty of havoc.
Lilly S. From Connecticut writes “I love my doll, she’s so loud… and exotic and crazy”
Karen G from Kansa describes her doll as “very… different”
America, you’re going to love her, guaranteed!
