Play Time - Barbie?

I've always had a hate on Barbie.  I don't know if it was because Barbie never looked like me, or because I never had the house, car and clothes for her.  Maybe it was because my parents never had the funds or real interest in giving me one, but even though I hated her, I was secretly kinda fascinated too.  Later when I was a teen I saw how unrealistic her image was to girls.  You know the deal, unrelatable, a hint of racism, too skinny, impossible unrealistic body, too perfect yada yada, but now that just kind of sounds like Naomi Campbell.  And Naomi doesn't scare me.  I know what models go through, and Top Model taught me they certainly don't look like that in real life.  Hey!  I just realized I watch Top Model and still feel hot, so now think its safe to venture into Barbie Land and get to know my Barbie sisters for a bit of playtime fun.  A couple of years back I bought a Black Barbie to stick it to the Man, and I thought I share with ya'll some ethnic Barbie love.  Look at what I found.
Saving my favoirte till last.

Lets Start at the Beginning.  The first Black Barbie!
