    I complained to a shop in my local town (proper out in the sticks) last month, cus they still had the Golliwog that was on Robinsons Jam Jars from back in the day, in the window...

    It was a fucking kiddies sweet shop too!

    I pointed it out to my mrs, like "What the fuck! Look at that! They're taking the fucking piss!"

    She didn't even know what they were & even that they were anything derogatory...

    I told her she should be ashamed of herself & continued to inform her of just how much blacker than her I am & that she would be receiving a Giant Gollywog with a Swastika sewn onto its forehead for Christmas.

    :D

    illegal to call em golliwogs now. they're just known as gollies. i think that must be intentional. noone in their right mind would think thats a good idea. they're not illegal though.

    my mum used to have some african statues that she called nignogs. she is in no way racist but had these since she was young when everything wasnt so pc.

    i got a bollocked at school when i was about 7 because we did some work that involved pictures of similar statues and i said "oh, nignogs, my mum has some of them."

    A guy at college brought a golly cup in for some charity fundraiser last year.
    He's a little slow so didn't know the whole background of the golly ect..
    My lecturer at the time who accepted the cup was herself black lmao.

    Was standing in the smoking area with her puffing away having a laugh at the whole thing. You couldn't write that kind of situation. Apart from just now, because i did.

    fuck sake ..

    apart from the name ... golliwog theres fuck all wrong with them. you get white dolls, so why not have a black one.. the people that look at ablack teddy bear and associate it with racism are the ones who are fucked up.

    political correctness has gone fuckin insane, were almost made to feel racist even if we arnt. shakespere said . ." Things are neither good nor bad but thinking makes it so." ..

    now lets look at it sensibley .. you get white humans, and black humans.. you get white dolls, and you should get black dolls, its trying to have human characteristics so why not..

    if anything it shoudl help chrildren to grow up and feel more comfortable around black people and familirise them.

    the name is racist, now they are called gollies.. and hanging them is disgraceful.. and the shop owner needs a kick in the bollocks.

    but golliwogs are just fuckin dolls based on black people, who actually exist. its all a big subconcoius ploy that ends up making you abit racist even if your not its fucked up.

    what about those china dolls, based on chinese women. ?

    i think it was probably to do with the terms 'wog' and 'gollywog' being used in a derogatory way by racists that forced action.

    political correctness has gone balmy though.

    Apparently it all started when Enyd Blyton (sp) used them in a Noddy book in a derogatory way.

    That might be true, it might not. I saw it on TV though, so it must be true.

    Not true.

    Do more research, look into who created them & why...

    I'm kinda with you on the rest of it, but its slightly out of context.
