Just recently, Prada pulled from the market its bag charms that featured a darker skinned doll with big, red lips. The figure brought about much criticism, as reported by TMZ: https://www.tmz.com/2018/12/15/prada-purse-bag-sambo-figurine-racist/ PRADA'SAMBO' FIGURINE ...Triggers Cries of Racism Prada just pulled a bonehead blunder that a lot of people are calling racist. The high-end Manhattan shop put this purse in its window with a Sambo-like doll attached. People went nuts on social media once the image was posted. Some felt it resembled a Sambo figure ... others say it resembled a monkey and some felt it was a cross between the two. It's pretty incredible that the folks at Prada were this tone-deaf because it's hard to imagine how they didn't see the wave of criticism that would befall them. The company issued a statement Friday saying it "abhors racist imagery." It went on to say the figure was meant as "fantasy charms." It's clearly a bad fantasy. The figurines have been 86'd from Prada. This is the "Little Black Sambo" character: ***I will say that as a black woman, Little Black Sambo was the first thing I thought about when I saw Prada's bag charms for the first time.
