Mexico Barbie: Is She Racist?

by at .

Barbie is totally making a comeback.

Just not in the way Mattel might want.

First, Barbie without makeup was exposed as one seriously ugly creature.

Now, Internet users are taking exception to Mexico Barbie, a member of the Dolls of the World collection who many feel is just an example of a racist stereotype. Mostly because she's holding a chihuahua:

"@Mattel, maybe #MexicoBarbie should come with a taco instead of a chihuahua- you know, just to be really clear," wrote one angry Twitter user.

Do you agree with this assessment? Is Mexico Barbie, as depicted, racist?
