I honestly don't know what is wrong with the "Mexican Barbie"... I mean, with the doll itself.

A doll that represent a country, should be "typical" (not sure about the term "stereotypical")... a Chihuahua, a beautiful pink dress... not wonder that as authentic Mexicans, the people of the Embassy didn't see anything wrong with the doll.

By that account, I never saw anything negative with, say, Speedy Gonzalez...

I hope it is not that Mexican Americans want Mexicans to be portrayed looking like Farrah Fawcett and Captain John Smith... or dressing as if going to the golf course.

But what do I know...?

By the way, if some one wants to blame Mattel for something, is for participating - in joint venture with some British - in the global fraud of the GT200 "molecular detector", of arms, drugs, explossives... toys of plastic, disguised as "high technology devices" that were sold by the dozens of thousends to guilible police and armed forces in the Third World.

Now, the term "Third World" is correctly used in here, because you have to be extremely ingnorant of science and imbecile enough, to fall in this 2 + 2 scam.

And I have to declare, that something very BAD is happening right now in the Mexican army, as they did fall in this ridiculous scam..
