This video has Barbie talking with her Black friend, Nikki, about racial bias and discrimination. ”There is a huge movement going on. Millions of people across the world are standing up to fight against racism, and they’re doing this because too often and for such a long time, people have been treated unfairly, and in some cases even hurt by others, because of the color of their skin,” she says. Nikki listens patiently, then proceeds to enlighten Barbie about her own experiences with discrimination as a young Black woman, offering a story about a sticker-selling incident as an example.
