Blacks and Golliwogs

There are actually some people in sub-saharan Africa who look like golliwogs, in fact golliwog was originally an Egyptian name for these people. The Egyptians used to make golliwog dolls for their children, and British sailers introduced golliwog dolls into the U.K. I think that it is very racist of negros to object to the racial characteristics of these sub-saharan people. You occasionally see them in London, usually students.
