I Still Love My Golly

I am sorry if you find it offensive. I had a golly that as a young child I liked as much as I did my teddy bear but since then I have met Africans that I mostly respect! (I don't respect all my English contacts) but I have also met many Indians (not native Americans) that are selfish and deserving of the bad press that the early gollywogs got! But as it looks you seem to think it's the Negros (or any Africans) that are the ones that the golly is portraying.

Barbie is a completely sexist doll but no worse than a gollywog and still loved by many children as was (and still is) the gollywog.
