Another classic example of "white people problems" manifested itself in California, recently.
It's the case of the porcelain dolls being left in front of homes with children who looked similar to the dolls.
This got so serious that it was all over the national news. The families were "spooked" , local law enforcement was in full investigative mode, and white people all over the country were worrying about the horror of having dolls left in front of their homes. (Meanwhile, in the real world.)
“Is it a prank? Is there some specific motivation?” Orange County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Jeff Hallock told KTLA-TV. “Obviously, there’s an indication by some the parents that the dolls resemble their daughters. We’re talking about children here. Anything that has the potential to involve children causes us some concern.”
I need a break!
First of all, porcelain dolls are pretty expensive. I am guessing that if someone just left an expensive porcelain doll at a black person's front door, the first thing they would do is fins an appraiser or the pawn shop. White folks, on the other hand, call the police. "Officer, there is a strange looking doll at my door".....Let me stop.
Anyway, I am glad to report that the mystery of the dolls has been solved. So now the national news media can start focusing on some other news. You know, like the stuff going on in the Middle East and Eastern Ukraine.
The poor woman who was responsible for just trying to be a nice neighbor is now embarrassed and distraught over the entire episode.
"The woman, who attended church with most of the girls' families, said she did not mean to scare anyone, he said.
"She felt like some of the girls would enjoy the dolls," Hallock said.
She has daughters of her own who are too old to play with dolls, he said.
The woman said she wanted the dolls to resemble the children who received them and matched their hair and eye color, Hallock said.
After delivering a few of the dolls, the woman noticed on social media that some families were frightened, he said. She stopped leaving the dolls when some parents called for a criminal investigation." [Source]
"She felt really embarrassed..."
No charges were filed, and the sheriff's department has closed its investigation, chalking it up to an act of good will gone wrong..."
Or, just more "white people problems".
