    Cultural Diversity Is A-Dora-ble

    | Ontario, Canada |

    (A customer wearing very affluent clothing walks over holding a “Dora the Explorer” plush doll.)

    Customer: “Hello, can you help me?”

    Me: “Certainly, what I can I do for you?”

    Customer: “I’m looking one of these, but in white.”

    Me: “Oh, you mean like this?” *shows the customer a similar plush toy but wearing a white dress*

    Customer: “NO! NO! One that is WHITE!”

    Me: *puzzled* “I’m sorry, but this is the only other one we have in stock…did you see it on our website? Was it another style of clothing?”

    Customer: “NO! WHITE, LIKE ME!” *points at her face*

    Me: “You mean…a Caucasian Dora?”

    Customer: “YES! Where do you have them?”

    Me: “Ma’am, Dora was designed to help people from different backgrounds come to understand their common ground; Dora therefore doesn’t come in a different skin tone. She is what she is.”

    Customer: “WHAT? That is RIDICULOUS! Give me a WHITE DORA!”

    Me: “I’m very sorry ma’am, but they simply don’t exist…”

    Customer: “Fine! I’ll take my business elsewhere!” *storms out*
