I heard on the radio that a woman had criticised someone for selling golliwogs and said that it was offensive and racist. What a load of rubbish. Showing off and selling golliwogs has nothing to do with black people. They were originally made to represent the blackened figures of chimney sweeps in 19th century England.
I say to the person who is selling these golliwogs, keep selling them and I hope people will support you and buy them. Don’t listen to this idiot.
