If it's that racially insensitive, they probably shouldn't be selling these at all!

Oprah Winfrey's trip to Australia has allegedly brought attention to a "racist" doll being sold down under, and caused the shop owners to withdraw them from display!

The talk show hostess is schedule to attend a cocktail party at The Dafel Dolls and Bears Shop in Melbourne, but when representatives from Harpo Productions arrived for a preliminary interview, they noticed that one of the golliwog style doll, dressed as a "Mamee" washer woman, was politically incorrect, and allegedly asked for it to be removed!

The store's owner claims to have signed a confidentiality agreement that bans him from talking about the situation, but did reveal:

"Oprah's people came…and yes it was discussed."

Wow!

If it's that racially insensitive, they probably shouldn't be selling these at all!

Check out a picture of the doll in question (above)!

What do U think?? Is it racist??
