The Barbie Bandits


Have you heard about the two young women who robbed a bank in Atlanta recently? They're known as the "Barbie Bandits," most likely because they're young and white. It was apparently an inside job, and authorites caught up with the pair in a couple of days, but what if they were of another shade?

Edrea Davis shares her perspective, writing:

The media called them "Barbie Bandits," but I'd bet that if the two women were black and 16-like everyone thought -they would have been called teen thugs, probably would have been associated with gang activity, and the public would have yelled for them to be tried as adults.

What do you think?

You already know! I could hear the story now...

"Black Female Hooligans terrorized an Atlanta financial institution..."

Of course some form of the term 'terror' would be thrown in there, as 'terror' has become synonymous with anything anti-western (white).
