Affirmative Action Mocha figurine soon to be released White Playhouse

One of the world's largest toy manufacturers, in the throws of economic collapse , in a last ditch effort to save their hide or at least their hair, has announced a new line of products. Their marketing department explained that the recent branding success of the Democratic party and the Republican attempt at imitation suggest that success in the US is a darker shade than pale.

Thus the innovative line of affirmative action figures is the last best hope of a failing toy company. The new line's release coincided with Black History Month. The George Washington Carver- Mr Peanut action figure equipped with top hat, cane and scientific microscope proved to be a bit of a disappointment amid the peanut butter scare. The subsequent Cassius claymation Muhammad Ali had the greatest initial appeal but soon got tied up in patent court proceedings and homeland security litigation.

Finally the company unveiled the Barack Obama Affirmative Action figure whose fictionasl bio includes tantalizing details about multi continental heritage, scholarships to only the best schools and then an unbelievable rise to the White House. Sixty-eight percent of American family's bought the mocha figurine and many ordered the not yet available White Playhouse.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
