'yeah, the stupid golliwog'
Fuzzy-haired black dolls with smiley red mouths made popular in children's stories by Enid Blyton, such as Noddy. The toys were mass produced, and even golliwog biscuits were made! But alas, in recent 'politically correct' years, golliwog numbers reduced, and were even banned in some areas because they were considered 'racist'. Golliwog biscuits were renamed "Scalliwags" and the toys disappeared from toy store shelves. But the occasional golliwog can still be found in specialised teddy bear and doll shops, as well as hand knitted ones at market stalls.
Hey, look at this golliwog! How cute! But wait a minute... it's black. Oh no, we can't have black dolls. That's racist! Only white dolls should be available. Then EVERYONE will be happy!
A predominantly UK expression which originally was a children's literature character and type of black doll but which eventually became to be used as a jibe against people with dark skin (black people
), most commonly Afro-Caribbeans.
Naomi Campbell reportedly assaulted a British Airways employee after he referred to her as a "Golliwog supermodel".
The Golliwogg was a black character in children's books in the late 19th century usually depicted as a type of rag doll. It was produced as a children's toy called the "golliwog", and had great popularity in North America, Europe and Australia up to the 1970s. The doll is characterised by black skin, eyes rimmed in white, large red lips, and frizzy hair. In recent years, changing attitudes when it comes to race relations have greatly reduced the popularity and sales of golliwogs as toys. The Golliwogg is seen as a very racist depiction of black people in the same vein as Mammies , black face and Picaninnies. This , along with the fact that "Wog" is a pejorative term for people of african descent have made the Golliwogg a socially unacceptable toy.
