Rage on!
When I was a kid and the AG books were first appearing, my grandmother bought me the Addy books. Loved them to death (literally! poor books, their spines are broken!).
Then I asked for the Addy doll for birthday/Christmas and got Kirsten instead. Asked why, and was told that she thought that Kirsten was "more appropriate" because various idiodic family members thought that I would be better off with a white doll, as, after all, no white child should ever have a doll representing a POC.
