Transcending Tropes: The Transcendent Stereotype
Item for consideration, "Panchito," a cut-out, dress-up paper doll kit from Spain I found on "Pillpat"'s amazing Flickr site. Football player (!, in Spain!), Moroccan (?), Policeman, Dandy, or Cop. The range is amazing and anything but aligned with atypical tropes of Africanicity in a European context. More on this soon.
