What the hell is up with this? Why do these black children think the black doll is the ugly and bad doll, and why would they say this when they also identify with the black doll.
This seriously just made the day way gloomier than it needed to be.
It begs the question if the children are trying to live up to the (non-existent) expectations of the researcher. What's their color? If white, then that would perhaps explain the behavior in part. I cling to the hope that it would be the case, even though that has some other negative consequences, of course.

The last one ends with this conversation:
Researcher: Why don't you like yourself?
Child: Because I'm black.
