Mannequins Caged

Debenham's, Grafton Centre, Cambridge 160808Surplus mannequins are crowded and caged out of the way in an ugly building; echoes of inhuman treatment to real people.

All are white, except for one silver figure.  Do mannequins here reflect racial stereotyping?  Of 244 figures in Cambridge shopping centres recently 80% were white, 12% black, 5% brown and 4% other (silver, gold, transparent etc.).  Is this the same as the customer/population profile?  See post of  14th December 2014 on gender.
