Dr. Seuss Enterprises ceasing 6 books due to racist images
« on: March 02, 2021, 08:38:54 AM »
As adored as Dr. Seuss is by millions around the world for the positive values in many of his works, including environmentalism and tolerance, there has been increasing criticism in recent years over the way Blacks, Asians and others are drawn in some of his most beloved children’s books, as well as in his earlier advertising and propaganda illustrations.

Now you're really going to pisss off the racists and the clowns who think that they aren't racists [because they were friends with their black maids growing up] and Donald Trump and Hershey Walker   :lol:

I support this move. Those things should be left in a time where they were accepted. That is not today.

Don't get your panties in a wad because your family couldn't afford Dr. Seuss books.

Yet, you laughed when you watched this on your black and white TV.



And you had no problem when this guy read Dr. Seuss. He called it a classic.

1) What does this have to do with affording a book?

2) I don't think I ever laughed while watching Dr. Seuss, nothing funny about it.

You know y04185 suffers from a brain chemical imbalance which causes him to make ridiculous arguments.
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”

Fox News is highly upset about this. They have yet to post about Trump taking the vaccine
