Dr. Seuss books are seen as racist for illustrating racial stereotypes. And yet today (14-04-21), the BBC diversity department complains that Luther, played by Idriss Elba, doesn't sufficiently fit his racial stereotype by not eating Carribean food and wearing Carribean clothes. Why can't we just let everyone be?

So sad when none of the books actually caused any damage to kids nor did I hear a kid become racist because of the books. The creators have been bullied by ignorant and all too sensitive people. They think that’s gonna stop racism. I mean there are far more pressing matters that harm kids, like human trafficking, drugging kids at a young age.... this alone makes criminals, not stable kids, kids with depression... i mean common lets not be stupid here!!! I read cinderella books around 500 times when i was young. Never for once did i question why cinderella was white. The thought of racism never occurred to me. I had friends from every colour. I treated everyone as my friend. Lets not make something out of nothing.

Leftists like Colbert. Being called a "racist" in 2021 America is the equivalent of being called a "witch" in 1690s New England. It's meaningless.

‘They’ is Faux New’s secret enemy, who is a shadow movement of liberals who are so powerful they have infiltrated the government and are canceling conservative views, and yet are so weak they are no match for ‘the real truth’ they preach. It’s a bunch of lies, smoke, and mirrors, preying on people’s fears and ignoring the real issues.

Or. Here me out, we don’t have to literally remove everything someone in the past does because that’s falsifying history and ignoring the mistakes of the past? Not like the books were written by Hitler. It’s also amazing to me that people just proclaim something is racist and end it it there🤦🏽‍♂️ No dude. YOU thinking something is racism doesn’t mean it is

@Matthew Koon if i told you to paint your house a different color because i found that the current color was offensive to asian people, you would prob say, nah im not a racist and neither is the paint on my house. But what if by keeping the current paint you and your family were blasted for being racist by social media outlets.

Who are you talking about? The man in the video or Dr. Seuss? If its Dr. Seuss, then he is a force for good. He was known as an anti racist who wrote books for liberals in the 1950s and 60s when racism was actually an issue. He promoted reading for kids in a time where illiteracy was an issue. These SJWs are a joke and cringy. Instead of being angry that the Middle East is still getting airstriked by bombs or the fact that there are people in Africa who still practice modern day slavery, they are getting offended by Mr. Potato Head. 🤢🤮

Cancel Cultures is so ridiculous. How arrogant one must be to think that such books were not able to screw your own childhood and development but will do so for future generations?? You really think children of the future are such dumb snowflakes? ...Well, with an upbringing like yours, they probably will be. This is called self fulfilling prophecy. Congrats! I already see you canceling all history books as there is some weird stuff in them too. 🤦‍♂️ Life is hard, there are some lessons to be learned from bad things too, you know. Of course you know that as you had the privilege to learn them with no restrictions. Give your children the same chance!

It’s the Nazi Holocaust all over again. But the thing that needs to be addressed is children’s books that everyone reads but whiny bitches decided they’re offensive now

Today, late shows are just 100% pure state propaganda. Look at this weird looking old well paid man telling you that the sky is purple, that a rock can be a bird, and that Dr. Seuss is not cancelled. Making people believe a distorted version of what is just simply obvious. At this point, if you are a grown person and you believe that, you need help right now.

Anyone can get offended by anything. So should we ban everything? An atheist can say he's offended by religion and a religious man can say he's offended by atheists. If you are offended by something, such as a book, don't read it. If you don't like how another person lives, stop looking at them.

As me and several thousands of voters will sue and get you fired. Please go ahead a laugh. Will see who is laughing at whom. When are we going to see grinding on another guy on public TV. Also how is WOP more educating than children's books. Hope when you may die as you age. That God just sits and laughs His butt off. Then pushes the red button and waves at you as you head down town. That is only a one way pass.
