    Think about the biggest racist influences in the world today---the biggest white-supremacist influencers, suppressors of minorities, poisonous, malignant propagandizers who actively work to oppress any and all non-Caucasian peoples everywhere. Who are they?

    The Nazi Party? No.

    The Ku Klux Klan? No.

    The Aryan Nations? No.

    The American Freedom Party? No.

    The most insidious, evil, and diabolically racist influences in the world today---the ones who warp the minds of children and destroy all goodness and brotherhood everywhere, are far, far worse than any of the piffling, insignificant groups listed above. The worst, absolute worst, racist influences in the world today are------

    Dr. Seuss, Babar, Curious George, and Laura Ingalls Wilder.

    I'd agree that children are the most impressionable. And Dr. Seuss always segmented population by looks and size and beliefs and reinforced the differences in all the stories. And Laura Ingalls Wilder is documentation of white privilege. But they should all remain in libraries for reference.

    I highly doubt that Dr. Seuss, with his whimsical characterizations, and Ms. Wilder, with her sweet childhood memories, had the same intentions as Nathan Bedford Forrest burning down towns or Julius Streicher publishing his violent missives.

    I agree that this is a wrong-headed approach. We have one extreme that seems to identify the problem in every possible nook and cranny. We have another extreme that says there's no real issue. The sooner both sides can come together and face it head on, the sooner the extremes will lose influence, I think. As soon as one side points to their opposing extreme, they need to call out the extreme errors on their own side. We need to bring it in and work on this.

    Dr. Seuss Enterprises is making the decision. They are paid for their decision-making abilities on what to publish profitably and their time.

    Was Julius Streicher a writer of Children's books?

    Well, if you ever take the time to read the books you will come to find that growing up as she did and where she did was certainly not about 'white privilege'.

    You know, there are times (today was one of them) when I feel like simply turning off all this junk---computers, cell phones, televisions, radios, newspapers, magazines, the whole schmeer---and never again seeking communication with the outside world. It has reached the point where the madness is so permeated into the society that simply stating that the sky is blue and water is wet calls down the abuse of thousands on yourself.

    I remember early on when people would talk about the internet and say, "The Information Highway is going to change the world." I had no idea what they meant. I don't think they did either. I hear you. It's out of hand.

    What book series will they come after next? Dr Seus is pretty innocuous so people will generally accept it and let these woketivists get away with it.

    I'm betting eventually they'll come after C.S Lewis and the Chronicles of Narnia. Telmarines are obviously Arab analogues and therefore Lewis was guilty of racism and must be cancelled as well.

    "All Creatures Great and Small" popped into my mind: There are no black people presented hence it must be about 'white privilege'.

    My beloved Madeline will be charged with white privilege. After all, she's a little girl in boarding school. Such silliness.

    Yeah....they'll probably ban Clifford the Big Red Dog because no cats are represented. :rolleyes:

    I am reminded of a quote from one of the Desert Fathers:

    My friends, that day has arrived.

    I'm not the one equating Dr. Seuss with racists like Julius Streicher. In fact, I said that Seuss was decidedly un-like guys like Streicher. (shrug) Don't come down on me---go talk to the ones wanting to ban Dr. Seuss. It's ridiculous.

    "Critics also have faulted the "Curious George" books for their premise of a white man bringing home a monkey from Africa."
    :mmh:Uhhhh...Why is this a problem? Have they never heard of zoos? Should only people of colour bring home monkeys from Africa?
