‘Racist’ Dr. Seuss Mural to be Replaced

God forbid a drawing looks like a type of person.

    All depictions of all other ethnic peoples in their traditional dress by whites are always “racist” and never okay, if even ONE ‘person of color’ says so.
    I can wait for Theodor “Seuss” Geisel to get his comeuppance for his reckless appropriations of the rich and diverse “Whoville” civilization.

    Uh oh, more cultural insensitivity ahead!
    “Geisel began work on Horton Hears a Who! in the fall of 1953. The book’s main theme, “a person’s a person no matter how small”, was Geisel’s reaction to his visit to Japan, where the importance of the individual was an exciting new concept (in Japan).”

    He wrote anti Japanese war propaganda in WW2. I guess we should erase all traces of….WW2

      Yes, the propaganda against Japan initiated the Japanese colonialist invasions years prior to it being written or drawn. Historians suspect the involvement of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown, last seen in a Delorean DMC-12 car.

    if that is meant to be a Chinese coolie then why is he drawn wearing Japanese geta? for that matter how do we know the cartoon character is not a down on his luck Italian cartoon character with taped eyes?
