[Ed. – Looks pretty racist]
Academics must be running out of books to ban.
Diversity experts are so desperate to kill the darlings of children’s literature that they’ll write their own fiction just to smear Dr. Seuss.
Just look at the title of a “study” published in a peer-reviewed literature journal last month: “The Cat is Out of the Bag: Orientalism, Anti-Blackness, and White Supremacy in Dr. Seuss’s Children’s Books.” It makes you wonder whether it isn’t part of some elaborate prank.
Theodor Seuss Geisel wasn’t perfect, and you don’t have to tell any falsehoods to recognize that certain themes in his writing and political cartoons are cause for concern. Black characters in his books are depicted in indigenous garb and Asians have buck teeth. Worse, he created anti-Japanese propaganda for the Army during World War II, once depicting the Japanese as monkeys and referring to them by the common derogatory term “Japs.” He even drew a cartoon portraying Japanese Americans as traitors.
