The company that publishes Dr. Seuss’ children’s books said it will stop selling six of his titles because they contain racist and insensitive images since the books “portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong.” President Biden removed any mention of Dr. Seuss in his presidential proclamation for Read Across America Day, which is celebrated on the author’s birthday.
It may seem absurd to say, but the truth is Discrimination Made America Great! How? Each new group of immigrants from Europe came to America to seek freedom. But they all spoke different languages like the story from the Buble of the Tower of Babel. Each was discriminated against fairly insofar as the last one off the boat was always the focus. The discrimination compelled them to learn English to get employment. I did an interview in Germany and I explained that it was the reverse of the Biblical story, for once everyone spoke the same language, then they intermarried. So ask an American what they are and they will typically respond half-German and half-Italian or whatever. You rarely see intermarriage in Europe because of the different languages.
The discrimination created unity, whereas now we are turning back in the cycle to disunity, divided by politics and all sorts of classifications that render a person as part of some small group rather than part of the whole.
Perhaps the next book to be banned will be the Bible because it is also racist and is offensive in this new day of being WOKE where this political correctness has gone mad with respect to gender and orders women to be subservient to their husbands and to care for the home. There are over 100 passages that offend someone on gender alone. Where does this end? I suppose all history must be banned for it offended someone at some time along the way. It takes someone with thick skin to even be in politics. Anyone sensitive to criticism better stay inside in a self-imposed lockdown.
