Educators Organization Calls For Dr. Seuss' Books to be Canceled for 'Anti-Blackness, White Supremacy'

Well, it happened. Sixty-four years after his creation, the Cat in the Hat turned into a racist.

For over 20 years, March 2 has been recognized as Read Across America Day in honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Now, some useless, far-Left educator group known as Learning for Justice is "demanding" that Dr. Seuss be canceled because of his, wait for it, "racial undertones." According to The Daily Wire, gutless-run school districts like Loudoun County Public Schools, one prominent in Virginia, are already taking the marching orders, telling its teachers to "avoid connecting Read Across America Day with Dr. Seuss.”

After carefully reviewing books like One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, Loudoun County Public Schools found that Dr. Seuss is not suitable for “culturally responsive” learning.

Here's the statement. Get ready, it's good:

“Realizing that many schools continue to celebrate ‘Read Across America Day’ in partial recognition of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, it is important for us to be cognizant of research that may challenge our practice in this regard. As we become more culturally responsive and racially conscious, all building leaders should know that in recent years there has been research revealing radical undertones in the books written and the illustrations drawn by Dr. Seuss.”

Oh, I see. Just like that, no more Fox in Socks for those students. He's gone.

Per The Daily Wire's report, Learning for Justice claimed that Dr. Seuss’s books are riddled with “orientalism, anti-blackness, and white supremacy.” Got that? Too much anti-blackness, and white supremacy in Oh Say Can You Say?

That's not all. After hours of reading, Learning for Justice found that too many of the non-white characters in Dr. Seuss’ literature are male.

“It’s also important to note that each of the non-white characters is male and that they are all ‘presented in subservient, exotified, or dehumanized roles,’ especially in relation to white characters,” the organization says.

How dare he make Horton the Elephant — a non-white, blue elephant — a male. Shame on Dr. Seuss.

Some of you may consider this going too far — to that, Learning for Justice says stop being a "racial apologist." Oh, and a "bigot."

"Learning for Justice claims that anyone who defends Dr. Seuss’ problematic work is a racial 'apologist' and is making excuses for why 'bigotry doesn’t matter," Chrissy Clark reports.

Hmm, the Vlad Vladikoff fans might be racists.

Mr. Potato Head survived his initial cancelation. Will Dr. Seuss? Doubt it.

By the way, Dr. Seuss is fantastic. Order his books now. You will enjoy them.
