"Another fact that many people are unaware of is that Dr. Seuss’s illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes. Open one of his books (If I Ran a Zoo or And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, for example), and you’ll see the racist mockery in his art. Grace Hwang Lynch’s School Library Journal article, “Is the Cat in the Hat Racist? Read Across America Shifts Away from Dr. Seuss and Toward Diverse Books,” reports on Katie Ishizuka’s work analyzing the minstrel characteristics and trope nature of Seuss’s characters. Scholar Philip Nel’s new book, Was the Cat in the Hat Black? The Hidden Racism of Children’s Literature, and the Need for Diverse Books, further explores and shines a spotlight on the systemic racism and oppression in education and literature." - Liz Phipps Soeiro.
Hard to take someone seriously who cannot spell.

A thoughtful person might say "Wow, racism is so deeply ingrained in every aspect of our society, that things I've never considered might have a racist connotation". You guys take the opposite tack "If the racism wasn't obvious to me, then racism in general must not be real". Giving you the benefit of the doubt: you're not thinkers. More likely, you're also bigots.

I think it was Sharpton who suggested we bury ni**ger. Any language denograding a race should stop. So today we are executing the favorite word of the liberal party. Rest in peace.
Never happen. It’s the liberals favourite go to word.

So what !!!
All things being equal by democrat standards we don't have to comply with rules or laws we don't like !!!
Its our job as citizens to tell the government what to do !!! Try to remember they work for us in our system not the other way around !!! We know democrats would like to change that and require everyone to comply, conform and obey with whatever sick and twisted policy they want to enact !!!

Its time to usher in new leadership and get rid of these old rules laws and ideas that no long serve the public well !!! Its rules and laws and organizations like the one you mentioned that cause exclusion and division !!! Its not about in or out of the hood !!! Its about people having a stick or their head up their butt !!! That is the overwhelming problem particular to democrats and brought into focus by the "squad" !!! If we can grab them by the feet and pull, listening for that popping sound, then they will have a chance to hear another POV and we will be on the right path again !!!

Especially when it comes to calling people racist or misogynist. Here in Maryland, which has a 2-1 Democrat vs Republican voter registration, every time in the last few decades a woman or African American runs for governor, they lose. The Democrats need to clean up their own act before calling other people names.

i’m pretty sure they emerge from the womb saying ‘racist!!’ instead of ‘waaah!!’

And you now have a Republican Governor who lowered those horrible TOLLS, and got rid of the Rain Tax.

Democrats have called every GOP President racist since I can remember. Isn't it funny that ALL GOPers are racist? They use it because it works. But not anymore. They overplayed their hand. Sad for the situations when REAL racism occurs. When everything is racist, nothing is racist.

The problem is, you can't define the term in a meaningful way. As soon as it gets to a discussion of who's in charge, innovation, and successful societies the conversation gets shut down.

It immediately changes to fairness and the name-calling begins.
