RACIST IMAGERY?: These 6 Dr. Suess books are Cancel Culture’s latest VICTIM…

by Graham Allen Team

Just last week, cancel-culture dipped into an environment that, for the most part, it really hasn’t gone into yet.

Children.

Canceling started by blacklisting folks who sexually assaulted others, those who were racist or even people that Twitter or Tik Tok chose not to agree with.

For the most part, the cancel culture has targeted people like Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby or Kevin Spacey, all people whose actions justified being canceled.

But lately, the movement has taken a turn for the worst, attacking things a turn for the absolute worst.

After Hasbro changed Mr. Potato Head from male to a “non-gender,” it was only a matter of time before the left’s tantrum entered into the world of children.

Their latest victim: Dr. Suess.



Six books of the renowned children’s author will no longer be for sale.

Dr. Suess Enterprises told the public that the books contained “racist and insensitive imagery.”

“These books portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong,”¬†Dr. Seuss Enterprises¬†said to The Associated Press.

“Ceasing sales of these books is only part of our commitment and our broader plan to ensure Dr. Seuss Enterprises’ catalog represents and supports all communities and families,” the company released in a statement.

The six books that will no longer be sold include:

And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street

If I Ran The Zoo

McElligot’s Pool

On Beyond Zebra!

Scrambled Eggs Super!

The Cat’s Quizzer

The company told The Associated Press that after months of discussion last year, they concluded to cancel the books.

“Dr. Seuss Enterprises listened and took feedback from our audiences including teachers, academics and specialists in the field as part of our review process. We then worked with a panel of experts, including educators, to review our catalog of titles,” Dr. Suess Enterprises said.

Recently schools have taken it upon themselves to cancel Dr. Suess inside the classroom.

According to Fox News, a Virginia school decided to “discourage” young readers away from the author.

Despite the move to cancel Dr. Suess, his popularity is still on the rise.

In 2020, Forbes listed Suess as the second-highest-paid dead celebrity behind the “King of Pop,” Michael Jackson.

Even though Dr. Suess’s life, aside from being an author, included some problematic choices, that does not negate his books and stories’ positive impact upon the lives of many.

Stories like The Cat in The Hat, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, or even Oh the Places You’ll Go have been essential to many people, regardless of race, politics, or religion.
