Publisher discontinues printing of 6 books for racially insensitive themes. Dr Seuss to be rebranded as "woke".

This is the lamest attempt at emotional manipulation that I have seen from conservatives. How can you cancel yourself? They want to stop publishing six books because of old racial stereotypes in the pictures like Chinese people with pigtails and Africans with exaggerated features. BFD.

And for the record, I hate Dr. Seuss books. Every time I read them to my kids, because you have to as a parent in US, I died a little inside. He was a pusher who got kids hooked on mindless alliteration. I mean, nupboards in the cupboards? Really?
