And this is why you need to buy hardcover books. Preferably in leather.
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.”
The lesson, as always, is this: sink the damn ships!
