The special, which debuted Nov. 20, 1973, aired again on Wednesday — prompting social media outrage over the gang’s highly unwoke picnic table arrangement.

www.foxnews.com...

Charlie Brown, which was a leader in fighting racism adding a black character when few were doing it, is now racist.

This is the crap that is destroying this country. The non stop jumping to racism and playing the race card over every little thing.

Someone truly woke would say wow, Charlie Brown was a trailblazer, that's awesome.

A lot of cartoons that I watched years ago would be considered racist now.
Example:Tom and Jerry cartoons from the 1940's,they had a black housekeeper.

These are the people who are winning. Not because they are the majority, but because to question them makes you racist in the culture the progressives have created.

It is odd that the black character is in a crappy chair sitting on their own on the opposite side of the table though, I noticed it immediately. I'm not saying racist, but clearly odd that it was drawn that way.

Must be a slow news day if fox has to whine about some nonsense on twitter.




You are to emotional over something so trivial.

Same with American classic novels.

Charlie Brown is an instance of actually trying to combat racism. People tried to get rid of the black character and the creator demanded he stay.

There are British comedy's from the 1970's which no broadcaster would dare show these days. White actors in make-up playing the parts of black or asian people.

At first I was just sad when I noticed Franklin sitting alone at that Thanksgiving dinner. I am 52 years old and remember the world without all of this BULLcaca racist crap.....and I grew up in the bayous of East Texas...(yes, there are bayous there.......) I am sure there was racism going on there....there are racists EVERYWHERE.....but not where I saw it.....
that being stated.....I started to think about that cartoon I loved....and talking about it with my Cajun cousin.....and he stated to me and I agree.....that it is a form of BRAINWASHING that is going on right now....to MAKE US think that ALL OF THIS BLATANT racism is going on right now........

DON"T FALL FOR IT........

The maker of Peanuts was NOT A RACIST and this cartoon is NOT RACIST!!!!

I tell you, somebody or some group has set out to destroy society.......and it is working.

I see 3 characters sitting by themselves and the rest all on one side. You could argue [if you have a healthy mind] that it was easier to draw, or the three [two of which are white/ginger] have the best seats with the most space, whilst the others are cramped together.
Maybe the three are the most important ones and the others are literally the non important ones.

I am getting so fed up about this now. It's only people of low IQ, who can't see logic when it punches them straight in their face that come up with such crap. Maybe they are also brain washed. Sad thing is that they are the most racist of all by constantly being obsessed about colour and trying to give black people special treatment, when [in my opinion] they should not need it. After all apparently we are all the same, that includes being the butt of a joke or being disliked too.

Anything else is patronising and a sign that they think blacks can't cope by themselves and need a white person protecting them, or that they are so stupid they need positive action in order to manage anything.

The moaners are the racists.

Garnering false outrage.

Just how many people were REALLY upset about this?

Oh and the guy who Fox News quoted saying “They give our friend the busted chair and won’t even sit on the same side of the table, more proof that Charlie Brown and his cohorts are RACIST,” has said it was a joke.

mobile.twitter.com...

Nice try though.

It's only trivial if you lack the capacity to see how this relates to everything else.

Somehow you are stuck on this is about a cartoon. Hint. It's not.

How many does it usually take? You tell me how many were outraged. It's enough that this story is on lots of outlets including the NY post.

Being historically correct is racist.

Slow news day. Opinion piece .

Just something for the sheep to get upset about.

It's meaningless. Obviously meant to divide.

Her preferred weapon was a sweeping brush/broom if I recall correctly.
I didn't grow up thinking black housekeepers were animal abusers though.

So you agree the people thinking this should be fought?

It should divide us. Into the group pushing this and the group standing up against it.
