So why was the black character in a crappy chair sitting on their own on the other side of the table like a board interview for a job?

No one complains when black people are over represented in movies and TV with respect to U.S. census figures. Technically, one black person and 6 white people is pretty accurate relative to the U.S. population.

As far as Franklin being the only one on the left side of the table, they should of had Lucy or Peppermint Pattie next to him, implying a mixed race relationship. That would have made it PC enough, maybe.

Of course if this had truly been racist, then Franklin would have been serving dinner and eating in the kitchen after the white folks were through eating.

Why not? If it was 3 boys on one side and a girl in the other side is it sexist and anti girl?

Are you really saying the intent of adding the character in the 60s was to be racist?

The problem is these morons who are a vocal minority win all the time and if you question them you too get labelled racist by the progressive movement.

I've already said I don't think it's racist so quit that, I just question the scene and the oddness of it.
Now, do you not think the seating arrangements are odd? Do you have any guests at your home and have them sitting in the crap chair on their own? I don't, hence I thought immediately it looked odd.

Because he's the last one who showed up so got the last chair. For the time this was made this is highly progressive and was an attempt to combat racism.

Considering the trailblazing he did by adding and refusing to get rid of the character the seating was probably purposeful to cause that kind of questioning to help shed some light onto the racism of the day. So what we have here is people crying about something being racist when it was probably purposely done that way to draw attention to such behavior in the day to help combat and fight racism.

So the idiots are attacking the work of those fighting for the same cause before them.

hahahahahahah


Critics are slamming ABC’s “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” for seating its only black character, Franklin, alone on one side of the holiday table — in a rickety old lawn chair.
Meanwhile, white friends — including Peppermint Patty, Charlie Brown, Sally and even Snoopy — were all seated across from him in real chairs as they feasted,


straight put Lavonte in the old jacked up chair

Yes, straight put the character in despite pressure and demand the character be removed.

Dang I didn't marry a white girl, so am I now going to be put in jail?
True story, I didn't marry a white girl. So I'm a racist?

Why not. I married a non white, non American citizen immigrant and I get told I'm an isolationist and only want white people in America.

I hadn't thought about that, thanks you've made me look at it from a different perspective now.

Franklin is shown to be a skilled dancer. He leads Marcie in a waltz in Race for Your Life, Charlie Brown, performs an elaborate break-dancing routine in It's Flashbeagle, Charlie Brown, and performs another break-dancing number (while also rapping)

he could have blazed a trail and had Franklin shred the piano like Shroeder

and


Franklin's skin color was mentioned in The Charlie Brown Dictionary, a picture dictionary using the Peanuts characters; he was referred to in the definition of "black" in showing a picture of him talking on the telephone, where the color of the telephone is black. The description also says that "black may also refer to Franklin's skin tone, which is also known as a Negro person.
