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.


It was drawn that way because it was a fight to have that character there at all, let alone show Franklin in a way that most of us with our modern sensibilities would consider normal.

You have to recall the times these strips were produced in and the forces arrayed against Schulz. It was monumental that Franklin is there at all in any capacity.

People are saying it's a racist act


A handful of people are saying it’s racist.

A larger contingent are using those handful of people’s comments as ammo against all of the left.

Morons begets morons.


The problem these days is that it only takes a handful to make this a major issue and get the thing banned.

You're right. Most of us don't care, but those squeaky wheels sure will get the grease. And the left doesn't seem to mind them ... in fact, this is a leftist mindset, and it will spawn more.

They barely let Stan Lee get cold in his grave before another small handful started in on how he was a racist. Their gripe? Stan Lee once said that Peter Parker should always be portrayed as a nerdy white male because that's how he had conceived of the character.

The horror! But apparently, the idea that Peter Parker should always be a white male made Stan Lee "problematic" and they had start in on that as soon as he died.

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.


So did The Jeffersons.

Of course it’s racist.

Christmas is racist. Thanksgiving is racist. Easter too. Oktoberfest is racist. Married with children is racist. Brexit is even somehow racist. The Sentinel islanders are definitely racists.

Tonka trucks are racist. Lego too. He-Man is racist. Fox News is racist. Feminists are racist. Currency is racist. X Box is racist. Gummi Bears is racist (the candy AND the cartoon). Protests are racist. Driving is racist. Not driving is racist.

In fact, if you can find ONE single thing, animal vegetable mineral or idea that some weak gutless libtarded leftist can’t possibly consider ‘racist’ then you’re obviously a racist too.

Peter Parker can be black and I think Martin Luther King should be played by a white person.

Wait only one of those is racist?

I bet Johnny Depp would make a great MLK.
He's a Leftist...so it wouldn't be racist.

Having a housekeeper doesn't mean no family members will clean. It just means no one has to time to clean as much as the house requires. Mom and dad work full-time, so they have a housekeeper who does the chores full- or part-time.

The crazy thing about it is that he didn't say Spider-Man could never be anything other than white, only that Peter Parker should always be a white male.

Actually they said spider Man can be non white, only Peter Parker can't be.

Anything else would make no sense.

They can do it because everyone knows that as good leftists, they have the best intentions always, even if it's something that might otherwise get someone labeled as racist.

*shrug*

It is what it is. I don't let it bother me. If someone would rather pay someone else to do housework, that's their choice. With some chores, I understand that impluse. I'd rather pay someone to do them too, and if there is someone out there who doesn't mind doing those chores enough they'd do them for pay ... I'd be happy to pay them.

Myself? I don't mind doing laundry. I might be willing to take in some neighbor's laundry for some extra money.

If they don't do their own laundry, is that some reflection on them?

People really are that ####ing stupid.

SMH



Pretty soon they'll be burning copies of The Cat in the Hat


She points out that the Cat in the Hat, perhaps Seuss’ most famous character, is based on minstrel stereotypes. “The Cat’s physical appearance, including the Cat’s oversized top hat, floppy bow tie, white gloves, and frequently open mouth, mirrors actual blackface performers; as does the role he plays as ‘entertainer’ to the white family—in whose house he doesn’t belong,” says Ishizuka.

They added a black character. Youre lucky they did that much you special snowflake sissies. I would not bend to your pandering.

Yeah, he shouldn't even be a character. I mean, you have to be a pretty lazy racist to let that slip, huh?
