You are absolutely correct. Kids TV today is basically of two stripes - the PC nonsense which you describe and the other which is overly sexualized
teenie bopper stuff that is marketed to 7-14 year olds. Most of it is trash.
I keep an eye on what my kids watch and there is a lot of it I don't let them watch for a variety of reasons. If you can stomach it, take in a bit
of Barney. Barney, who is banned from my house always has the most delightful mix of kids on the show. One black, one asian, one hispanic, one
white and at least one who is massively fat and ugly. Its as if you'd just find this mix of kids on a playground somewhere. Give me a break. I
have no problem with diversity on shows and think its a good thing, but lets water it down a bit.
This not just on TV either. Children's books are also loaded with PC conditioning. I got a kids book as a gift and was checking it out prior to
reading it to my son. Its about a fish that has a load of super colorful scales. None of the other fish have any scales with color. The colorful
fish begins to understand that it is not "fair" for him to have all of the cool scales when the other fish have none, so he gives a red scale to a
fish who is really sad about his lack of color. This makes the colorful fish feel so wonderful that he gives away all of his scales except one, that
way all of the fish have exactly one colorful scale and that makes the sea a wonderful place.
What a bunch of socialist tripe. I got up and put it in the trash.
