      1. Exactly! It’s a slippery slope. That’s why this is absolutely insane and very alarming! First let’s ban books like Dr. Seuss, next?! ….One can only speculate

      2. You’re 100% correct!

        “Also among those works burned were the writings of beloved nineteenth-century German Jewish poet Heinrich Heine, who wrote in his 1820–1821 play Almansor the famous admonition, “Dort, wo man Bücher verbrennt, verbrennt man am Ende auch Menschen”: “Where they burn books, they will also ultimately burn people.”

  1. I think Seuss will be remembered as a genius not a racist once the PC idiocy ends. I’m Asian-American and very acutely aware of racist undertones but Seuss doesn’t offend me. I think his now infamous drawing of a yellow-faced “Chinaman” and African blackface tribesman are both outdated, cringeworthy, stereotyped depictions, (which should be discussed and critiqued but within a historical context). But I don’t think his entire body of work should be banned. “Oh the Places you’ll Go” and “the Lorax” are two of my favorites.
