In cases like these I prefer to see the actual offending material before passing judgment.


Agreed.




That’s undeniably pretty bad even for “back then”.

I’m just going to assume it’s legit.
It is. He also did some advertising work that was pretty sketchy.

Many of us have decided not to sanction old presumptions about race. So what if otherism energized mainstream hominid behavior for 100,000+ years?

How do we tell the kids though?

Which children’s book was that in?
the point is that there is nothing regressive about content that polite society would
no longer consider appropriate falling by the wayside...

this is just more of the bullshit wound-collecting from the free-bleeding rightwads

If you're this triggered by racist kid's books being pulled from distribution you must have been apologetic after the Sandy Hook massacre.

I like how Charilie used the girls to lure dudes in.

I totally would have fallen for that.

At some point, I would have gotten up and said, I'll be right back and took off running into the hills.

I used to be good at running and climbing to get away back in the day.
