Yet ANOTHER Children’s Book PULLED For Being “Racist”…

Uncategorized

The sale and distribution of a book have stopped immediately after its publisher said it “perpetuates passive racism.”

A children’s graphic novel from the immensely popular “Captain Underpants” announced that series is no longer available in library and immediately stopped the sale and distribution of a book over allegations of “perpetuates passive racism.”

The book in question is 2010’s “The Adventures of Ook and Gluk”. This book was written by Dav Pilkey, who is known for writing “Captain Underpants” and “Dog Man,” two wildly successful children’s book series that have sold more than 100 million copies. Pilkey has apologized for the work saying it “contains harmful racial stereotypes” and is “wrong and harmful to my Asian readers.”

“‘The Adventures of Ook and Gluk: Kung-Fu Cavemen from the Future’ was intended to showcase diversity, equality, and non-violent conflict resolution,” he explained. “But this week it was brought to my attention that this book also contains harmful racial stereotypes and passively racist imagery. I wanted to take this opportunity to publicly apologize for this.”

  1. I suggest any morally honest person with critical thinking abilities possessing the IQ higher than a cabbage surly must realize by now all these supposedly high-minded critics screeching “racism” really ARE the actual racists.

  3. How could children survive for decades reading these fun books.I wonder what “color” all these book hating “kids” are?Or is it “Grown up” Democrats that have nothing to do and are filled with HATE?
