It just keeps worse and worse by the day.
Donald Trump took The Presidential oath in January and already his administration has been embroiled in more scandals then the media every thought possible. Of course a lot of that has to do with the way that the left creates a spectacle out every little thing, but sometimes there is legitimate cause for concern.
Unfortunately for everyone else, those writing the headlines don’t seem to know the difference and now claim that First Lady, Melania Trump, was turned away from a donating books to an elementary after the librarian determined that the books were someone racist.
What was the offending material you may b e asking? While most people probably think it was something along the lines of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Fahrenheit 51, or Brave new world, it was actually a rhyming book that has been very popular for the kiddos for years.
That’s right! The offending material was The Cat in The Hat and The First Lady of The United States was turned away after the school claimed that the books were racist and encouraged racial stereotypes. At least that’s what the librarian wrote in a letter to The Trump administration.
According to the letter,”people are unaware of is that Dr. Seuss’s illustrations are steeped in racist propaganda, caricatures, and harmful stereotypes. Open one of his books (If I Ran a Zoo or And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, for example), and you’ll see the racist mockery in his art.”
The librarian, Liz Phillips Soeiro, also stated that the books should be given to schools that are less fortunate to help encourage them towards higher learning. While that in itself is a little divisive to include in such a letter, its also shows a flaw in the system that should be corrected.
In the end, the divisiveness and claims of racism are hard to ignore in order to come away with message that the less fortunate schools should be receiving more attention and help their A school counterparts, and that’s why this looks more like a public stunt then anything else.
