'VeggieTales' is 'racist' and 'dangerous' for children, California students claim

A group of students at a California college’s “Annual Whiteness Forum” labeled the Christian children’s cartoon “VeggieTales” as “dangerous” and promoting racial stereotypes for making the villains colored.

The forum at Cal State San Marcos is a project from Professor Dreama Moon’s class titled “The Communication of Whiteness.” Students called various things racist, including the NFL, women who support President Trump, and the popular animated cartoon that started in 1993 and always ended with Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber’s tagline, “Remember kids, God made you special and he loves you very much,” the College Fix reported.

A female student made the claim that by humanizing vegetables, the creators of VeggieTales were using the children’s programming to promote racial stereotypes by making the villains racial minorities.

Back in the 60's Hippie nut jobs bitched and complained that GI Joe toys were "Glorifying War" and should be banned.

What I'm pointing out is our country has had nut jobs around forever, but now they have the internet to reach millions.

What needs to be done is to use are majority and beat them down and shut them up. Majority Rules!
