I spoke to a primary school teacher.
Back in the 1990s they had to burn any books
with Golliwogs in them.

Well... Barry Humphries, in the 70's, tried to break the foreign stereotype of Australians as being pissed and racist white trash.

He invented Sir Les Patterson and Bazza McKenzie as an attempt to shock Australians into realising what trash they were perceived as overseas (particularly in Britain).

Unfortunately, as Humphries bemoans, it had the opposite effect in the Australia of the 70's and 80's.

Given human nature has an instinctive and profound predilection towards quick cultural stereotypes, negative cultural stereotypes become 'the ugly truth' to foreigners about all members of the targeted culture or group.

It's not cancel culture, it's not book burning and the books aren't even banned.

The company themselves have made a decision based on their consultation with school, teachers and parents.

Free Market bitches.

Also, have a read of this,

The Cat is Out of the Bag: Orientalism, AntiBlackness, and White Supremacy in Dr. Seuss's Children's Books

Also, this all started to gain major traction under Trump in 2019, although a lot of people had concerns much earlier, so if you think this private company's decision based on community consultation is the President's fault, at least blame the right one.

Really? No one could take it seriously?

Of course it was obvious it was a comedy send-up, anyone could get that...

But a send up of what? Australian culture. And foreigners latched onto it... Every foreign sketch in that era where Australians were depicted (including Monty Python), they were half-witted, pissed and usually racist... Add in the dangling corks and the safari suit and you had yourself a 'mainstream Australian'.

Dear Mr Sad,
don't get sucked in -
it's the new political correctness gone mad.
It's what Biden voters wanted.

The books are indeed racist. We dont live in 1950 anymore.
