Cartoon Network encourages kids to view each other by skin color

In the latest concerted effort to brainwash kids on the topics of systemic racism and implicit bias, Cartoon Network launched a confusing and contradictory PSA, urging kids to be “anti-racist” by paying attention to people’s skin color. 

The two-minute-long PSA, from “Steven Universe” creator Rebecca Sugar and Ian Jones-Quartey, was posted to YouTube on Tuesday, the Daily Caller reports. 

“It’s important to SEE people in all their beautiful COLORS. When you see color and the unique experiences that come from it, you can recognize the role racism plays in our culture AND appreciate everyone and their diversity,” the clip’s description read. 

The ad features three characters: one black, one white and one purple alien. 

The three start off by singing, “colorblindness is our game because everyone’s the same. Everybody join our circle, doesn’t matter if you’re white, black or purple.” 

“Hold up a minute here, who wrote this?” the Alien interrupts. “I think it kind of does matter that I’m purple. I mean,, I’m purple because I’m literally an alien.” 

“Well I’m not an alien, but it definitely matters to me that I’m black,” the black character says. 

“Yeah, it makes a difference that I’m white,” the white character replies. “I know the two of us get treated very differently.” 

“My experience with anti-black racism is really specific. Other people of color experience other forms of racism too. But you won’t see any of that if you don’t see color,” the black character says. 

“So this entire public service announcement could be a ploy to avoid talking about racism altogether,” the alien says. “Hey, could we get a rewrite where we appreciate each other without erasing what makes each of us different?” 

A graphic then appears to conclude the PSA: “See color. Be anti-racist.” 

This is the third of a four-part series from the network designed to “provide kids and families with productive ways to disrupt common narratives about racism, per the Daily Caller

While this advertisement was meant to teach kids how to be anti-racist, it completely dropped the ball. Telling kids to see color ultimately promotes a divide, while enabling inequality and radical racial identity politics.

    It’s not our color. It’s the content of our character.

    Par of the rules for communists & Alinsky’s manual for radicals. Control the children’s minds at an early age.

    Just one thing to say. Every Race experiences Racism it doesn’t matter whether you are Black, White, Brown or Red you experience it. When I was younger Black kids used to call me Honkey, Whitebread and Doughboy because of my skin color. When I was younger the kids over the A street bridge in the Barrios of Oxnard used to hate me because of my skin color, I wasn’t Brown. So you see everyone experiences racism. So you see It’s not just a Black thing, a Brown thing or a Red thing, It’s also a White thing, Yellow thing and so on and so on.

    I have no words…..This is not the messaging I want for my daughter. Whatever happened to the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. about the content of one’s character? Do we no longer celebrate honesty and integrity? Do we no long teach right from wrong, good from evil? Lifting one another up, regardless of race, creed, religion? Leo, when I look at you and listen to you, I hear an intelligent, passionate man with a beautiful smile that lights up a room! Americans are so fortunate that we have your voice speaking for us! BTW. my 15 year old daughter runs into the room whenever she hears you speaking on TV. You have a fan for life! When are you going to run for office?

    I pick my friends by what kind of person they are, not skin color. My Bi-racial grand kids are my grand kids, not black/white! Morgan Freeman has it right, we are Americans, stop with everything being about color!

‘Tis the Season For Social Justice Messages on NFL Helmets, End Zones and Hats

Football season is upon us, despite liberal leadership’s cancel culture in full force

NFL Social Justice

Football season is upon us, despite liberal leadership’s cancel culture in full force. Stenciled in the helmets this year, players can choose from six phrases: “End Racism,” “Stop Hate,” “It Takes All of Us,” “Black Lives Matter,” “Inspire Change” and “Say their Stories.”

The end zones will read, for the second straight year, “It Takes All of Us” and “End Racism.” The league is also bringing back the “Say Their Stories” initiative and begin a new one where each team will “highlight its social justice work during a regular-season home game in Weeks 17 and 18.”

“We are committed to Inspire Change and the social justice work that inspires change for the long term,” said Anna Isaacson, NFL’s senior vice president of social responsibility. All of the initiatives “will provide a unified time frame for us to further amplify all of the work that our clubs are doing and that will lead into the playoffs where Inspire Change will continue to take center stage” added Isaacson. “The key message for us as the season is starting, we are ramping up again in a big way with our social justice work.”

End zone stencils will remain in place for all home games except when another specific cause is to be recognized, such as the Salute to Service game. “Salute To Service” will replace “End Racism” in one end zone and “It Takes All of Us” will still remain in the opposite end zone,

Another addition will be a knit hat that can be worn on the sidelines of Weeks 17 and 18 by players, coaches, and other personnel “to add visibility to the cause.” The hat will also be sold at retail, and “100% of the league’s proceeds will be donated to Inspire Change grant recipients.”

Racist Rock: Boulder Removed from UW-Madison ‘Painful History of Discrimination’

Published

Rock

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is spending somewhere between $30,000 and $75,000 for good use; to move a rock. But not just any rock, no, this is a racist rock. “Chamberlin Rock, located on top of Observatory Hill, is named in honor of Thomas Crowder Chamberlin, a geologist and former university president” reports the Wisconsin State Journal.

However, “for some students of color on campus, the rock represents a painful history of discrimination” the article explains. The 70-ton boulder was removed from the “heart of campus” at 6:30 am Friday morning following demands from students over the past year.

The boulder will be moved to university-owned land southeast of Madison near Lake Kegonsa. In its place, the university plans to place a plaque to honor the former university president. Wisconsin State Journal reports:

The boulder was referred to as a “n——-head” — a commonly used expression in the 1920s to describe any large dark rock — at least once in a 1925 Wisconsin State Journal story. University historians have not found any other time that the term was used but said the Ku Klux Klan was active on campus at that time.

UW-Madison Chancellor Rebecca Blank approved the removal of Chamberlin Rock in January but the Wisconsin Historical Society needed to sign off on the rock’s removal because it was located within 15 feet of a Native American burial site…

… The Black Student Union led the call to remove the rock last summer. Nalah McWhorter, the group’s president and a UW-Madison senior, said in an interview this summer that the demands to remove the boulder had been around even before she arrived on campus three years ago.

“I’m grateful that we have had the opportunity to do this and that the rock will be removed,” she said. “It was our demand, and it was something that we put all the work in for.”

The Black Student Union worked with Wunk Sheek, an Indigenous student organization on campus, to lobby for the rock’s removal.

“We did all these presentations,” McWhorter said. “We went through all of these meetings during an academic year with a lot of other stuff going on, so the work really relied on us, as students, and as Black students.”
