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.

    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!

Psaki Responds To Biden Calling Reporter A ‘Stupid Son Of A B****’

Published

Jen Psaki

On Tuesday, White House Press Secretary responded to Democrat President Joe Biden calling Fox News reporter Peter Doocy a “stupid son of a b****” for asking about the inflation crisis.

“The President, the President called Peter, and [Peter Doocy] confirmed this, so this is only why I’m speaking to this, and if you have private conversations with the president, I will assure you I’m not going to convey that on your behalf,” Psaki said. “But Peter spoke to this, the President called him, he conveyed to him that it was nothing personal man and also acknowledged that all of you are going to ask him a range of questions. So I think that speaks for itself.”

Biden called Doocy a “stupid son of a b****” after Doocy asked if the inflation crisis would hurt the Democrats in the upcoming midterm elections.

“Do you think inflation is a political liability for midterms?” Doocy asked.

“It’s a great asset, more inflation,” Biden responded. “What a stupid son of a b****.”

Doocy reacted to the incident in multiple interviews, revealing that Biden called him afterward and told him “it’s nothing personal, pal,” but Biden notably never apologized.

“When the president calls from the Oval Office and he says ‘it’s nothing personal, pal.’ And you know, I wasn’t particularly upset about what had happened anyway,” Doocy said on the Guy Benson Show. “I think that that’s enough just to kind of put it behind us. And I know now how much attention people pay to off-color comments like that from the president. But I think that he wanted to just clear the air and he wanted to address it, and he wanted to make sure that he didn’t that I didn’t think he was talking to me in a malicious way. And so it was a nice call. We talked for a couple of minutes right after I did Brett Baer show last night.”

“So the word ‘sorry’ was not expressed,” Guy said.

“It was not. But that’s OK,” Doocy replied.

Biden’s Energy Secretary Violated Stock Disclosure Laws 9 Times Last Year

A spokeswoman for Granholm said that the late disclosures were the fault of a “clerical error”

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm sold shares of stock 9 times last year between April to October, but did not disclose the sales “within the legally required 45-day window, according to federal disclosure documents”, reports CNBC.

The shares of stock were worth up to $240,000. A spokeswoman for Granholm blamed a “clerical error” saying the secretary paid a late filing fee. Granholm did not file any of the 9 disclosures until December after legal deadlines for all had passed.

The STOCK Act has been in place since 2012, which “expanded the accountability and reporting requirements for financial holdings, both for members of Congress and high-level employees of the Executive Branch like Granholm” reports CNBC.

“The news of Granholm’s apparent violations comes at a time when stock sales by public officials and members of Congress are getting a fresh look” reports CNBC. “During the past week, several members of Congress, both Democrats and Republicans, have introduced or reintroduced legislation that would effectively ban lawmakers and their immediate family members from actively trading stocks while the member is in office.”

According to an analysis by Business Insider’s Dave Levinthal published earlier this month, a total of 54 members of Congress violated the STOCK Act rules just last year alone.

CNBC reports on the suspicious behavior of Granholm:

When President Joe Biden nominated her to be his energy secretary, Granholm signed a detailed Ethics Agreement in which she agreed to give up part-time jobs at the University of California and at CNN, step down from several boards, and sell millions of dollars worth of stock.

On March 22, she reported 23 stock sales, many of them blue-chip companies she had more than $10,000 of shares in.

A few months later in May, Granholm filed more transaction reports detailing how she had exercised stock options in the electric bus and battery company Proterra and then sold all her shares, worth between $1 million and $5 million, on May 24.

But in between the March blue chip sales and the May Proterra sale, Granholm made 6 of the 9 stock sales that didn’t get disclosed until December.
