MIDLAND, Texas – Cancel culture has added Dr. Seuss to the chopping block.
Because his character depictions were deemed racist and insensitive to gender differences causing six of his books to be pulled and will no longer be sold or published.
According to AP “And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street” and “If I Ran the Zoo” are on the list.
However, that is not stopping Midland Centennial Library from celebrating his other iconic books.
“We support your right to read anything you want to read obviously Dr. Seuss books were written in a different time and illustrated in a different time and we can’t forget that but he still created some very iconic works that have been very meaningful to children throughout generations,” says Megan Buck, Assistant Director Social Impact and Community Outreach Unit.
The Dr. Seuss birthday party will start at 10 a.m. with Dr. Seuss themed story time, activities and prizes to win.
