Video: Jud Burgess of Brave Books deep dives into Dr. Seuss children’s book controversy

Is Dr. Seuss a racist? You decide. Jud Burgess discusses the fallout of the recent decision to discontinue six of Dr. Seuss’s beloved children’s books.

Six of Dr. Seuss’ older children’s books were just discontinued because of perceived racism/ignorance/insensitivity to various cultures.
“This I believe is a discussion that needs to be had amongst ourselves in light of the times,” Burgess shares.

Burgess reviews four of the books and displays the images which are likely at the core of the recent decision of the Dr. Seuss Foundation to stop the presses on these particular books because of insensitive and potentially hurtful imagery to various ethnicities.

This is a discussion that needs to be had. What do you think?
