Thumbs up Richard Scarry-Eurocentric kids books

Any guy who draws a cat wearing Leiderhosen is okay by me!

Quote:
Racial issues began to surface when Random House re-released Busy, Busy World. This picture book had been a pinnacle of achievement for Scarry when he was at Golden Books. It was a labor of love, incorporating his fondness for travel and appreciation for other cultures. But changing times and buckets of hate mail at Random House suggested that characters like Manuel of Mexico (with a pot of refried beans stuck on his head), Ah-Choo the near-sighted panda bear from Hong Kong, and Angus the Scottish bagpiper were no longer acceptable role models for children. Random House quietly subtracted some of Scarry's best stories from future distribution, including the much-loved vignette of Patrick Pig, who shouts "UP THE IRISH" after kissing the Blarney stone. That story can be found in earlier copies of Golden Book's Busy Busy World, in the remainder bin of your local thrift store.

Scarry never received a single award. None of his drawings were ever selected by the New York Times as among the best of the year, and he never won a Caldecott Honor. It was widely considered among awards committees that not only was he too popular, he sold too many books. The millions of dollars he earned were considered his "reward" - his great success disqualifying him from being eligible.

I was 7 years old when my older sister who had just graduated from college gave me a Richard Scary book.

When this book was written around 1970 America around 87.4% White.
10 years later 83.1%, in 1980.
The Reagan/Bush years led us to 75.6% by 1990.
Bill Clinton was on the clock while Whites fell to 69.1% in 2000.

Whites are projected to make up around 63% of the population by the next census.

Richard Scary's America was murdered because our parents were bedazzled by the jewish lie machine, the television.

Same here. I got all of my Scarry books from my cousin, who had gotten them from his older siblings. I had them read to me/read them for years, then passed them down to my kids. At this point, there's too many layers of tape to count holding those books together. 8 different kids learned to love to read because of a single author and the same 2 books passed amongst each other.

Richard Scarry books were pure genius, I remember so fondly reading them with my mother, and learning so much. My mother even made me a lowly the worm stuffed animal. Only worm who wore a german cap.

Great memories.

My daughter's potty seat happens to be a Dora the Explorer model given as a baby shower gift.

I tell her, "Go poop on Dora." or "Go pee on Dora."

The jews aren't the only ones allowed to do subliminal programming.
