I grew up on Dr. Seuss. I never knew he was a racist. I guess First Ladies Clinton, Bush and Obama never knew it either because they often read to students from Dr. Suess. Once the current First Lady offered a gift to some schools of Suess books he suddenly has become racist. Go figure.
Suess once commented that fantasy is a necessary part of living. “It is a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope”. If that is the case we have a lot of folks living in a fantasy world. It may be a necessary part of life but once and a while you have to look at reality as well
