No one is cancelling Dr. Seuss.
There are 6 books that his own estate, are ceasing to publish because of overtly racist content.
They are using them as a way to say “this is the heritage that we came from, and we have learned and are doing better now.” Six books out of hundreds [technically the list is 45] isn’t cancelling, it’s learning. It’s like when you rocked whatever horrible fashion was trendy when you were 13, and at 30 you’re like “phew, glad I got over that tragic look!”
Dr. Seuss, and most of his work, is alive and well. NOT cancelled. Six books are no longer being published.
It’s the right thing to do.
