    Why wasn't it a problem until now, considering they've been perfectly fine since the 70s? If they were truly problematic, wouldn't they have gotten pulled much earlier? Seems like a complete overreaction to me, especially since Seuss wasn't trying to spread bigotry whatsoever.

    Seuss was known for racial caricature and supported japanese internment. The Mullberry street that got pulled had a pretty racist caricature of a chinese person with the caption "chinaman"

    Then they should pull All the old Great Westerns. as they also said chinaman. But I'm not for it.

    I am Filipino/Irish. thus they categorize me as Asian. Which is fine with me. But when people start offending me for my heritage, I say kcuf them!

    @x65943 And, from what I've read, Seuss did that Japanese-internment-support thing early in his career - which he later grew to hate and regret. Sure, there were some nowadays-questionable images in his books, but that does not, in any way, mean he was trying to push a racist agenda.
