DecemberNitro: FFS nobody knows what "canceled" means anymore.

They got rid of it (good) because it's a racist old stereotype.


But how will children learn history?

Literally the only way to preserve history is statues.

stereotypes exist for reason. be enlightened and above it as much as you want, people of one feather find other feathers to hate. it is universal. the 'murican experiment of a melting pot is living proof of a large nation filled with hate, racism, bigotry, you name it. go to Japan, it's almost all Japanese. and they like it that way.

Does it make you sad to think that they may have hypothetically canceled your jerkoff material?

NikolaiFarkoff: Just to make it even more fun, the wolf also sang about pigs in Pidgin German, clearly to play on our national hatred for Germany and to establish the wolf as the villain (in case we weren't sure).

So basically the wolf was a Nazi dressed as a Jew here, which is a hilariously bad idea.


Little pig, little pig don't you kvetch
Not by the obvious stereotype, wretch!

And the article brings up Jar Jar Binks. What farking idiot came up with the idea that he was a stereotype of blacks?  Find even one example including old movies, cartoons, or even comic strips where a black person talks like that. Whoever thinks he is a black stereotype is seriously racist to be able to see a resemblance.

Not that the character isn't offensive. He is. But it's not because he's racist.

Three Little Cute Anthropomorphic Common Farm Animals and the Adventure of the Inoffensive Middling Comedy Routine?

Dipshiat, this happened in the 1940s. If you're going to cry about made-up bullshiat at least make sure it didn't happen literally a lifetime ago


That was a general statement on the idea of PC and cancel culture dumbing expression down. But...you do you.

Might want to work on civility, granted.

Look I can't defend the depiction or racial stereotypes or indeed do I have a problem with society evolving so that these things are no longer acceptable.

But if I were a big bad wolf and had to convince pigs that I had no interest in eating them....
