    Popular Cartoon ‘VeggieTales’ Declared Racist by ‘Whiteness Forum’

    San Diego State University hosted a “critical look at whiteness” forum last week, where students were presented with poster boards of information on what the organizers considered to be lesser known seeds of racism.

    Among the problematic issues addressed by the Thursday forum were the NFL(because many of the players are black and coaches and owners are white), white women who support President Donald Trump, and the Christian-themed cartoon “VeggieTales,” according to The College Fix.

    The long-running children’s show, which tells Bible stories with vegetables as the characters, was first aired in 1993 and has been beloved by many families for 25 years.

    Don't be fooled. Those two reasons right there are why they call it "racist." Its religion-oriented. They don't want people to call them anti-Christian even though they are, so they use a label that is acceptable even to some people who are religious. The other reason is it's 25 years old, so it's been mostly viewed by white children. Whether it was aimed at them or not is irrelevant.

    However, one student created a poster for the forum that claimed to show “VeggieTales” perpetuates racial stereotypes — because some of the evil characters have accents, while many of the good ones sound white.

    “When kids see the good white character triumph over the bad person of color character, they are taught that white is right and minorities are the source of evil,” the poster stated, according to The College Fix.

    Fox News reported the “VeggieTales” poster was titled “Children in the Church” — and it was aimed straight at religion.

    Like I said above. And I hadn't even seen that part of the story before saying it.

    “When supremacists aim to taint the way children think of people of color, it will work,” the poster stated. “Whiteness in the Bible isn’t just seen as ‘power’ it’s seen as ‘good.’”

    As though they've never heard of "dark forces" or "black arts" or anything of that nature. It's automatically vile if it looks to a weak mind that it paints a non-white in a bad light even if the origin had nothing to do with skin color, race or anything of the sort.

    But there was a major flaw to the poster’s logic about the “good white character” in “VeggieTales,” as Fox News writer Caleb Parke pointed out.

    “Just to be clear, the good guys, Bob and Larry, are red and green respectively, both of which are colors,” Clarke wrote.

    What does that matter? They're both non-white colors. But we know what they REALLY mean, don't we?

    We won't have to worry about a civil war. Idiots are determined to stupid us out of existence!

    Maybe this is why they decided they're racist.

    VeggieTales Writers Confirm Bob, Larry Just Accountability Partners

    GLENDALE, CA—Writers for VeggieTales have confirmed to press that stars Bob and Larry are accountability partners and nothing more. 

    The statement came after progressive outrage over Sesame Street's confirmation that Bert and Ernie are just friends. Liberals quickly began searching for other gay couples for children to look up to in animated kids' shows, and latched onto Bob and Larry's friendly relationship as a possible target.

    "No, Bob and Larry really are just good friends who go out for coffee and talk about their Christian walk," said one representative. "Seriously, don't you people have anything better to do?" The rep pointed out that Bob and Larry regularly study the Bible at coffee shops and discuss their fight against sin, closing with prayer for one another to live as good witnesses for Christ on an increasingly secularized kitchen counter.

    "Besides, guys. They're, like, vegetables."

    At publishing time, VeggieTales producers had also reminded the audience that Jimmy and Jerry Gourd are brothers and nothing more.

    Still, I wouldn't be surprised if you googled "gay children's characters" and it showed Bert and Ernie in some, Bob and Larry in others, and maybe even Spongebob and Patrick in a few. Similar to how you can google "white scientists" and get a majority of pictures of blacks, Muslims, Asians, etc with only a handful of whites showing  anywhere near the top. Because Google isn't biased at all.

    (BTW, this article is a joke - Babylon Bee. But it goes well with the first one that isn't a joke and should be, so I put it here.)
