Christian children’s cartoon VeggieTales is now considered “racist” and “dangerous” for children, according to group of students at a California college’s “Annual Whiteness Forum.”
As reported by The College Fix:
The forum at Cal State San Marcos is a project from Professor Dreama Moon’s class titled “The Communication of Whiteness.” Students called various things racist, including the NFL, women who support President Trump, and the popular animated cartoon that started in 1993 and always ended with Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber’s tagline, “Remember kids, God made you special and he loves you very much.
The assertion made by a student was that by humanizing vegetables, the creators of VeggieTales were promoting racial stereotypes by making the villains racial minorities.
“When supremacists aim to taint the way children think of people of color, it will work,” the poster read, which was titled, “Children in the Church.”

“Whiteness in the Bible isn’t just seen as ‘power’ it’s seen as ‘good,’” the poster continues. “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.”
According to Fox News, the female student who headed up the project reportedly said the evil characters sound ethnic or Latino, while the good characters sound white.
It is important to note that Bob and Larry (the Good Characters,) are red and green respectively, both of which are colors.
Former “VeggieTales” writer and narrator Eric Metaxas, provided his feedback on the forums take.
“All vegetables are part of one race, even though they are of many colors. They are all descended from the same parents — the Adam and Eve of vegetables, who foolishly ate a forbidden fruit (irony?) and screwed everything up for all vegetables descended from them,” Metaxas told PJ Media. “At least I’m pretty sure that’s the story.”
Isa from the Political Cowboy had this to say:
Some days…I just can’t.
This has to be a big joke. I know most conspiracy theories suggest nefarious cabals controlling global currency and plotting false flag school shootings or whatever, but has anyone explored the idea that maybe the global elite is just screwing with us?
Like, seeing how far they can take political correctness and then just cracking up in a dark, smoky room somewhere as we tear our hair out over how stupid it really is?
