Dr. Seuss Museum forced to remove Mural due to racist claims

 

The Dr. Seuss Museum in Springfield, Massachusetts is now in the middle of controversy.This all started over a mural created by Dr. Seuss, which some are claiming to be a “jarring sterotype” of a Chinese man.

The Dr. Seuss Museum has agreed to take down and remove the mural from their exhibit. The image that has generated this attention was from Dr. Seuss’s first book “And to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street”, which was released in 1937.Here is a picture of the famous imagine which has since been removed from the museum.

What do you think? Is it racist? or are people just overreacting?

  1. Overreacting again and as usual it seems. That was part of our history and when we cover up these images we cover up who we were. Chinamen do eat with sticks. What is wrong with that?

  2. I am so sick and tired of this happening to books, statues and art….we have better things to try to solve besides someone being upset over this …seriously shame on the museum for not standing up for themselves
    and for the creator!
