Dr. Seuss is the latest person to be mixed in with "cancel culture." Theodor "Seuss" Geisel, who wrote over 60 books,. including "Cat In The Hat, How The Grinch Stole Christmas, and Oh, The Places You'll Go" is being taken out of a school district in Virginia. Loudoun County Public Schools, one of Virginia's biggest school districts, reportedly nixed Dr. Seuss from the school's "Read Across America Day" celebration, citing alleged racial "undertones" in his children's books.
"Read Across America" started as a celebration of Dr. Seuss' life. Dr. Seuss was born in Massachusetts on March 2nd, the day of "Read Across America," but died in 1991. While the Biden administration hasn't commented, the President historically reads one of Dr. Seuss' books in a school. It appears this year that President Biden will not be reading a Seuss classic. Former Presidents, Barack Obama and Donald Trump both highlighted Dr. Seuss' contributions in their annual proclamations. President Biden did not.
