In terms of watching cartoons as a child, the VeggieTales were admittedly a little bit before my time.
However, from babysitting for several nieces and nephews over the years I have probably watched the show as much as a whole army of small children.
It’s a show that is absolutely perfect for the audience they are trying to reach and the things that they are trying to get across to them.
There are several life lessons that kids need to progressively learn as they grow up and sometimes sitting them down and reading off a list of things they should and shouldn’t do just will not work.
Sometimes, you need to hire a talking tomato to do the job. Also, in the terms of stories from The Bible the cartoon is a perfect teaching tool as well because at times the lessons contained in the Good Book can be a little hard for kids to digest so it makes perfect sense that you get a talking tomato to tell them about Jesus.
That being said, liberals are somehow trying to trash the talking tomato by using their favorite word…racist. You might be asking yourselves how in the heck can a talking tomato that tells kids Bible stories be racist?
Well, leave it up to a liberal.
From Western Journal:
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.
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.
