‘A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving’ Is Now Racist


The ABC’s annual “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” special was slammed as racist by some people on social media, with some viewers objecting to the dinner-table seating of its only black character.

Why is this the first year we’ve heard about this issue? This is much ado about nothing. It’s just a ploy to complain about nothing. People are always looking to find something they deem objectionable.

Daily Wire:

Another holiday classic has been slapped with the label “racist” by SJWs for supposedly marginalizing the token black character: “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.”

People on social media have expressed outrage over the fact that the lone black character Franklin in “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” appears seated differently juxtaposed to the white characters during the famous dinner scene where Charlie Brown serves popcorn and toast to his hungry guests instead of turkey and stuffing. From The Hill:

The scene in question has four characters from Charles M. Schulz’s iconic ‘Peanuts’ cartoon — Sally, Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty and dog Snoopy — sitting on one side of a makeshift outdoor table for Thanksgiving dinner, with Marcie at one end of the table and Linus at the head.

The cartoon’s lone black character, Franklin, is on his own side of the table seated on a lawn chair.

Comicbook.com was the first to flag the reactions to the scene on social media. More

Charles Schultz was as progressive as they come in terms of race, especially at that time. The fact that Franklin exists was his decision.

He took some serious heat about it from syndicators. His response was that Franklin stays and if they don’t like it, they can drop the Peanuts strip. The syndicators caved.

But that fact escapes these Twitter users:
