Seriously? Christian Cartoon ‘VeggieTales’ Deemed Racist, ‘Dangerous’ for Kids


Everything is racist.

The latest target of social justice warriors and “white guilt” sufferers is the popular Christian children’s cartoon “VeggieTales.” The show of dancing and singing vegetables and fruits has been deemed racist and “dangerous” by a “whiteness forum” in Southern California because the colors and voices assigned to characters apparently suggest racial stereotypes and perpetuate white supremacy.

A student project examining "whiteness" titled “Children in the Church” featured at the forum at Cal State San Marcos last week argues that “VeggieTales” is racist because racial minorities are “usually depicted as villains” and “irredeemable characters,” “which is ironic because a major theme in the Bible is Jesus’s power of the redemption of God’s children,” the description states.

It goes a step further to say that the show is teaching children that “minorities are the source of evil” and that white supremacists are using the show to “taint the way children think of people of color”:

Whiteness in the Bible isn’t just seen as ‘power’ it’s seen as ‘good.’ 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.”

A child’s mind is just developing, and they will absorb what is taught to them. When white supremacists aim to taint the way children think of people of color, it will work. ‘Veggie Tales’ and other like-minded works have made the good messages in the Bible dangerous.

The forum, first reported by The College Fix, was held by the Department of Communication at Cal State San Marcos on Thursday and featured several projects by students enrolled in the communications class titled “The Communication of Whiteness.”

Other things deemed racist by the forum included the NFL for having mostly white coaches and black players, white women for voting for President Trump, and white people for avoiding confronting their “privilege.”  

Fox News reported that Eric Metaxas, a former “VeggieTales” writer and narrator, responded to the forum by saying that “all vegetables are part of one race, even though they are many colors” and that “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.”

“At least, I’m pretty sure that’s the story,” he said.

Students in other classes at the public college were reportedly offered extra credit to attend the forum. One such student told The Fix that he believes the forum did the opposite of promoting equality by making “people feel guilty for being white.”
