If you've read this far than it's safe to say I don't have to explain in great detail the concept of cancel culture. It's nothing new, people of opinion have led boycotts of sponsors/advertisers with the sole purpose of forcing those advertisers to back away from a person or program so you hit your enemy where it hurts- in the pocketbook!  (again, always follow the money)

The latest target up for cancellation?  None other than Dr. Seuss!  Six of his books will no longer be published due to racially insensitive images shown inside the books.  Read the AP story here.  These six books are far from his classics like Green Eggs and Ham, but I was still a fan of the Mulberry Street book. But sometimes ya gotta call a spade a spade.  Hey, don't try and cancel me...that's just an ancient Greek saying.  Yeesh.

So with the Washington Redskins, the Fighting Sioux, Aunt Jemima, Uncle Ben all being sent out to the politically incorrect pasture, I got to thinking whatever happened to the Little Peoples organization that had a beef with the Dickinson Midgets?  Well looks like the topic was in full swing in December of 2019, but then the pandemic came along and who really cared?

Cancel culture cares and they could be coming for our school mascots! DUCK MIDGETS!!
