    Good grief.

    Apparently people think that Charlie Brown is racist because the only character of color was sitting on one side of the table by himself.

    I tried discussing this with a Leftists but all they said was, "Wa, wa: wa, wa:, wa wa:, and wa; wa"

    I get more out of NPC memes.

    An imaginary cartoon character hand drawn for publication in a newspaper is a racist?? I thought one had to be a human to be a racist.

    Here is another story explaining how the Franklin character got started. It was the late sixties. It was time to add a black kid to the group.

    https://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-surprising-story-behind-franklin-the-first-black-peanuts-character/

    Also, the word around the internet campfire seems to be that Franklin is on the other side of the table by himself because he is a guest of honor. If you notice he also has the most comfortable chair. All the other chairs (which are all straight-backed hard chairs) are different as well. You know how it is for Thanksgiving, more people, more chairs, and some might end up sitting on an ice chest. I was at a friend's house (big family) for Thanksgiving one year and my seat was a milk crate. You didn't hear me complain because I was glad to be invited. Others thought enough of me to want me to share the occasion with them.

    This hoo-hah over this seems to be what some white people get up to when they try too hard to convince people that they're not racist.

    Charlie Brown dwells in a very whitewashed world that was far from representative of
    the USA as a whole even in the late 1960s. But it was representative of many parts of the USA.
    All white neighborhoods (or schools) were common then and far from extinct now.
    Charles Schulz was not obliged to make a demographically accurate picture of diversity in his cartoon.

    The sitcom 'Friends' was very popular with white Americans and much less so with black Americans.
    At one time, the network reportedly considered adding a token black Friend to the six white ones.
    Michael Moore has said that adding such such a token minority would have made
    the show much more phony and contrived. He said that, in real life, Friends like
    Rachel, Ross, etc. move--and enjoy moving--in about an exclusively white world.
    Oh, there might be a momentary nod to 'diversity' where Ross, for instance, goes
    out with a woman of East Asian heritage and wants to sleep with her, but it's obvious
    that would only a diversionary fling (his perk of being a white man), and she could
    never fit in with the core of white Friends.

    I believe that it's usually condescending (at best) to add a token minority to a story where
    that character has no real function except to deflect charges of racism against the writer.
