    VeggieTales villains are "Vegetables of color"

    Source: https://www.thecollegefix.com/university-hosts-critical-look-at-whiteness-forum/



    Another project suggested that the children’s Christian television show, “VeggieTales,” perpetuates racial stereotypes. A female student who worked on the project said in an interview that the accents of the evil characters tend to sound ethnic, such as Latino, while the good characters 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 project stated

    "The Christian cartoon 'VeggieTales' is racist because the villains are vegetables of color," The College Fix reports the forum as saying.

    The "good and white sounding characters", like a tomato and a cucumber?

    Who are regularly portrayed as being "not too bright"?

    So according to liberals, these are white guys:

    Also, isn't it a bit racist to attempt to determine someone's ethnicity by how they sound?

    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    A key point. Bob and Larry. Find two bigger idiots on the show. I'll wait.

    I'm mostly disturbed by their unrealistic, problematic body image expectations. How am I supposed to look like this?
