CA College Argues That VeggieTales Is Racist, Villains Are "Vegetables Of Color"

If you thought the culture couldn't possibly get any crazier, the University Of California-San Marcos is happy to oblige with the argument that VeggieTales, the beloved Christian cartoon for kids by Phil Vischer and Mike Nawrocki, is racist because all of its villains are "vegetables of color."

Yes, you read that right.

The two-hour forum event took a “critical look at whiteness,” according to The College Fix, and was inspired by a class — “The Communications of Whiteness” — taught by professor Dreama Moon.

Attendees of the forum participated in a project suggesting indoctrinates children with racial bias due, they say, to villains often being "vegetables of color" with foreign or "ethnic-sounding" accents.

“When kids see the good white character triumph over the bad person of color character,” the project stated, “they are taught that white is right and minorities are the source of evil.”

The forum also featured other projects, like “White Avoidance,” “Civilized vs. Uncivilized,” “Kill the Land, Kill the Indian,” “White Women’s Role in White Supremacy” and “Gun Ownership and Racial Bias.”

Some of the university's students were offered extra credit for attending the forum, including those in "intercultural communication" and "women and gender studies" classes taught by professor Gloria Pindi.

One of Pindi’s students, however, believes that the forum went over like a lead blimp.

“I feel like the university system [leaders] are a bunch of hypocrites, they’re talking about stopping racism and promoting equality for all, yet they have no problem bashing white people,” the student shared with The College Fix. “They’re trying to make people feel guilty for being white.”
