The left regularly labels iconic staples of Americana racist.
In the past they’ve attacked peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, hoop earrings and even casting a black lead in Star Trek.
But you won’t believe what classic childhood cartoon the left just called racist.
A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is one of the iconic TV specials of American tradition and culture.
It teaches to love and accept people for whom they are and to be thankful for the friends and family in one’s life.
But the left called it racist because of a single scene.
Franklin, the show’s black character, is shown sitting my himself on one side of the Thanksgiving table.
The other characters are seated on one side of the table while he is seated across from them.

Let’s talk about Franklin. Dude gets invited to Charlie Brown’s by Peppermint Patty. Then he finds out that it wasn’t a real invite, a dog is cooking the food and he’s gotta sit by himself at dinner. That’s Get Out. #CharlieBrownThanksgiving

Am I woke now, why is Franklin in Charlie Brown Thanksgiving sitting all by himself at the table. Man. Things that I did not notice as a child.

Charles Schultz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip, was avidly anti-racism.
In fact, he drew attention to it in his comic strip.
And he specifically added Franklin into his iconic series because he wanted to improve race relations in the United States.
The idea for Franklin was inspired from a letter from a black schoolteacher in Los Angeles.
The teacher had phoned multiple cartoonists and they were all scared to add a black character due to the potential repercussions that might have ensued.
But Charles Schultz decided to add a black character anyway, and it worked.
