    Laura Ingalls Wilder's name is set to be removed from a major children's book award after concerns were raised about the "Little House on the Prairie" author's depiction of certain races in the early-to-mid 20th century.

    I hope that this PC a-moralistic / revolt against Judaeo Christian values and principles... BS is just one of those things that will come 'full circle' in another 80 - 100 years... lol, I expect it will! Every generation somehow has this ability to narcissistically think that their feeble attempts are somehow.... not what they are, ... feeble.

    Um, so what?

    So guess what, views change over time, and a lot of things she wrote really do seem racist today.

    Opinion | Don’t overlook the racist content in this book series

    One of the most egregious examples of this racism occurs in “Little House on the Prairie,” when Wilder states that her mother believed that “the only good Indian was a dead Indian.” There are numerous other examples of Ma Ingalls’s racism — highlighted by the illustrations by Garth Williams of fierce-looking Indians — found in that same book. Less overt is the racism contained in the second paragraph of “Little House in the Big Woods,” when Wilder details her surroundings and neglects to mention the presence of American Indians who also lived there: “There were no houses. There were no roads. There were no people. There were only trees and the wild animals who had their homes among them.”

    Genocidal attitudes towards the Native Americans is a "Judeo-Christian" value?

    Maybe it's time to rethink your values.
