Today’s Sesame Street Is Brought To You By The Number 1488

Blacks have been on Seasame Street many times in the past, now the Muppets are made to act like they never even saw a black person until now.

Liberalism is a mental disease.

Well, last week Sesame Street introduced a new character that only Elmo can see: Elijah, a well-spoken, responsible black father who stays actively involved in his son’s life and rationally discusses matters of race with nonblacks without resorting to ad hominem diatribes.
Big Bird had a better chance of being believed.
Welcome Elijah and Wes, the new black Muppets. As described by NBC News:
Sesame Street has two new Muppets, a Black father and son, in an effort to help children understand racial literacy. In the promo, Elmo asks why Wes’s skin is brown. His dad Elijah explains how “the color of our skin is an important part of who we are.”
“They see color: Two new Black ‘Sesame Street’ characters explain racial difference to children,” exclaimed CNN in a celebratory headline lauding the push in children’s entertainment to force kids to “see color” (because evaluating people based on anything other than race is racist).
According to the official Sesame Street “racial justice” webpage (yes, that’s a real thing), “All kids need a strong individual and group identity, but racism hurts the healthy development of both.” Wait…“all kids” need a strong “group identity”? Doesn’t “all” include white? Damn…Sesame Street’s gone white nationalist! It’s a literal call to aktion to join the Church of the Creator! (Jokes aside, how long before that sentence gets rejiggered?) The website repeats the line from the promo: “The color of our skin is an important part of who we are.”
In the promotional video, Elijah informs Elmo, “Things on the outside, like our skin color, our hair texture, our noses, our mouths and eyes, make us who we are. Many people call this race!”
At one point, Elmo picks up a dead leaf from the ground and says, “This leaf is brown like Wes’ skin.” He then compares the father/son duo’s brown skin to his own red fur.
Yep, that’s exactly what black people love hearing: “Your skin, which looks like this dried-up dead leaf, also resembles animal fur.” Again, jokes aside, how long before this promo gets banned as genocidal racism?
Perhaps the most alarming aspect of the introductory “Elijah and Wes” video is the fact that Elmo and the other Muppets appear to have no idea what black people are. They ask the father and son, “What are you? Why are you brown?” as if this is the first time they’ve ever seen a person of color. Over the decades, there have been dozens of black characters on the show (there’ve been black Muppets as well). Gordon Robinson, owner of the iconic 123 Sesame Street brownstone, was the first character introduced during the show’s premiere in 1969. The character was only retired four years ago. That means that for almost fifty years, the Muppets were literally staring at the guy going, “What the hell’s your deal, you leaf-skinned freak?”
It took Elmo, in 2021, to finally ask, “Okay, what are these brown-colored creatures anyway?”

When I was a kid, I was fortunate to meet the guy who plays Gordon twice. The first time that I saw him, the lady who played Susan was there with them.

God bless you and them always!!!
