Facts (they are important):

1. The National Education Association (NEA), the group that initially decided to celebrate "Read Across America Day" on Theodore Geisel's birthday, made a conscious decision to de-emphasize Dr Suess in favor of lesser-known, often minority authors. They apparently did this because Dr. Suess' estate still sells millions of books a year and likely also because of his allegedly problematic depiction of Jews, blacks and Asians. They made this decision in 2017.

2. The executors of the literary estate of Dr. Seuss announced that they would allow six Seuss books ("And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street," "If I Ran the Zoo," "McElligot's Pool," "On Beyond Zebra!," "Scrambled Eggs Super!" and "The Cat's Quizzer") to fall out of print due to potentially offensive imagery contained within the volumes.

3. Dr. Seuss was well known as a bed-wetting liberal. His books, Marven K Mooney, Will You Please Go Now? (Watergate), The Lorax (environmentalism) and The Sneeches (civil rights/anti-McCarthyism) are all well known allegories for his liberal leanings. Had he lived to see #45, you can bet he would have made another best seller.

Whether the decisions of the NEA or the estate of Dr. Seuss are right in their decisions, I don't know. As an old white guy who loves all those books, any bias/inappropriate depictions flew over my head. But what the he!!, let's blame Biden. Because, you know, it must be his fault.

Just an officer acting stupidly. China Joe is one of the most racist office holder we still have left in government. That's saying a lot since there are so many Democrats in government.

What lesson Dr Seuss best teaches all America is that eventually the cancel crowd will get around to you. It was only the week before they got the Muppet trophy to mount on their wall. This week was Dr Seuss. The sad thing is I only mentioned a few in the kids category. We got several solid liberal reporters who got cancelled. A few more liberal celebrities went down. Nope, not woke enough.
If you don't understand what is going on right now, you might want to look up the word "Facism".

SPLC (who were tied to multiple shootings) on the Sneetches: This message of 'acceptance" does not acknowledge structure power I'm balances... Instead of encouraging young readers to take action against injustice, the story promotes a race-neutral approach."

Gee, that sounds really bad. Who would ever want to judge someone not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character? Good thing the Democrats were all over this one.

They should just stop publishing Dr. Seuss altogether if he was so racist that he'd include such imagery in any of his books.

Southern Law Poverty Center. They are tied to multiple terrorist acts here in the US.

Yes ol 1/2 brain joe is pretty limited mentally, his energy, various normal functions it takes to run a country.

Even with all the help around( it is obvious he is struggling & "they" are limiting his public exposures to a
minimum. What he says or dosnt say about Dr seuss dosnt matter much to me.More import things like running the country( so far really badly)- how our enemys see him etc ( the everything is racist bs is both sad & funny imo - it is not funny that they want to silence/cancel/ppl etc- not at all imo- and theres whole a lot of that going on these days......

Facts (they are important):

Of course, all of your "facts" are irrelevant. The OP cited an article indicating that Biden deleted reference to Dr. Seuss from his speech, rather than follow the lead of his two predecessors. Interestingly, Obama had great praise for Seuss and the inclusiveness of his books. You would think the old nose-breaker would be sensitive to the horrific racism in Seuss's art.
