Charlie Brown is now a racist. Yes, the kid who cannot kick a field goal, whose dog is more well liked amongst his peers and is just generally, a lovable loser, is now a raging member of the KKK.
Social media has spoken has deemed that not just Charlie, but the entire Peanuts gang probably all have white-hooded robs. Twitter users are pointing to one scene in ‘A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving’ as evidence of the extreme racism secretly harbored by Charlier, Linus and Lucy.
How is this scene racist? Well, according to Twitter, it’s because Franklin, the lone black character is sitting by himself.
Not watching Charlie Brown Thanksgiving anymore, until they sit some people on the same side of the table as Franklin ✊🏾✊🏾

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.

This used to be a family tradition when I was a child. Now that I’m an adult and woke- I’ve thrown a middle finger to #CharlieBrownThanksgiving America has been giving us the #foldingchairtreatment for 400 years- I won’t tolerate it from my cartoons too. pic.twitter.com/9hoKeNth0C

This breaks my heart. My mom and I watched this every year until she passed. Why didn't I see this before? 😡

How TF the dog gets a regular chair but not Franklin? And why is he sitting by himself? Just wrong on many levels. #CharlieBrownThanksgiving

I want y'all to look at the setup of this table before and after they knew where Franklin wanted to sit. They treated him like you can "catch" Black #CharlieBrownThanksgiving pic.twitter.com/1daaGDLtyT

Apparently, social media also missed the classic’s blatant sexism as Marcie is also sitting at the end of the table all by herself. Was Charles Schultz a raging racist and sexist?
No, but social media users must fill their time by asking pointless questions about a 40-year-old cartoon.
In the words for Charlie Brown, good grief!!
