Turns out Arthur the aardvark is an anti-racist ally

Last week, the beloved children’s series “Arthur” released a short PSA where the titular aardvark and his bunny pal Buster react to a video we don’t see that sounds like it displays police brutality against Black people. The video isn’t described in detail, but Buster says “I can’t believe someone would be hurt like that, just because they’re Black.”

Buster is shocked that something so bad could happen in their neighbourhood, but Arthur tells him it happens everywhere, becauseThey call Mrs. MacGrady, their school’s wise cook and lunch lady, who tells them racism is like a disease: “if you don’t treat it, it’s just going to get worse.” She tells the boys it’s not enough to say “I’m not racist” or act like it’s someone else’s problem. “We have to actively fight against racism,” she said, before quoting her friend,. She encourages them to talk about racism with the people in their lives, to ask questions and keep leaning, and to listen to and try to empathize with people about their experiences with racism.

And most importantly, if you see someone being treated unfairly, stand up for them. “It may be scary, but it’s the right thing to do.”

How the Anti-Saloon League, responsible for Prohibition, shaped modern racist policing - Macleans.caProhibition created the perfect storm for the mass incarceration of ethnic minorities, who’d been driven into the contraband trade through inequality of economic opportunity, then zealously policed for being involved. '...ethnic minorities, who’d been driven into the contraband trade...' Translation = 'minorities were not smart enough to see what the crafty white man was doing to them.' Sorry, but I'm not buying into this revisionist, left-wing (and subtley racist) historical interpretation.
