“A 2012 article on Business Insider titled, “Before Dr. Seuss Was Famous He Drew These Sad, Racist Ads,” details works by the artist showing “black people…presented as savages, living in the tropics, dressed in grass skirts,” and “Arabs…portrayed as camel-riding nomads or sultans.””
“And Philip Nel, a scholar and professor of children’s literature, wrote in the book Was the Cat in the Hat Black? that some of Seuss’s work was steeped in racist undertones. Nel argued that the character in the Cat in the Hat “was based on racial stereotypes and inspired by traditions of blackface minstrel entertainment,” wrote the Atlantic. “

“Un artículo de 2012 sobre Business Insider titulado “Antes de que el Dr. Seuss fuese famoso dibujara estos anuncios tristes y racistas”, los detalles de obras del artista mostrando “negros … presentados como salvajes, viviendo en los trópicos, vestidos con faldas de hierba, “y” árabes … retratados como nómadas o sultanes de camellos “.”
“Y Philip Nel, un erudito y profesor de literatura infantil, escribió en el libro Was the Cat in the Hat Black? que algunos de los trabajos de Seuss estaban llenos de matices racistas. Nel argumentó que el personaje del Gato en el Sombrero “se basaba en estereotipos raciales e inspirado en las tradiciones del entretenimiento de los blackstones”, escribió el Atlántico.”
