Shock and disgust spread through a local children’s Library today when pages of a Where’s Waldo book were found which appear to depict racially homogenous European communities.
“I couldn’t believe that a book like that would just be sitting there in the children’s section,” said concerned parent Joanna Goyle, “how am I going to explain it to my son and daughter? They both saw the pages and straight away started asking questions.”
It is believed that some children exhibited nascent racist attitudes by not noticing the problem while others said the scenes ‘looked nice.’ A children’s Diversity Counsellor was immediately called.
Witnesses say the pages in question depicted various European cultures and that the figures shown were ‘just white people.’ Several witnesses who viewed the disgusting pages were physically ill as a result.
“They should call it ‘Where’s the black folk'” exclaims local social justice specialist Shaun Kwaliti, “I don’t care if this thing was printed in the ’90s or something,” he says, “racist, toxic, literature simply shouldn’t exist when it can do so much damage and violence.”
A librarian reportedly pointed out that some of the scenes in question appeared to be set in ‘Renaissance Italy’ and ‘Medieval Times’. This was a violent and marginalising attempt to justify the existence of highly toxic racist screeds. We can happily report that the librarian in question was shamed, fired and sent into the badlands where she surely perished, as all racists should.
A book burning will be held Thursday lunchtime.
