Among the recently retracted books by Dr. Seuss is one that includes a stereotypical drawing of an ‘Eskimo’. The company handling publication of the beloved children’s author/illustrator discontinued the books because of problematic portrayals that don’t stand the test of time. The action earned praise from some and backlash from others who say it’s cancel culture run amok. Individuals, institutions, public monuments and works of art and literature are all facing new accountability over current or past actions and statements that don’t align with modern sensitivities. But is the accountability fair? Who decides what the standard is?
