Saga of ‘Racist’ Sesame Street Mascot Draws Outrage

Sorry to report that the strange green-looking Rosita Sesame Street Mascots are now America’s most visible symbol of racism. According to multiple viral posts and a clipped video, the mascot snubbed two black children at a parade because of the relentless racism harbored in the creature’s heart.

No, this isn’t satire. Rather, it’s actually an ongoing scandal being pushed by race grifters and those who look everywhere to confirm their own perpetual victimhood. On that note, you’ll be less than surprised that Ben Crump, who recently demanded “answers” about a police shooting involving an armed man who tried to kill a woman and her children, is in the middle of the outrage.

If you watch the video, what you’ll see is the mascot walking down a line of people, high-fiving what appears to be a white woman. He then wags his finger at the same white woman, seeming to signal he can’t do something. Two black children reach out for hugs from the mascot and then they are both passed on.

This out-of-context clip is clearly the story. It’s actually not true. There are many possible explanations, and an interesting photo to add further detail.

A statement from Sesame Street claims the mascot didn’t see the two black children. That’s believable given how hard it can be to see out of those suits. Why did he wave them away? AccOderding to people on the scene, Rosita wasn’t waving off the first white woman orThe two children were black. Instead, the two children were moving to the person in the back of the crowd to ask for a baby. This would be safe.

Then there’s this, which offers a very stringent rebuttal to those replaying claiming this was an act of blatant racism.

Yes, that’s the same mascot at the same parade hugging other black children. That would seem to confirm that 1) the mascot didn’t see the children asking for a hug, and 2) that the mascot was actually motioning to someone behind them. However, other possibilities exist, like the fact that the mascot simply wanted to leave the parade’s center after interacting with people. What’s clear, though, is that this wasn’t some rabid racist mascot out snubbing black kids for fun.

Hilariously, the family involved has retained a lawyer for…reasons.

How could this be a case for legal action? Although you could assume that some discrimination laws were in effect, intent would still be difficult to prove. It is obvious that there was no discrimination because the mascot hugged other children of color at the parade.

Everything is, in short, stupid.
