Last week I introduced you to the (accidentally?) racist children's book, "Woofus." This week, in part two, it gets even worse.

The Increasingly Cringe-Worthy Saga of Woofus Continues

I'm especially interested to hear what halfshellvenus thinks!

Good lord. Even in my worst imaginings, I could never have envisioned THAT name for the kitten. Very wise decision not to repeat it for KFU.

You may have to either burn that book when you're done, or send it to a museum as an artifact of racism.

Poor Woofus-- Daddy was a poodle, and somehow the rest of the world sees "defective dog" rather than poodle.

I was thinking about the "wooly" hair thing last week, and while I know that's a common (really negative) description of black people's hair, I've always thought thought of their hair as being more like a cloud. A 3-D cloud that is not vapor! How awesome is that?

Wow. I just read both of your posts on this book, and... wow is about all I've got.
