(4 stars)

valuable stories for eveyone. one thing that strikes me, is the intellect expected of kids back then. Education has really been dumbed down.

Dispicable


(5 stars)

The morality depicted in this story is firmly rooted in a Eurocentric world view. Eurocentric world views are now known to be inherently Raycyst and evil. Also the protagonists were all defined by a binary gendering system now known to marginalize femxles, and 2SLGBTQTIA+ persons. Needs to be removed. Morality needs to be recontectualized in terms of hip-hop dance and an affinity for marginalized peoples.
