It's pretty amazing: We live in a world where it takes just three days to go from this...
Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit that runs Sesame Street, said it will "conduct bias training and a thorough review of the ways in which they engage families and guests" at Sesame Place after a video of a potential racial bias incident went viral online.
"As a global nonprofit educational organization with a mission to help children grow smarter, stronger and kinder, Sesame Workshop has always stood for respect, inclusion and belonging and is committed to providing the highest quality engaging experiences for all children and families," the organization said in a statement.
For goodness's sake this is just stupid. I mean, yes, the video of the girls is sad. You never want to see a kid let down like that. The park should make sure its employees respond to kids who are very obviously looking for some character interaction.
But "bias training?"
Sure, the solution to this fake problem is useless, tiresome, critical race theory-style pablum that all of your employees will hate and none of them will remember three minutes after it's over.
Here's a better corporate statement:
"We're sorry that our performer didn't do his job properly and that these little girls had their feelings hurt. We will work to make sure all of our staff, especially costumed staff, give all of our guests the best possible experience moving forward. Also we gave the family free tickets."
But of course we live in the stupidest timeline so we have to deal with this stuff on a daily basis. Oh well.
