After "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" aired last week, people started calling it RACIST, because Franklin, the black character, sits by himself on one side of the dinner table, and on a broken chair.
Somehow, people suddenly noticed that during the dinner scene, Franklin . . . the black character . . . is sitting by himself on one side of the table, while the other characters are sitting together opposite him.
Of course, there are also two people at the heads of the table . . . but the point is that Franklin looks pretty lonely by himself on the long end.
To be fair, the reason Franklin even exists is because "Peanuts" creator CHARLES M. SCHULZ purposely added Franklin to the group back in 1968, after the assassination of MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.
He even threatened to QUIT when his publisher questioned the decision. So it seems strange that Schulz would campaign for a black character, only to purposely disrespect him a few years later.
That didn't stop some people on twitter that complained about it... What do you think?
