Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

WHO IS SERIOUSLY QUESTIINING SESAME STREET

Sesame street is an original classic that is timeless. It is ignorant to consider taking sesame street off television or even to change it. I grew up with sesame street and there is nothing wrong with it what so ever. To consider that is political and reckless. Please leave sesame street alone!!!!!!
