Racist and anti-American cartoons disguised as humor

This website contains cartoons that are racist and have anti-American sentiment. My kids' school concurred with my opinion and removed this website as one of their resources. However, the owner Karen Carr would not consider the possibility that the cartoons on her website are inappropriate for children. Parents should be aware. This type of mentality should not be propagated throughout America or influence America's children.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3):
Kids say (6):

The content and photos on this site are age-appropriate and engaging. It's just too bad the same can't be said for the ads, which are often geared toward adults. Before your child starts researching ancient China or Islamic history on this site, you may want to take a look at the ad content in the relevant sections.

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.
