Nickelodeon celebrated Earth Day this year by teaching their audience about “environmental racism” and its impact on climate change.
“What do these cities have in common?” said the host of the segment, CBS News correspondent Jamie Yuccas. “They’re all examples of environmental racism, a form of systemic racism where minority and low-income communities are surrounded by health hazards because they live near sewage, mines, landfills, power stations, [and] major roads.”
Conservatives blasted Nickelodeon for their attempts at indoctrinating children.
“Remember the good ole’ days when the network just aired salute your shorts, hey dude, rugrats, the adventures of Pete and Pete, Rockos modern life … AND didn’t peddle this left-wing drivel. Sad – truly sad,” said Townhall.com senior editor Matt Vespa
“If you have kids that still watch Nickelodeon, turn it off,” said a user on Twitter. “They run the racial and lefty bs all the time. Aimed right at your kids.”
Over the summer, Nickelodeon suspended its shows with a message saying “I CAN’T BREATHE” for eight minutes and 46 seconds in reference to the death of George Floyd.
