Cartoon Network is releasing a second anti-racism PSA developed by Emmy-nominated Steven Universe creator Rebecca Sugar and Ian Jones-Quartey, creator of O.K. KO! Let’s Be Heroes, aimed at providing kids and families with productive ways to disrupt the common narratives about racism.

The latest PSA, titled “Tell the Whole Story,” features Steven Universe’s Pearl (voiced by Deedee Magno Hall) and is set to debut Thursday, Dec. 3 on Cartoon Network’s YouTube channel and across the network’s social media platforms. “Tell the Whole Story” explores how Black inventors, heroes and leaders are often left out of history and challenges the viewer to ask themselves as they’re learning – who is telling the story?


“Tell the Whole Story” was developed in partnership with Dr. Kira Banks, a clinical psychologist whose research examines the experience of discrimination, its impact on mental health, and intergroup relations. She is co-founder of the Institute for Healing Justice and Equity and served as a racial equity consultant for the Ferguson Commission. Her vodcast Raising Equity explores what it looks like to intentionally raise children with an equity mindset – the knowledge and understanding of systemic inequities and to equip them to create an equitable society rather than accept the status quo.

The series of anti-racism PSAs each feature a different Steven Universe character and discuss the importance of understanding how racism affects individuals and encourages audiences to not be racist. The first PSA “Don’t Deny It, Defy It” was released in October.

They’re too busy either playing Among Us or wondering why Mall Santas make kids cry because they’re not allowed to have Nerf Guns.
That's why the biggest streamers are leftists like that dumbfuck Hasan.
The issue is though, when you're a teen you will most likely be a socialist, so that's nothing new. I worry about the aged mid 20 to 30 viewers who donate to commies.

There were black Roman warriors, black medieval knights
I mean, they wouldn't be necessarily unheard of, as the Roman Empire did expand into Africa, and there were Moors. But it wouldn't be as McDonald's-commercial diverse as Current Year America. People didn't travel or migrate nearly as much as they do now.

Ah, why bother with such hatefacts?

This part only illustrates how those people are so racist they immediately think every important civilization/person in history was white, and then project their ignorance into others (nevermind the fact that middle easterners are not always considered white). Not to mention the entire argument is an unironic "we wuz kangz".

I mean, blacks are sub-Saharan Africans. The Romans sent expeditions south but never expanded that far and like you said, the Africans they knew were lighter. There probably were a few black Africans in the Empire but if a teacher explains Roman history by "centering black stories" or whatever they're fucked in the head.

Moors aren't necessarily black all of the time either from what i can understand it was a catch all term for North Africans (and their slaves).
