“A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” gets warmth because it’s a black character’s depiction.
You’re a racist man, Charlie Brown!
Critics beat ABC’s “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” for its only black sign, Franklin, alone on one side of the holiday table ̵
Meanwhile, white friends – including Peppermint Patty, Charlie Brown, Sally and Snoopy – all sitting over him in real chairs when they party, told Twitter users.
The special, debuted on November 20, 1973, was aired again on Wednesday – which led to social media rage over the gäng’s very insignificant picnic table arrangement.
“Why is Franklin in Charlie Brown Thanksgiving sitting just at the table. Man. Things I Did not Notice As A Child,” @ Asharp52 blasted on Twitter .
Others said good sadness about a seating chart that would have delighted George Wallace.
“Do not check Charlie Brown Thanksgiving anymore until they sit on the same side of the table as Franklin,” another critic tweeted, along with two black power-style fist emojis.
The current scene centers on an improvised holiday party – of toast, jelly beans and ice cream – in Charlie Brown’s back yard.
At one point, poor lonely Franklin turns over in his half-folded chair.
“They give our friend a busted chair and will not even sit on the same side of the table, more evidence that Charlie Brown and his cohorts are RACIST,” hit Twitter users @ mwizzy128 .
But others defended the classical specialty and pointed out that the creator Charles Schulz struck Franklin to threw to stand up against racism in 1968.  “Kindly get an historical context. Charles M. Schultz was a trailblazer and hit racism at that time by adding Franklin to reflect the question … and challenging what happened in society, ” Tweeted California Radio Show Host Mark Larson .
