Charlie Brown Christmas

We all know that there are many different Charlie Brown specials. This past Tuesday while at the local bar for their wing night extravaganza, I noticed one thing. The thing that I noticed is that there are no Spanish or Asian kids in the Charlie Brown Movies.

I noticed this while Merry Christmas Charlie Brown was on in the bar. I bought up the point of there only being a single black in the movie, and an old buddy of mine told me that what I said was true.

What I'm getting at is this: if you come to think about it, the Peanuts movies and comic strips are somewhat racist. If you watch closely, there's the stereotypical token black kid, whose name I don't know and Pig Pen, who could represent the homeless community, but what about the Spanish and Asian kids Shultz?
