Sesame Street teamed with CNN for a town hall on the Black Lives Matter protests around the county, with Elmo’s dad explaining that “across the country, people of color, especially in the black community, are being treated unfairly because of how they look.”
Read the dialogue of the segment as transcribed by Breitbart below:
“They look upset,” Elmo said. “Are the protesters sad?”
“They are sad and upset and they have every right to be, Elmo. People are upset because racism is a huge problem in our country,” Louie continued, explaining the concept of racism to Elmo.
“Racism is when people treat other people unfairly because of the way they look or the color of their skin,” he said, spurring confusion with Elmo.
“The color of their skin? Elmo doesn’t understand, daddy. Elmo has friends with different types of skin, oh, and fur, too,” Elmo said.
“I know Elmo, but not all streets are like Sesame Street,” Louie added. “On Sesame Street we all love and respect one another. Across the country, people of color, especially in the black community, are being treated unfairly because of how they look, their culture, race and who they are,” he continued, adding, “What we are seeing is people saying enough is enough. They want to end racism.”

Why is a child lecturing the world?— Martin Andre (@MartinAndre4) June 11, 2020
”Because you’re a monster to question the integrity of a child.”
MUPPETS were on CNN a few days ago, and those who questioned their motives were criticized for questioning ELMO (a puppet!!!)
WAKE UP‼️ The UN is destroying the western world.
Evidently CNN had Muppets Elmo & Louie on the air.— HAP (@hap317) June 10, 2020
