French Sociologist says “The Smurfs are Racist!” French Sociologist says “The Smurfs are Racist!”

A new book written by French academic Antoine Bueno suggests that the Smurfs are racist and spread anti-Semitism.

In Le Petit livre bleu (The Little Blue Book) Bueno tries to demonstrate that their community “is an archetype of a totalitarian utopia, full of Stalinism and Nazism”. He claims racism is clearly evident in the story Black Smurfs where purity of blood is vital – and brown is ugly – and that in The Smurfette the blond Aryan is idealized.
