After six Dr. Seuss books were unceremoniously canceled over revelations of their supposed racism, Big Tech giants rallied to further enable the most recent wave of digital book burnings.

On Thursday, internet auction site eBay confirmed that they were “scouring” their open auctions for the canceled Dr. Seuss titles, “reviewing seller profiles, and removing the listings, which the site claims violate its ‘offensive materials policy.’”

According to eBay’s offensive materials policy, “Listings that promote or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination aren’t allowed.”

“In order to promote trust and respect among our diverse community of members, eBay does not allow items that promote or glorify racial, sexual or religious intolerance, or promote organizations that hold such views,” the policy reads:

Listings that promote, perpetuate or glorify hatred, violence, or discrimination, including on the grounds of race, ethnicity, color, religion, gender or sexual orientation, aren’t allowed. This includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Slurs or epithets of any kind
  • Slavery items, including reproductions, such as tags, shackles, documents, bills of sale, etc.
  • Items with racist, anti-Semitic, or otherwise demeaning portrayals, for example through caricatures or other exaggerated features, including figurines, cartoons, housewares, historical advertisements, and golliwogs
  • Black Americana items that are discriminatory
  • Confederate battle flag and related items with its image
  • Historical Holocaust-related and Nazi-related items, including reproductions
  • Any item that is anti-Semitic or any item from after 1933 that bears a swastika
  • Media identified as Nazi propaganda
  • Listings that imply or promote support of, membership in, or funding of a terrorist organization
However, other titles and content which appear to violate this policy remain available on eBay, even while Dr. Seuss books continue to be wiped from online auctions.
