"Several Dr. Seuss books have risen to the top of Amazon's bestseller list just days after the author's estate said it would stop publishing six books that contained racist or offensive imagery.

Dr. Seuss Enterprises, which preserves the author's legacy, said it worked with a panel of experts to determine that the books "portray people in ways that are hurtful and wrong." Those titles, including "And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street," "Scrambled Eggs Super!," and "The Cat's Quizzer," have since sold out at booksellers."

So a company made an internal decision to not publish 6 books, and the public, in its outrage, responded by buying a lot of that company's other books? Interesting strategy.

Your thoughts?
