How does Dahl stack up on political correctness?

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory has been popular over the years, but how has it fared through the movie adaptations and cultural changes? Well, it depends on what part of the story you analyze. This article takes a look at racism in connection with Oompa Loompas. A great read to see the changes throughout history and Dahl's comments on why and when he decided to make revisions.
