Lawyer Nick Rekieta sums it up rather succinctly.
If you see black people as orcs: you are the problem— Rekieta Media (@RekietaMedia) July 9, 2020
If you impose present impressions on things made decades ago: you are the problem
If you think fantasy worlds must be commentary on contemporary social issues: you are the problem

In other words, WOTC's being pozzed again.
Do not give money to people who hate you. Do not buy WOTC's products new. Not for D&D. Not for Magic. Not at all. Buy used if you must, but otherwise give your money to those making their own versions of the game (legal thanks to the Open Game License making D&D open source 20 years ago). What would those be? A short list includes:
- Adventurer, Conqueror, King
- Lion & Dragon
- Dark Dungeons
- Swords & Wizardry
- Basic Fantasy
- Labyrinth Lord
Yes, you can buy new copies of older editions (e.g. D&D Cyclopedia) but that money goes to WOTC's coffers (after the merchant takes their cut) so I advise against it. Talk to Harlock for digital copies, otherwise buy used ones if you can; don't buy new physical ones unless you have no other choice. (Of course, that's where the SJWs want to take this, so that you have to give them your money.)
And, of course, you can just bookmark the d20 System Reference document and tinker your way to the D&D you want if you'd rather spend time than money. That's assuming you bother with some form of Official D&D at all; there are other fantasy alternatives--Palladium, for example--that are close enough that you can get folks to play that otherwise balk at not-D&D.
