Just heard Gone With the Wind has been removed from the HBO Max streaming service amid concerns over its racist depiction of black characters.

Where will this all end? There seems to be a momentum gathering fueled by knee jerk reactions.

Maybe it's time for all to step back from such actions and allow sensible dialogue to take place. This all could get more out of hand than it already is.

sigh

Indeed, but quite often, reacting to emotions without due consideration can lead to undesirable consequences.

uh oh

We can't change our past by removing the things that we are not proud of, instead of hiding the history of the world, we should be more concerned about how we shape our future, and trying to evolve as a society...

I don't pay for cable TV... I don't watch much TV... Why... is there so many police shows?... dunno Maybe thats part of the problem, turn on the TV at night, and its all police drama shows, crime drama, and lots of violence... am I the only one that hates cop shows? ... laugh I must be, because every year, more cop shows... Well, I enjoy being different... wave

The tv show "Cops" was just canceled after 32 years.

Modern day book burning (that's next). Many laughed at the nonsense that was permeating throughout universities. The psychopaths they produced may have the last laugh. Though I surely hope not.

Shades of the Maoist revolution. Though most students now are pig ignorant of history. They'll destroy their future and they won't even realize they're doing it. Mass mental disorder. Follow Gad Saad on Twitter for someone who dissects perfectly the madness.

disgraceful, we now have to rewrite history, our heritage, we cant change that, but do we sweep it under the carpet ?
ok it was wrong, and I cant condone it, but isn't this just another excuse to sanitize and politically correct the world to suit others ?
remember when we had to remove Robertsons jam gollywogs ?
you don't make changes by alienating people
I think there will be a backlash :-(

I used to sell tin signs as side line way to make untaxed cash. I had quite a bit of what would nowadays be considered offensive signs, Aunt Jemima and the like. My best customer for that "art" was an elderly black man. He would follow me from to Street Fair to festival to car show hoping I found something that he didn't have in his collection. I once asked him why he was so fascinated with the subject and didn't he find it racist and offensive? He said, it is important we remember our history!

I think they are all going daft! Censoring history will not erase it. At least HBO will add comment and then offer again. But, isn't that what our parents and teachers USED to do? The movie was made in 1939. It was a master piece of cinematography for it's time. When it came to the burning of Atlanta, no CGI. The actors fled through the burning of an old set the studio no longer needed.
One black star won an award even. Back then, racist mecca. I guess todays thinking is it should have been criticized as token?
At what point will there be a huge backlash when people figure out they are being manipulated by the few.
Where does it stop? OK...I am a full blood German, dad was born in Berlin even. Now...I want all references to the holocaust stopped. No movies, books, photos..nothing. It offends me. It was in the past. Why should I have to be reminded of what Germans long before me did. My dad hated Hitler. It is an insult that I have to re-live the horrors of WW2.
Same goes for Japanese. Why do they have to see what happened during the war.
Mexicans, eliminate all references to the war with Texas.
England, eliminate all books talking about Rome because Caesar raided and took over the British Isles.
What part of historical past can't the snowflakes grasp. That is what built todays world.
No slavery, guess you would now be living in Africa and fighting Boko Harum instead of the US.
The more you study the past and acknowledge it, the better chance to change the world for the better and not repeat it. Guess people are so wimpy now they can't shake their head and laugh at how things USED to be.moping

Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.


That’s the immortal line that encapsulates the spirit of everything woke hates. The ungaslightable man.
